My favorite @wintrymarket moments so far: - A lady was walking by, glanced at my Specks of Stars paintings and then stopped in her tracks and said, “These make me happy!” Which then made me happy because that was the whole point of the project!
- Several people bought presents for family and friends. As I wrapped up one painting, the person leaned in and said, “He is going to love this!” She sort of glowed a little bit when she said it, like you do when you find the perfect thing for someone. I am so thrilled that my work is going to be under the Christmas tree! - When someone bought a couple of Specks of Stars she said, “Sometimes, you find just what you needed to hear.” Yay! - One person had moved here, originally from Taiwan and wanted Idaho art to celebrate her new home. My Idaho art! - A little boy, maybe 5 or 6 (I’m not good with kid ages that are older than my kids have been), came in with his mom and picked out one of my tiny Wintry trees as thing he wanted from the whole market. Other little kids escaped their parents hands and darted over to look at my bright colors. I figure if I can capture the eyes of little ones then there’s something going right in my paintings.
- Meeting other artists that I’ve followed in Instagram and finding them just as lively in real life as their Instagram selves.
- Seeing my little guy and girl and my awesome husband popping in and out as they explored the market and then going with them for a celebratory dinner. .
