The first time …

That first time I offered my paintings for sale was one of the most petrifying, vulnerable moments I can remember (second only to having a teen aged son with a brand new driver’s license steer my car out of the driveway for the first time).   The reaction to my work was wonderful and I genuinely enjoyed my conversations with interested customers.  I particularly loved that the persons who purchased the paintings of water saw in these small works bodies of water that had special meaning for them — lake, ocean, Atlantic,  Pacific etc.  I was delighted to realize that my work evoked memories that made these folks smile.  That day, even more than usual, I headed home with a full and grateful heart.
