"Connected" SOLD

12 X 12 , oil on museum quality panel
The title of this painting captures my feelings well.  Some people in your life bring much joy by staying connected to them.  No matter the years, no matter the geography.  I did my gig as main stage artist at the Harrodsburg Festival of Books and Arts and got to spend time with two of my favorite kids (well, they were kids when I first knew them!)  Ron Browning and Goldie Goldsmith (brother and sister).  Those of you who have been in my workshops have heard Ron play via my CD.  He is big in spirit and talent and I consider him a real gift in my life.  And Goldie is equally as awesome (and funny…:))!  I talked Goldie into letting me demo and present my book off to the side of the stage so people could get a better look at the process.  Tricia Ferrigno helped me out by asking questions during the demo portion (thanks Tricia..:)  We had a great time, I held a drawing to give away a painting and a book—and  two of the most precious people won.  I always leave experiences like this so full and grateful for all that life offers up in each moment.  Thanks to each of you that came out and braved the heat…:)) It was my treat to see your faces from my vantage point..:))
The demo (managed to get big glob of cad orange under my index finger right off the bat…)
This young lady didn’t act like the heat was a problem at all..:))–kept her cool and won my book!
I don’t think the winner of my petite painting got to keep it very long–his wife moved in and took it over pretty quickly…:)  And my helper on the right drew the winning names (face painting was cute, I was tempted to get mine done, but pretty sure it would have slid off in the heat….)
My childhood friend, Ron Browning.  Ron is a consummate jazz pianist and vocal coach (his credits include Wynonna Judd and Patti LaBelle) but the best part is he is just one incredible big- hearted guy…:)
 Take a minute and think of three people in your life that have made your life so much richer by their presence .  Feel free to share it on my blog comments.  It makes all of us richer the more we are aware of the abundance and good that is everywhere…:)))
P.S.  Eddie thinks he is on every one’s special people  list…..I’m not going to be the one to tell him any different. 
 I have to live with him you know.

    Hi Dreama..
    Just got your book delivered to my front door and have been enjoying reading it!!!
    Always love to see the color in your work and the photos are really delicious!!! Would love to actually see you create one of your gems… Ever think about doing a little U-tube like Karin Jurick has done??? She has them posted on her website and I enjoyed watching them. (for all of us too far away to see you demo in person!!)ReplyCancel
