8" x 8" acrylic

This was another sale from St. Augustine.  A tiny little bungalow scene done with palette knife (thank you Leslie).  A really cute couple with a bunch of bags came to my booth YES!  We love to see that at art shows for all concerned!  They told me that they do all of their Christmas shopping for their grandchildren at art shows and always have!  We sure need more people like them.  They had been on a search for a painting that apparently a member of their family had seen the day before.  They got to my booth, got on the phone, and decided that indeed the little sunflower was the right one.  Yay for them - and yay for me.  About 45 minutes later only the Mr. came back and said he wanted to get this little ditty for his wife for Christmas.  She had admired it earlier but didn't want to buy because thy had already bought so much.  He told me that she was exhausted after 2 days of shopping and had gone to the car so he sneaked back to my booth to buy this for her for Christmas.  I was more than tickled.  Love those people who are patrons of the arts!   And if this couple read this - thank you from the bottom of my heart.  It made my day - to seek me out and then come back for more.  I'm so thankful.

Short sail

24" x 30" acrylic on canvas

This was my first sale of the day at St. Augustine this past weekend.  A really cute young couple obviously have good taste in art!  They covered the whole show in short order and decided on this one and another  painting from another great artist who uses a similar palette (great minds).  There was a ton of good work there this weekend and I felt very honored and fortunate to be a part of it all, and very pleased that this couple chose my painting over the rest.    They said they had to get back north so were making some quick (but obviously good) decisions on some new art work for their home.  They loved the palette - which of course I do too!  They took one of my cards so hopefully they will check out my blog so I can thank them (again) for their purchase.  This was one of my favorite paintings  - it's big and colorful.  What more is there?    Unfortunately, this cute couple was in such a hurry I didn't have time to even get to know them.  But I really appreciate their patronage and hope to see them again.
