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.
In August this year I published two posts
- ActiveRain: The Art of Simon Toparovsky "Fortuna" Sculpture in Lake Oswego
- WordPress: The Art of Simon Toparovsky in Lake Oswego
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!!
