Three cheers for the power of art!

My month-long art show at our local Dunn Bros. came down today.  It’s always a learning experience when one shows work publicly, and this month was no exception.

It was a fun and interesting month.  In addition to selling two pieces, I was asked to create a “Fibonacci Sea Otter” as a companion to “Fibonacci’s Elephant”, which was one of the pieces that sold.

The gentleman who purchased this piece wanted a companion “Sea Otter” in a similar style.  It was an anniversary gift for his wife, who has loved sea otters since she was a little girl.  After meeting with him to discuss format and style, this was the result.

One of the greatest blessings of being an artist is meeting new people and making new friends.  I was so touched by this client’s love for his wife and his zest for life.  He was also very encouraging of me as an artist, and has prompted me to think in a direction I may have overlooked if our paths hadn’t crossed!  Three cheers for the power of art!

Have a wonderful August,

Melanie
