The Hannah

On Friday my painting On the Road in Fredericton
went home to Fredericton and its rightful owners
Hannah Creaser and her family.  This was a happy reunion.   
Hannah is the young woman I photographed in the parking lot
 of the Superstore in Fredericton last year.  She is an amazing girl –
an actress, a singer and a champion wrestler.  The painting of
 Hannah has shown in Toronto, and New York, but it belongs
 in Fredericton.

We had a lovely time drinking coffee with Hannah
and her Dad, Eben and seeing the beautiful house Eben
built, and the super property they have.  We
were talking about Europe and how Hannah would
love Florence.  Eben reminisced about seeing the
Mona Lisa at the Louvre, and how valuable the painting
is, how it’s kept under thick glass.  Hannah said that 
one day this painting, (On the road in Fredericton) would 
be known as “the Hannah”, and be just as famous.
You can’t get a much better compliment than that.
A big shout out to Hannah and her Dad for their kindness 
on our visit and support of an artist who saw an image
and had to capture it. 

Have a meeting-wonderful-people day.
