Sold! Collector from Utah

What an incredible night! I hear this happening to other artists or read about it but to have it become a reality for me has put me on cloud #9!

Another red dot! This one for the 1st place winner in oils in Dubois, WY...in earlier days, known as Never Sweat, WY. ( learned that at our steak dinner tonight ).



A couple came into the show and was inquiring about a necklace by another artist; it was bedlam, so I said I knew the artist and would assist them in finding her.  Sale made for that artist......then a fellow artist came to get me, telling me my piece had sold to collectors from Utah and they wanted to meet me.  They are fabulous people that I connected with right away. we talked at length regarding my art and I have been invited to their home in Bear Lake, Utah for in the spring , to stay and soak in the beauty of the Utah landscape ( and paint, of course!)

What fun! I am honored to be living the life of an artist.......

Hi, Vicky...........I painted it on an Ampersand Panel and framed it :"floating" as I tend to use all the surface. I mounted a board on the frame back, then used a few spots of archival adhesive to mount to that board.

Thanks for asking....
