I finally have some time to post a little more, and revisit some subjects I wanted to elaborate on right here on the blog. It's a gray day in denver, after the Cherry Creek Arts Festival. I'm taking the day to rest and recoup after a blur of travel, set-up, take-down, show, sell, smile, shake, greet, pout, sink, eat, drink, laugh, cry, sleep, wake, coffee, hydrate, stand-up, sit-down, lucky-hard-work madness!!
The Red Balloon Painting in this pic was sold to a wonderful couple in Des Moines, and I just have to point out how sweet it was... I met them, and told them the story of the Red Balloon french film, and my own red balloon valentines story, we shared in our affinity of its perfect round red friendship symbolism, and they decided to purchase the painting. They said they would come back the next morning to pick it up, which gave me time to box it up neatly and write a thank you card. The next day was a beautiful sunny and windy hopeful day, and I was sitting in my tent, when they walk up, happily hosting a sweet little red balloon as a parting gift for me!!! It was the sweetest thing a customer has ever done for me. Thank you Steve and Karen! I hope your red balloon brings years of happy lightness.
