When you buy a piece of art you love, it doesn’t matter how much you paid for it. The reality of it is that it’s priceless. You feel the pride of ownership, the commitment to beauty and, best of all, the joy of sharing your new painting off to friends and fellow art-lovers. However, are you safe from the financial loss?
Beauty in and of itself serves as indelible testament to the importance of art. A beautiful painting or song creates a sense of happiness in the viewer, filling his soul with wonder and contentment. Furthermore, such beauty may inspire the observer to have a more positive effect on the world around him, or to seek out similar scenes in the real world to further enrich his life.
