Just what I've been waiting for ...

These arrived on my door step a few days ago.
28 beautiful Premier Gallery Profile Canvases
to make my big dreams come true.
Big news:
I received a commission of
28 original mixed media collages
from Sharp Hospital. 

They are creating a new garden at one of their sites
and they want new art work for it. 

I submitted my work back in May 
and didn't hear anything. 
When I spoke with them
a couple of weeks ago 
they ordered 28 paintings.

This means I can buy paint!
This means I can get prints of several
new paintings made for my etsy shop.
This means I can enter the Little Italy Art Walk in the spring,
which has been a dream.
This means I don't have to borrow
from  our family funds to support my art addiction habit.
This means so much.

It couldn't have come at a busier time,
but that's the way these things always go, right?

P.S. Thanks for all of the airplane advice.
Jack + I survived 10 hours of travel with new toys (thanks for the tip)
DVDs, lots of running everywhere (thank you Tyler),
 and of course, lots and lots of snacks!
