Queen of the Night... Sold! Guess where? At Aaron Brothers to a very nice lady who was getting a frame at the same time I was reframing this (the glass got cracked while transporting it from the Garden Party sale in August this year to my home). She saw my painting and heard I was entering it into a juried show the next day for sale and said it matched the colors in her living room so well. So I sold it to her, and as they were taking it into the framing room I said goodbye to an old friend who found a loving new home. What a road this painting traveled: the subject matter started in Peru (its a Peruvian Tree Cactus Flower), then went to Melbourne Australia where my brother found it on the cover of a Sunday newspaper and sent it to me, to America (where I painted it), back to Australia to my brother who personally thanked the photographer (who grows the cactus in his back yard) with a print, and finally to a woman of East Indian decent who thought it would match her home. Maybe it will go to India some day?
I'm a mother of 5, mother in law to the two wonderful ladies, Katina and Gabby, and "over the moon" for my granddaughter, Evie. I'm married to my words cannot express how great he is husband, Rich (jazz drummer extraordinaire). I also am a fan of my son Jonathan's painting, drawing and comedic talent, http://cave-o-horrors.blogspot.com/, and of the very talented actress, Katherine Celio, www.katherinecelio.com, and so proud of my daughter Aletheia who designs Apple Computer's web page. I go to lots of my daughter Bethany's soccer games and soon will be Grandma again to my son David and his wife Gabby's baby boy, Andre. I created this Fine Arts business in 2006 and hope it lasts for a very long while.
