Today was a blur of activity and excitement, in the midst of which I found time to paint a rose. But, the most notable thing that happened was something that’s been in the works for a while.
I’m going to start 2020 in a very exciting way – traveling to NYC with my mentor John Ross Palmer and some of his closest friends and collectors to celebrate his birthday! Also, we’re all getting NYC commissions by John. Yes, I’m treating myself to a very special painting by my favorite artist, and it will have the Chrysler Building on it – among other things.
Ryan put together the most amazing agenda for us, and he also got us some very thoughtful gifts. And guess what? One of the gifts all the collectors involved in the John Ross Palmer NYC 2020 commissions received is a copy of my first novel, Dogs with Bagels! I got to sign and personalize the books, and I’m really excited about their new adventures in the company of John’s collectors!
