Good Things and Waiting

Yay! In the two weeks that the show has been up I've sold three paintings.

That's been good.

Thing is that the third one was sold to a couple that John and I are friends with, and the wife is undergoing her second round of chemotherapy for cancer. And they wrote me to tell me that they really were amazed by all the paintings, and they bought the one for her birthday. That through my art, I'd given them a brighter day.

That... made me cry, for all the right reasons, I think.

My art mentor said, "There. That's why we share. Now you know you've affected someone with your art for the better."

I thought I was just playing with paint and paper and making pretty things... being able to provide them a bit of happiness when they needed it is far better.
