Two of my favorite artists are Cezanne and Degas - all of their work is just beautiful in my eyes. And imitation is the greatest compliment, right? I try to get the feel of their style by doing much of my own work with one of them in mind.
A couple weeks ago, two of my favorite paintings were sold and now reside in Virginia. They were both done with the style of Cezanne in mind. While I was sad to see two of my favorites go out the door, I was thrilled to receive such a sweet note from the buyer. Notes like this make it a little easier to let go of a painting you've worked hard on!
"Greetings, Nan and great thanks for the gorgeous paintings- which just arrived and are super! You are very talented. They look like Cezanne's! Plus- you are an artist in every way- I liked your presentation, wrapping and key, too! All best to you"
Now, THAT is the beginning of a wonderful Saturday!
Thanks for looking!
