The Walk Home

.................................Story of a sale: A couple that I've known for years recently saw this painting in an exhibit in Newnan. She looked at her husband and said, "I love this"...he said, "Well, I like it too!"..or something along those lines. They called me as soon as they got home and asked if it was for sale. What was really interesting to me is that they had never bought an original piece of art before. They stepped out of their comfort zone, I'm sure, and bought out of emotion. A sale is always great, one has to make a living, but just the fact that they connected so personally to the painting is what I'll really remember in years to come.

I've had a couple of sales like that, where I could tell someone really connected emotionally with a piece. It's a great feeling to be sure to see a piece like that walk out under someone's arm, putting a smile on their face.
