Clients, Collectors and Patrons.

"Lilies of the Field"
Oil on Canvas

It is always rewarding to make a sale. It is solid proof that someone values what you are doing. Again, while everyone who has ever purchased a card, print, or original piece of art from me has been important, every once in a while someone stands out.

Once a woman in her mid forties purchased a painting from me and it was the first piece of original art she had ever purchased! That's memorable.

A group of women bought a print for their friend who had the last moment couldn't make the trip with them due to hardship. Two years later they all made the trip together. She came and told me the story and how looking at the print every morning had helped her. I'll never forget those women.

This year at The Event at Rebecca Farm a young lady of about 14 years was one of my sales. She selected a print of "Lilies of the Field". While she was counting out her money, her mother asked her if she need her give her some money."Oh no" she replied, "I have it." She told me she was going to take it to the framer and once it was framed hang it in her bedroom.

She paid for this print with money she earned teaching riding lessons on her pony. Another sale that will be etched on my heart for all time.

Thank you all for helping me to continue to have the best job ever.
