I just had to put this painting back on my blog today. It is just amazing how life turns out. These last few weeks I had not heard from a friend in the USA for ages. I was considering emailing her, but for one reason or another I had not. Maybe because I had not been painting and did not want to tell her, you see, she was the first person ever to buy a painting from me who did not already know me. So although not my first sale, my first real meaningful one in terms of her being a stranger.
Since then she has become a great friend whom one day I hope to meet, with her family. She says they are all longing to visit Scotland one day.
This is one of two paintings she bought from me. On more than one occasion she has urged me to keep painting and I have because of her words.
It was she who told me the story of the man with the patches, I used on the other blog.
Life has not been going smoothly for her, but seems to be getting better again. I will never forget her, or her family and I will never forget this painting. I have small print of it in my study.
It and the other one were very large canvases. The painting was done in acrylic. I think the title says what was on my mind as I painted it.
I learned from her how to say, “Hello Ya'll.”
So let me say to Ya'll, have a great day and if you are looking for a little laugh to start the day check out the other blog.
