THE FAMILY TREE:
"THEY ALL CAN'T BE NATURAL REDHEADS ... CAN THEY?
24 x 30" SOLD
This was a recent commission piece. I had done one last year in this style and it sold through a wonderful Seasonal Gallery that carries my work. This year, the client came back and ordered another one for a Family member that had seen the original piece and wanted one 'just like it'. I thought they meant 'style wise' and it wasn't until I finished this one that I found out from the Gallery owner that "No, they meant 'just. like. it.' Fortunately, when the Clients Family member saw the new piece they loved it. That was a 'Whew!' moment. :/
You might remember this Piece. I posted it a couple of weeks ago here on my blog. It was part of the Studio tour that I recently did. I didn't tell you about the actual sale though and I thought you might enjoy hearing about it 'just in case' you might be able to relate. The Piece went home with a member of a very prominent Hollywood family whom I did not even recognize until AFTER she left. I didn't handle the actual sale so I was momentarily oblivious. The sad thing is, she was actually in my home about 10 years ago as part of a Show I was having for a mutual friend who is a Photographer. (Long story). So, has she changed that much, or ... is my memory just that bad now.
Somehow, I feel it's the latter. :(
Have a great Weekend!
