Did you miss them?
I loved the short time that Gladys, Gabby, and Percy hung on my wall the first time! What a treat to have them back for a while!
My relationship with these guys began the first time I saw their photograph on a blog that I follow.
I had the best time painting them. They practically talked to me while I was working on them. Then they just made me laugh when they hung on my wall. But, alas... someone bought them...
Imagine my delight when I received this e-mail:
Hi! My name is Rebekah and my mom is Renee from the blog Southern Gal.
My family (my husband and two little girls) are in the middle of a huge
transition. It is our dream to have a little homestead of our own, but for right
now that dream has to be put on hold. The three goats you painted so beautifully
are mine, Gabby, Gladys, and Percy. Tomorrow Percy leaves us as we prepare for a
temporary move into town. His "girls" will follow soon. I am quite emotional
over this, not just because animals have a way of ripping your heart apart, but
because of how him leaving causes the lifestyle change we are about to make to
hit home. Over the next few years, David and I are planning to be very frugal and saving money to buy land so we can build our
own little homestead. But right now we have to leave behind our goats, chickens,
bees, and garden.
To get to the point, I want more than anything else I
am planning for my new home to hang this painting of our three goats in a
special place. I just feel like it would help us remember this sweet time with
our very first farm animals and motivate us to realize our dream. I know the
painting sold, but could you paint the goats again? You did an amazing job. We
would cherish it forever.
Now, what could I say? YES!
I hope Rebekah and her family have a big smile when they see "Three Silly Goats Gruff II" in person.
