On August 20th the CPSA International Exhibit came to an end and I had been waiting impatiently for my original drawing of "Caught Up In the Moment"to be returned at the front door by the UPS man. I started tracking it on Monday and noticed that it was due here on Wednesday, September 1.
When it finally came I noticed the box was to my surprise in very good condition. Although when I picked it up it seemed light. At first I thought my strength training was paying off. Hahahahaha! (**cough**) But as I opened it up I knew I wouldn't find my painting in there.
Since I hadn't received a phone call, e-mail, or snail mail notifying me of a sale I assumed the worst but kept my hopes up that someone fell in love with it and purchased it.
After a quick phone call to the Art Museum of Los Gatos where it was hanging I was informed that my piece was indeed SOLD and the check would be in the mail soon. Yippee!! For the next hour I was doing the happy dance around the house with my husband, teenagers, and three little ones I nanny just shake their heads with embarrassment.
I have many things to be thankful for at the conclusion of the CPSA exhibit. First and foremost, my family who supported me last year when the stress was turned up and my mother who seems to know me better than I know myself and said "this was my time" to take control of my life and "just do it". Then there's the true and many friends I have made at the convention who support each other with love and laughter. LIFE IS GOOD!
