This painting, one of the first large canvases I attempted, sold this week at Gathering Grounds. This canvas probably held the most sentimental value for me--mainly because I think that it reflects more of the "child" in my personality, the child that loves old airplanes. I knew that I ran the risk of losing this piece when I put it up for sale but I felt like I would be okay with it as long as it went to someone who could appreciate it. Well, someone DID buy it and not only did they bbuy this one, they bought another of the pieces that had a lot of sentimental value--and, as it turns out, he's a good bloke with a little girl about Leo's age! So, anyway, that makes it a little easier to part with.

James...Congrats!!!! major good news--as hard as it is to let go -- do what i have to do--remember its your bread and butter --and be grateful each time a painting leaves with a buyer---be sure to start now gathering names (and addresses) of each buyer and what they bought(get e-mails if they will give them to you)--believe me--you will be glad you did in about 35 years or so. you can laugh at that but mark my words, james. you will be glad.
keep those names separate as original owners. again--my congrats... aunt marg

Man, it's been a while since I've traipsed across these here parts -- very sorry about that! Anyway, CONGRATS to your sales, James! You deserve it.

Best of luck in the new year!
