portrait of Tobias and the Tigers for Artwalk. Now
Carm and I are both sick with a cold, but I decided
I had the energy to walk the painting of her son
Tobias around the corner and to get him back to his
In the studio left to right on the wall my Portrait of Peter Adam,
Tobias and the tigers and August Market Flowers
When I was painting the portrait of
Tobias from photographs I discovered that he
lived on the street three houses down from my house.
I didn't meet the actual boy, every bit as charming as
his photos, until about six months later, and I was so
happy because I felt like we were old friends.
This cold is fairly hefty, and though I
know I'm on the mend, I am calling it a day.
I am blessed with collectors who loan me their
paintings for shows, and I really appreciated seeing
the Tobias and the Tigers painting again. First of
all I love the painting, which is a good feeling, and
then it brought back all the wonderful memories
of doing the Pure Design show with the HGTV crew.
I think I'll dream about that wonderful day tonight.
Have a thanking-the-people-who-help-you-succeed day.
