I was working at West of the Moon Gallery last friday for First Friday Art Walk. Shonto Begay is the featured artist there this month and he has quite a following.I was not surprised that the Gallery was full to crowed from 6:00 to 9:30 but, I was amazed by how many people were out and about.
Towards the end of the evening I was talking to another artist who had an opening reception that night at another gallery. He was very please with the turn out and response to his paintings and that he had sold some of his art. One of the painting that he sold was not the painting that received the most compliments. We then started talking about how we each have two or three pieces of artwork that people love. They are always talked about with great excitement and highly praised, and we both still have these paintings. We just figure that whoever is suppose to own them just hasn't come along yet.
The painting above is one of these paintings.
