Woman Waiting...The lost painting

It's October 14, 2007. I had hung a few paintings at the Painted Bean, a coffee house, in downtown Grafton, Wisconsin; Woman Waiting is one of four paintings, the other three are Cowboy Standing, Sunrise over the Pond and Be Somebody. It's so cool to have your work hanging in a public place where people gather and enjoy art with their cup of joe. I don't expect anything to come about of it but then the phone rings and Woman Waiting sold! My very first sale ~BOOM, all of a sudden van gogh and I are tied for the number of paintings sold in our lifetimes! It sold for $185 to a lady named Kathy O'Connor. Very validating and very exciting.

I like to think of this as a lost painting and that one day it will be significant. I always liked it; an attractive woman looks intently toward the viewer with a small white vase to her left holding one funky red rose. She's very mysterious. I can see it still but at the time, no picture of it. So Kathy, if you still have that Woman Waiting, I'm all ears (and eyes).
