SOLD!

Just received notification that my painting "Blue Pitcher and Pears on Lace" (see post on April 24, 2010) was sold at the Georgia Watercolor Society National Exhibit!  It had also won an award (maybe why someone wanted to purchase it??)
Anyway - I'm very excited (can you tell!!) - but also a little sad.  You know how you have a few special paintings that surpass your expectations - that was one of mine - so I'm glad it sold but still a little sad not to see it again.

Congratulations,Deb! I am not surprised that that painting has won an award and that it has sold. It's a super painting. I also understand that part of you would be a bit sad since that painting was in fact part of you!

It's always bittersweet when one of the "babies" leaves the nest!! Congrats on both the award and the sale!! That was one FABULOUS painting!

Congrats Deb! A well deserved honor for a beautiful painting. It's hard to see some paintings go, but someone fell in love with it, and it's hanging in their home where they can enjoy it everyday.

Congratulations, on the prize and the sale! I'm not at all surprised--that painting is gorgeous--the light on the pears, the lace, the color of the pitcher: it has so many wonderful elements that ALL work!
And you can see it again anytime on your blog. Think how much the person who bought it will be enjoying looking at it.

Chris, Lisa and Laura - thanks for your comments. It does make me happy that someone will be enjoying it every day in their home. And, as my husband says, "just paint another one" (Oh yeah, riiiiiight - gee, why didn't I think of that!!!!)
