SOLD ♥This painting is a world traveler that's been to places
I've never been. My lovely artist friend in the Netherlands,
Miranda Brouwers got me into an exhibition called
Kunst in Drimmelin in support of a nature reserve called
the Worp. The whole painting experience was a delightful
example of international co-operation. My friend wanted
a painting with my blue skies of her beloved spot. She
sent me many photos, and I researched the look here in
Toronto at a marsh that looks quite similar. The result --
my happy painting -- In the right place at the right time.
The painting traveled to the Netherlands rolled up in a tube,
was stretched by Miranda and exhibited in a beautiful church.
It came home just in time for another exhibition.
At the This Magic Land show the weekend before last it
sold to a collector who loved the painting featured on our
invitation, and enjoyed its back story too. I was so delighted
to deliver the painting to a collector who commissioned a
poignant work years ago of her mother and father.
I know she and her partner will enjoy living with the painting
as much as I loved creating it.
Have a doing-the-work-you-love day!
