It's the simple things...

"Afternoon" in Italy!


Isn't  there a song out there....I think by the Rolling Stones....that has lyrics that go "you can't always get what you want, but can get what you need"? (Or something like that...) In any case, this happened to me late yesterday afternoon. Feeling gloomy because of the weather and "frustrations in the studio" I checked my Etsy convos before shutting down my computer for the afternoon...and there it was! A convo from my friend, Angela, who lives in Italy and who recently bought my painting, "Afternoon". In her convo, she left a short note about my painting but more importantly attached this pic showing the painting in its new home!

Now let me tell you! My spirits just soared!! Not only knowing where the painting now hangs but also the fact that Angela took the time to send me this picture. Life is good, isn't it!!! Thank you so much Angela for doing this for me. It means a lot.

I hope everyone's weekend is good. We're forecasted for cold, wet weather for the next couple of days...my wife just left for a long weekend with her sister who lives in Virginia...so it will be a quiet weekend inside for me. Just maybe I can make the painting I'm working on do what I want it to do!?

Whoa! Your painting forgot to put clothes on! My wife gets upset when I put nudes in my artwork. She's no fun! I sure can't hang anything up. I think I need to move to Italy. Anyway, great painting!

@Bill ~ thanks...it is one of my favorites to date. My wife is pretty good about this sort of thing...I've been working from the figure for a long time now so I guess she's gotten used to it!

@Erika ~ I think so! This was the painting that I sold mid-January and it took forever for the buyer to get it out of customs once in Italy. So this picture of where she has hung it is very special! (While I was happy to have made the sale, it was hard to part with the painting...so seeing it in its new home helps!)

Hey Dave!

Your painting looks beautiful in that spot and how wonderful that your friend, in Italy, no less, appreciated it and bought it. Congrats.
Thanks so much for your kind words on my blog. They were very much appreciated. :-)
