"Sunset on the Port Jefferson Harbor" was sold out in Mills Pond Gallery!
My painting "Sunset on the Port Jefferson Harbor" was sold at Mills Pond Gallery (St. James, New York) in a juried exhibition themed "A Sense of Place, Long Island".
This painting is a watercolor painting by a resident of the area, capturing a moment of the beautiful Port Jefferson Harbor.
Above all, as a local artist, I am proud of the area where I live, Port Jefferson. Often, when I need a break or want inspiration, I go out to this port and look at the sea. A beautiful harbor with ferries and numerous boats floating in a small U-shaped harbour, Port Jefferson has a magic that conveys a variety of colors and moods.
In particular, in this exhibition, each exhibition room at the Mills Pond Gallery was recorded as a video and uploaded to YouTube for anyone to see.
The small picture you see in the middle right is my picture. Thank you very much to the customer who purchased this painting.
I love painting and art and that is why I am dedicating my life to art. I think about it every day, try hard, and draw a picture. Similarly, I am always grateful to art lovers who love these paintings and art. People who love art always meet another world through paintings at any time and at any time.
Even in times of war, people who love painting see exhibitions and buy paintings. In the case of Lee Jung-seop, one of the artists I admire, he drew and sold paintings while he was a refugee during the Korean War. Even during the war, the exhibition continued, and I risked to see the paintings. As a painter as well as a lover of painting, I always admire the spirit of art. And personally, I hope that there will be more people like this so that the world will become more beautiful like a painting.
I hope that customer who purchase my painting will have a dream that another dimension opens in the room where this painting is hung, as if they are always with Port Jefferson Harbor. I hope that there will always be happiness, hope, joy, and excitement in it. Thank you again.
