One of my greatest pleasures is being informed where my paintings end up. I often receive emails from galleries or new painting 'adoptees' with a photo of the piece in its new space along with notes on how the patron has connected with the work. That is such a treasure.
Paintings have found new homes in every province across the country from Victoria to Toronto, a few in Alaska, all the way down through Canada and the United States to South America, and even in Europe with several finding their new families in places such as Germany, England and Scotland.
It is such a great honour not only to be supported in my work in this way, but to know that what I do touches others. I have no doubt that the deep connection I have with my work is felt by others, too. It's as if a small part of my story, my challenges and triumphs over them, can encourage someone else.
And as far And this little guy? He's on his way to Phoenix. :)
