It is a very strange thing when someone you don't know buys your art work. Especially when it is someone in another town, that you will never speak with (more than likely). I have no idea where these two pieces are hanging now. I have no idea what it was that spoke to the purchaser, if it was a detail, or an idea. Maybe one of them loves blue birds. Maybe the other thought it would look good in the hallway. My hope is that it is more than just a pretty thing on the wall to them. Who knows. It is something I can wonder about, but not something I will ever know. These pieces exist out in the world, completely independent of me, and will continue to exist for years to come. I find that very odd. It makes my head hurt to analyze it too much, to think about how strange the whole process is. I am eternally grateful though- that someone enjoyed something I made enough to trade dollars for it. So, may they enjoy the artwork for years to come and hip hip hooray.

They will enjoy the real thing the longer they look atthem. We close to the artist will miss them. For they are you.
