Journal History

I know times are tough, and many people don't feel like they have the money to buy art. Not because they can't afford it, but because they feel that the newest technology, or a concert ticket is more important. So what would make art important enough to buy, rather than something that seems much "shinier" for the moment?

Scene From The West by GradyArt   Painted Sky by GradyArt

Art is, in fact, a lasting item. It will be there long after the next new technology is released or after the concert is over. It will bring you feelings, memories, humor, and a sense of satisfaction or happiness. It is always unique, a capture of the sky, flowers, scenery that looked like that for only one second of eternity.

Perhaps it is something you remember seeing, and want to preserve, to see again, or for your children and grandchildren to see. Maybe it is something you might have missed, or had seen, but not through the mind and lens of the photographer. No two moments are alike, the clouds will never be in the same spot, the blossom won't be turned the same way, or the same combination of fireworks won't ever burst that way again.

Add a picture you like to that blank space on the wall. It will be a subject of discussion, a prompt for memories, or just something to enhance the mood of the room. You will have the satisfaction of owning a unique print, one that is not mass produced, nor will it ever be.
Many of my images on my page are also available on greeting cards, post cards, coffee mugs, and other items. Please visit It will help make you happy!
