This particular painting, "Dragonfly Dreams," was promised to three different buyers; but stuff happens and the sale fell through each time. That convinced me it wanted to be out in the world, or at least out of my apartment. So I figured, I'd give it away and hope it would go to a loving home.
Life really surprises me sometimes and this turned out to be one of those times. A woman who already owns more of my paintings than anyone else - bid on it and won!
I don't recall which card she purchased or I'd show you that as well. Kim liked it so much, she had it framed. With the addition of her new piece from the silent auction, she now owns a total of seven pieces. Looks like I have my first collector!
I know a lot of artists are asked to donate their work, so I'm wondering what stories you might have to share about your experience with giving. It must be awkward to get bombarded with requests, but this felt really good and I hope I'll be in a position to do it again someday.
