I'm pretty sure that my thirst for purchasing original artwork is unquenchable. Or maybe I'm just new at it so it's very exciting? Either way, I bought another today at our little sidewalk art show. I don't have it yet or I would take a picture for you all to see. I left it there so they could put a wire hangy thing on the back of it. I am so excited about it! It is a really beautiful oil painting of an owl. Remember... one of my favorite animals? This will be the first oil painting to hang in my home. I'm kindof a watercolor girl, but this owl called to me and I had to have it! ("Who?" it called. Ha ha!! I know, I know... I'm a nerd. I just can't help it sometimes!)
I also got lucky enough to get a freebie charcoal/chalk portrait of my Ella. It's awesome and I already framed it and have it hanging on my wall! She was so serious while she sat there to be sketched. I will take a picture of that too.
Just FYI, the artist that did both the owl and the sketch of Ella also happens to be the teacher at The Creative Institute that I raved about in a recent post. He's a very talented individual. I saw the owl picture while I was in class. I've been thinking about it ever since and when I saw it today at the art show I REALLY wanted it. I asked the price and it was actually very reasonable! I couldn't resist! So, I now have two John P. Hart originals! I'm thrilled!
