  • Oh, my! ART!
    • Long Lost Art by MaryAnne Long
on: December 02, 2014, 07:33:24 PM
I got a call today from a friend who wants me to do a painting or drawing for his wife for Christmas.  She already has an oil painting that I gave her and her son has one of my oil paintings as a graduation gift from law school.

I'm excited - I am thinking up possible subjects for the piece.  Her husband is partial to a drawing -- maybe a flower, lighthouse scene, or sea animal.

I'm excited - Oh, and he wants to buy 4 or 5 of my husband's wood turnings.  He's bought several in the past.

Am I famous now that one family is "collecting" my art?

Thanks, Fi, Dennis, Liana, and Natalie. 

I'm excited.  I sent the husband some samples - hope he picks a subject soon so I can get started.

Why put off until tomorrow  what you can do today.
