Will work for food...
Cat food that is. I went to Pet Depot to pick up a check for my first commission. The owner didn't have the store checks with her.
One of the clerks for whom I painted a "pleine air" of her deceased beloved dog during the 'meet the artist' event on March 21st said she was able to not cry for the first time yesterday when she saw her painting of her precious golden retriever.
She asked me if I would paint one for her sister whose dog Murphy just passed away at 15 years old. She said this dog was 'her baby'. I said of course and she asked how much I wanted for it. I know she does this job at the pet store for the love of animals not money. I said she could buy a bag of food for my cats Meatball and Sami. So paintings like this go easy because of all the love I see in this face. I'm going to deliver it today and pick up my check for the prior commission. Things have a way of working out don't they?
