So Excited!


 Water Striders- Mambo #5
acrylic on canvas
7x7
sold

I haven't been to see the show yet... I was quite house bound with my little guy tonight, but I did hear from the curator! Five paintings have already sold!!! When I told Tommy my news he asked if that meant he could get some new toys. Ha! Nope, it just means mommy can pay for some of the framing! Anyway, it is all very exciting and I can hardly wait for the opening reception coming up on Sunday. Here is one of the little abstract reflections that is in the show. I like the colours and energy of it, but I do think the layers show better in person.

So with all the illness my little guys have had in the last two weeks today I adopted a new best friend... Lysol spray cleaner...  but it may be a love/ hate relationship... the apple fresh scent soon gave way to a more clinical aroma. I'm not a germ-a-phobe, but I do think I will be a bit more cautious over the next little while. Oh, and hand sanitizer is my second best friend!

Congratulations! How exciting to know that people like your work enough to pay for it. Stay healthy!

Congrats on receiving the best compliment an artist can receive - someone willing to part with their hard earned cash for one of your pieces. And FIVE of them, at that!

I hope for a speedy recovery for both of your boys. It speaks volumes about your priorities in that you're home with them instead of out enjoying the accolades you deserve as an artist. Keep up the great work, mom/artist...
