Happy Client!--- watercolor

My day got an unexpected lift--- some clients stopped by the studio while I was working.. and asked to see some work. Of course, I love to share work and I began bringing out the latest.

They ended up loving some new watercolors-- 3 figurative swimmers [see photo]
and a large botanical swamp painting [Florida Corkscrew Nature Preserve]. I had been reworking parts of it as late as yesterday!

The chose 5 paintings to purchase... and that makes for a GREAT day!

They also purchased 4 paintings from me about 25 years ago -- so they have quite a spread of my work.

I'll be included photos of the swamp watercolor later -- as well as photos of the older paintings in their collection.

Woo hoo~

When someone sees your work and compliments it, that's a good thing - when someone sees your work and it speaks to them so that they must have it, that's a great thing! Congrats on the sales, I know it always is a welcome thing for working artists :) You deserve it, too, your work is FINE!!!
