Our current issue sheds light on how to best build a meaningful art collection. When purchasing
artworks for your home, the golden rule is to always purchase what you love, to select artworks that
evoke emotion and a connection to a poignant event or time in your life. Art buyers who attempt
to match the artwork to their sofa or window dressing are actually far and few between. This issue
of ARTisSpectrum Magazine features paintings from the art collection of Joel Feliciano and his wife
Diane Fernandez, who have built their collection based on the premise of acquiring artworks with
which they feel a personal connection. I often speak with collectors who return to the gallery after
purchasing a work of art and comment about the joy they feel in being surrounded by what they take
pleasure in seeing each and every day. Often times a treasured photograph, a piece of sculpture or
a print becomes the focal point of conversation when guests visit, and the pleasure that the artwork
brings is experienced over and over again as if for the first time. Also consider the fact that what you
bring to your home is an extension of who you are because you identified with it. It is a way of allow-
ing guests to have a deeper understanding of who you are without verbal communication but with a
visual manifestation of your state of being!
