Today I received the most wonderful email from Samatha in Toronto. She had purchased a watercolor painting of mine some time ago and was holding onto it until she could figure out the right home for it. As she wrote to me,
"I finally have your piece framed and hung. I took me forever. Last spring I carried it around in my diaper bag for 3 months and went to 3 different frame shops. Then I was looking through a closet and found an old vintage frame and print and I had long ago stored away. It's perfect! The frame has a great old-fashioned feel to it that compliments the classic style of the nude. It's a deep brown wood with very sublte gold leafing. I have it hung in my dining room, where it looks great and has received many compliments. I bought your painting as a gift to myself shortly after the birth of my son."
I love to hear stories of where my art goes to live after it leaves my studio and it's very refreshing to learn that this piece has ended up in such a nice loving home where it will be cared for and enjoyed! Thank you so much, Samantha, and thank you for letting me share your story! Best wishes to your family!!
