You will never believe what I found in my mailbox last week.
Yes, that’s right! That’s Connie Townsend’s painting of Fergie that she did recently titled “Happily Ever After”, hanging on the wall in my new office! You may recall that I blogged about the painting after Connie sent me a photo of it. Not in my wildest dreams did I ever think it would end up owning this amazing and deeply meaningful art piece. When I opened the box I sat on the floor and cried tears of joy. I just don’t have words…
Happily Ever After takes an esteemed position as the very first art piece on my art wall in my new office. The art wall will be added to shortly but for now I am enjoying just having Connie’s painting being the sole art piece. It deserves to have the limelight for awhile. My desk is to the right of the wall and every time I look over at it I smile. Oh, and here’s a sneak peek of my new office. I do promise to post more photos soon!
The details in the painting are fantastic. I could sit and stare at it for hours.
Check out the colors. Amazing! Connie is not only an incredibly talented artist (she painted the adorable Barkalounger piece if you recall), but also an incredibly nice, and generous, and sharp, supportive human being! I am so glad to have met her virtually. Hey Connie, care to join the Sisterhood of Pet Portrait artists??
A couple of random weird shots of Fergie in front of her new painting. The shot on the right below is a trip, eh? She looks so cute in a weird, alien kind of way.
Connie captured Fergie’s personality so well it’s uncanny. I love this painting more than I have words to express.
This is one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me, and still touches me so deeply I get teared up when I think about it. Connie’s painting ‘Happily Ever After’ is now on my short list of things I would rescue if my house office was on fire. (Fergie being the very first of course!).
Thank you sincerely Connie. I can never, I just don’t, I, I, I’m at a loss for words….
