I had my paintings for sale at a lovely annual event this afternoon and among many customers was this wonderful family — grandmother, mother and college student daughter. The mother purchased the gouache pictured as a birthday present for her daughter to take to college, while Grandmother cheered on.
It was delightful to hear how much this young woman enjoyed her painting, and art in general. Clearly the mother had learned art appreciation at the knee of the grandmother and has passed it along to the next generation. How happy am I that my painting has found such a happy home?!
