The Potter-ready to sign!

I worked on "The Potter" more yesterday and feel it is ready to sign. As I was working on it, it kind of reminded me of God. Well, God's a potter ya know! It's actually a painting of a Texas potter. It will be interesting to see if anyone recognizes him.

A Very Nice Surprise!

I had a very nice surprise when I checked my mail today. There was a larger than average size envelope which I couldn't open quickly enough. Inside was a photo and a short letter that really made my day! So much so that I wanted to share it with you. The letters reads as follows:

Dear Gaye:

I know it took some time but enclosed is a copy of the photo when I purchased "Lillibeth". It is now hanging in a favorite spot in my home-I love it as much as when I saw it in your studio.

Thank you again-I am truly enjoying your talent.

Sincerely,

Carol E.

I must say that Carol made me every bit as happy as I made her the day she came into the gallery. She shared the most wonderful story of why this painting was special to her and I knew it was going to the perfect home! Carol, if you are reading this, thank you for taking the time to send the photo and for your sweet letter.

God bless, Gaye

Prickly Pear Cactus

This is what I think is probably the true "Yellow Rose of Texas".
