|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.
