Sharon and I went over to the Rockport Center for the Arts for a “Gallery Talk” and reception. There’s a new exhibit and we wanted a chance to meet the artists.
Let me back up a bit. Last Sunday was Exchange Day at the RCA. Members are allowed to bring in a piece every month to be exhibited…and HOPEFULLY sold…in the Member’s Gallery. I chose this image…”Enchanted Oaks”. It’s definitely something different from me. This image had been printed on a 16×24 canvas. I made this image about a month ago when all of the wildflowers were in bloom. The oak trees here have been windswept forever….and their gnarled growth reflects that constant battle.
Sharon came up to me and said that a couple was leaving the RCA with “Enchanted Oaks”. We went outside and met this nice couple. I introduced myself as the artist, and we struck up a short conversation. They are locals, and she had REALLY enjoyed seeing this image. They said it “screamed of Rockport”…my EXACT intention. He purchased it as a Mother’s Day gift for her!
I LOVE to meet the people who buy my art. It really doesn’t happen too often, but when it does…
