Validation as an Artist

Ode to Lover, 14" X 11"
Oil/Cold Wax on canvas

All artists, I believe, are appreciative when someone or some organization encourages them in what they do by actually purchasing a work of art.  Emerging young artists, and emerging older artists (like myself!) must get the same thrill when such an event happens in their art-life.  For me, a recent purchase by the John Parrott Gallery in Belleville, a nearby town, has given me a hearty boost.  A small oil/cold wax piece, "Ode to Lover" is now in the gallery's Permanent Collection.  I have to say that I am very appreciative of the recognition, and thrilled to bits.
