Well, this was a very successful and happy watercolor society show for me.  Not only did my painting, Plant Series: Morning Light, win First Place in the show, but I had a very nice couple contact me to buy the painting!  YAY!  
They even said it was First Place in their minds, too :)  

And no impulse buy, either.  They came to the show yesterday, took a photo of it, measured it, went home and made sure it would fit and look good in their home where they wanted to place it.

We met this afternoon when the gallery opened and they purchased it and seemed very happy.  We talked a bit about inspiration and I was so pleased - it seems Morning Light is going to a very good home.

I won't share their names - privacy issues, but aren't they a good-looking (and obviously quite discerning) couple? :)

Thanks so much!  
I hope to see you both at future shows.

Overall, 4 paintings sold during the show's run = congratulations to all the winners (see a previous post for their names and photos of their paintings), and congratulations to those who sold something this time!

And now, back to reality and my bee buzz buzzzzzzz.
