This is a fun story about a commission and an inspiration. Audrey and Lee met me at the St. Petersburg Fine Art Show in February of 2018. They commissioned me to create a small wall mural for their upstate New York bathroom. About 5 weeks later the piece was finished and they came to pick it up. It so happens I was heading to Texas a few art shows, so I had a lot of new work hanging that I was about to load into my art show van, including 'Bodhi Tree by the River'. Lee and Audrey looked at the piece, glanced at one another and asked me about it. I explained the inspiration, size and price.
They asked if they could buy that instead of the smaller commission and hang it in the main room of their New York home. Of course, I said! We laughed and loaded Bodhi Tree into their SUV for the drive back to New York. That was a fun surprise for all of us. Now Bodhi Tree by the River looks right at home in Averill Park, NY. Thanks again, Audrey & Lee!
