For many bloggers on ActiveRain we wonder "who is reading our posts?"  Sometimes we know because we receive comments on them.

But what about the general population?  Rarely do we get comments from the general public. 

I have a WordPress blog as well.  Many posts are written in both ActiveRain and BuyersAgentPortland.com

In August this year I published two posts

In my posts I wrote:

"If you notice, Fortuna does not have any arms. I would love to ask the artist what inspired him in this manner? Perhaps, even Fortuna relies on fate and luck in her fortune and does not make it for herself?"

And lo and behold, Simon Toparovsky answered me!! I received the following comment the other day.  I rarely get comments from consumers, the general public . . . let alone artists that I feature in my localism posts!

Made my day!  I love "FORTUNA"

 

You can see more of Simon Toparovsky's work here:  The Art of Simon Toparovsky Installations

In reality, I could never commission a work of art like this.   BUT . . . I can still be a patron of the arts through my posts!!

Fantastic, Carla! We know buyers and sellers read our blogs because AR gets such great position on Google, but to have a response like this must have been quite an exciting surprise!

Nicely done! But if you hadn't asked such an insightful question, you likely would not have gotten that response, so good for you!

I agree with #55 - you did a little more than just write about the art.  You asked a question which meant that the art touched you in some way and the artist responded to it.  Congrats!

Congratulations!

Normally, I never comment on posts with over 25 comments, Carla.  But, I, too, happen to be a big fan of Fortuna and Toparovsky.  My parents lived between Salem and Portland, and when I would visit them, we always made at least one stop to see this. 

Thanks for sharing your incredible  conversation with a master!
