I painted this while listening to "Greetings from Asbury Park," the Bruce Springsteen classic. This big (for me ) 24 x 18 " palette knife floral piece was custom-framed at Pope's in Charlotte, exhibited in a juried show, then displayed in my home studio and then hung silently in our guest room. Since November, it's been at Green Rice Gallery in Charlotte. Last Friday while husband and I were snowed in at home, and thought everyone else was, too, some people were evidently out at the gallery crawls. There was a poetry reading event at Green Rice, and the wife of a poet took a liking to the painting--and they bought it and took it home! And that is the story of Greetings.
