The Beachcombers Art Show this past weekend in South Padre Island, Texas, was almost a disappointing event, sales-wise. I did meet some lovely ladies who are members of one of the art leagues in the area, and want me to give a workshop next year. I'm excited about getting a new workshop on my schedule! But Sunday evening was rapidly approaching with no sales in sight... Until one distinguished gentleman engaged me in conversation about the impressionists and their mastery of light, then came back with his 'account manager' and purchased this one of my three largest paintings. Thank you, Alexander, for making my weekend!!
