One thing that I don’t often get to enjoy is seeing my ‘children’ settled in their new home. Occasionally I will take artwork to a customers house to see whether it works in the location they’re considering, but usually I say goodbye to my offspring when they are placed into a box at an art show. I am particularly overjoyed to see this watercolor diptych in their new frames and their new room as it’s in Texas – and I’ve never met their new ‘Dad’ face to face.
As they’re framed pieces I shipped them unframed and they were a little while before the new frames were chosen, but now here they are above the sofa. It was also a very interesting way that the sale came to be. Having ‘met’ their new owner as his client for some online business, during a phone call he mentioned he liked my work and had this place that needed some new art, and described the location and colors of the room. I recommended this watercolor diptych which wasn’t on my website, and we exchanged some pics of the artwork and the room. Turned out it was just the thing – the right feeling for the location, the right size and the right colors.
