COMMISSION - SOLD
Last year, on July 20th, I completed a painting "Green Javelin" on a very special day, the anniversary of my mother's death. I wrote about how I "knew" the painting was finished and it was almost like a message from my mom. Today, I got a similar message.
This painting is a commission for a client in Dallas whom I met at the Cottonwood Arts Festival. He was drawn to my booth by my banner which has an image of Green Javelin. After he and his wife looked at what I had they decided to explore a much larger commission. I've been working on this painting for a few weeks sharing studies, progress shots etc. Today, I had that "feeling" this was done. I texted my client with a photo of the painting to date. I let him know that it was ready to sign with his approval. His reply was 💗💗💗💗💗. I asked it that meant yes and he said "Um Duh!".
Today is my mother's birthday. There are no coincidences - only God Winks. My guardian angel guided me once again on timing.
This painting is named Ballena Azul- or Blue Whale. The agave is the Agave Ovatofolia - Whale's Tongue. She's off to the framer tomorrow. We'll make that Christmas delivery early!!
