Delivery of "Pen"

This morning I delivered "Pen" to a collector. These wonderful people love art and are so excited about my work, I always end up visiting for awhile. They want to know every detail and take such a an interest in what I do. I feel so very grateful for people that feel so strongly about the work, like all my blog family, and the ones that can and must have a piece. Anni received her painting , "Guilty" this week as well and sent such a lovely and overwhelming response.

Over the last few years I have wondered about all the paintings I have created, and what their purpose is in the world. At times, as they piled up on walls, in closets and under beds, it seemed like they had no purpose at all. Once the work began to go more and more out into the world, I realized how important it is to my life for the paintings to "connect" with another person and what an opportunity I have to bless others in a such beautiful way.

Congrats to these paintings on finding their new homes! Isn't it funny how some people are indifferent to our work, while others can't seem to get enough of it? I believe that everything we paint from the heart has its human soulmate out there somewhere. It's a beautiful and humbling thing when they find each other.

Congrats on both of these Tracey. I have a feeling they will be lovingly viewed in their new homes.

Wow... How cool that interaction must be. You continue to be an inspiration for me Tracey. I don't think I've ever seen "Guilty". I love it!

The purpose of beauty is to be beautiful! And your work is certainly that Tracey, for many, many reasons.
