I've been so humbled and loved by the support of friends and family with my recent winter sales. I've kept the local shipping store on their toes with my odd-sized painting boxes across the United States.
My first painting shipped to a dear friend, Sallie D. in Virginia. "Brushstroke #4 - Growth" (Mixed Media 10" x 10" 2015) was meant to be hers and will soon be traveling with her as she starts the next chapter of her life in North Carolina. She and I met while teaching art in the public school system in Virginia and have been friends for over 15 years.
My second painting went to the home of my in-laws in Texas. Bev and Bill H. have been two of my biggest cheerleaders since my first art show. They have collected several of my paintings over the years and I was so excited when they said they wanted to add "The Unreliable Narrator" (10" x10" Acrylic on Canvas, 2015) to their collection.
My third painting sale was a big one, "Chasing Starlight" is a gorgeous rainbow filled 36" x 36" piece I completed in 2015 that traveled to live in Maryland with Helen and Clark R. Once upon a time, another lifetime ago, we were neighbors in Aldie Virginia. We have kept in touch via social media and the internet and I was so happy to see my painting travel to live in their lovely home.
My fourth painting, "Citizen of the Planet" (Mixed Media, 24" x 30", 2015) went to live in her new home in Virginia with another former neighbor of mine, Barbara T. I was so flattered when Barb reached out and added my painting to her collection in her home.
