Saying good bye.... in a good way :)

I'm always flattered when someone wants to buy any of my work...
especially an original...
and especially as a gift!

It's one of the greatest feelings...

A couple weeks ago I got up and checked my email to find a request to purchase this painting--  I don't sell the original paintings (unless they're commissioned) through PayPal to avoid fraud issues, etc. Instead anyone can email me if they're interested in purchasing an original. (Hopefully they don't suffer from email-phobia like me!)

I'm so relieved that this particular piece is going to finally find a home because it's one of the few that I spent way too much on the frame (lesson learned), and I've been getting tired of hauling it to art shows and being SOOOO paranoid about the frame getting messed up every time! (Soon I hope to start making my own frames, and thus will be able to easily repair them when needed.) Each and every time I've taken this painting to an art show or gallery event, it's been wrapped up in a giant fluffy cocoon for protection. Now it can finally find a permanent spot on a wall- I'm sure he painting is much happier now :)

I hope the recipient enjoys the gift and it finds (and creates!) a happy place in his or her home :)

Congratulations, Samantha - that is wonderful!!!

p.s. I can no longer read comments on my blog, nor make changes. I have to post from Flickr and can't use gmail nor Twitter...I think I have a virus. So, if you want to tell me, we'll just communicate on facebook or e-mail like we have been:

We love you,
Doris and Gizzy :-)

Doris! That is so sweet of you to go and comment on my blog when I know your computer is having issues :(

I hope you get them resolved soon, I hate when technology goes bad.

Thanks so much!
