Another Special Thank you For a Special Lady!

















   This "thank you" goes out to a very special lady named Patti. She has been buying my art for a while and just recently started coming to my rose painting classes. It has been so nice getting to know her a little better, not only as a customer and student but as a friend. After our last class together was over she wanted to let me know how much my new oil painting  "Spring Bliss" meant to her and that she wanted to purchase the original. She said it represented all of her hopes and dreams of family life, and that the two eggs in the nest were symbolic of her children. I was so excited and shared with her that I had been praying about a very important business descision, and this purchase would give me the money needed to put towards it. Isn't it funny how things work out! So thankyou again sweet Patti, and I hope the painting brings you lots of peace and joy! XO Christie

  1. I wish you all the best in whatever decision you've made in business. Your paintings are absolutely gorgeous! If I could, I'd buy some, too. Congrats to your daughter on her first home. That's always exciting for a young person when they are leaving the nest.

  3. Who wouldn't want to own this original painting? I would love to own an original by you. I framed the little card I bought from you and it sits on my dresser.

  9. Christie,
    How awesome! Isn't it amazing what can happen when we wait on the Lord, instead of moving ahead and THINK we know best? (I should learn a little something from your story!) I love seeing God at work, especially when He recieives the glory. Thank you for sharing your blessing.
    See you soon, I can't wait!
    Blessings,
    Missy

  10. Oh Christie,
    This is such a great story! God gets to bless both of you at the same time! I know he gave you the talent to do what you do, and he must have given Patti the desire to want that painting at just the right time! I can't wait to see what adventure you are up to! See you soon, I have my brushes packed!

  11. It is really, really a beautiful painting Christie, so much softness and charm emanate from your art. And it is a blessing that the painting goes know in a friendly and thouthful hands and allow you to fulfil a dream, because I know so well that it is always a little sadness to take a painting away.
    Good luck for the plans et chaleureuses pensées de France!!!
