My COVID Story
It seems artists are vulnerable to unseen situations that can place them in unusual circumstances. During this pandemic, I was contacted by patrons who wished to purchase artwork to add to their collection. I was thrilled and anxious to accommodate them. Fortunately for me, they had visited my website and picked out works that I had available. It was a unique presentation as I delivered the work to the outside of their home wearing the mandatory mask to make the delivery. I left the works for them to try out with instructions to let me know if they liked any of them to contact me and I would return with my mask on to pick them up. Well, it was the very next day that I heard back from them and they were thrilled with the largest work shown here. They chose a 30 X 30” encaustic with gold and silver leaf that I had framed in a beautiful bronze wood floating frame. This painting they shared was, “perfect for their new home” and I was to pick up the other two outside their home and they would leave a check attached to one of the pieces.
I am excited to now be considered a curbside artist and looking forward to more unusual art placement opportunities. Of course, I am also looking forward to the end of this devastating virus and wish everyone who has suffered from this virus, comfort, and hope for the future. Also, thank you so much to these patrons who saw fit to support the arts during this difficult time.
