Winners of Giveaway!!! New News!

Working on a New Painting

 I guess I will tell everyone what my news is. I was contacted by Hallmark!! I guess they are looking for some new art and they would like to use some of my art for there greeting cards.  Soooo excited. I signed the first contract.  Just the first step.  And hopefully they can use some of my art.   EEEEEEeeeeee pinch me!
I did not want to say anything until I signed something and I got my W9!

Very excited about it!

 My Father In Law died in January.  He had been ill for some time so I would sit with him. He and I would talk about my art.  He was a great business man and a true believer in me. He kept on saying to me " You need to contact Hallmark".  Well I kind of just thought " You don't just contact Hallmark.  They have there own in house artist" I would sit with him and he kept saying that my art would be perfect for Greeting Cards.  He always thought Big. (I believe there is a lesson there)  In the back of my head I have this feeling that he had something to do with this.  Charley is watching out for me.  I really truly think he had something to do with it!  Things like this happen to me all the time!  I'm not kidding! I have always felt it. 
It's all about the Energy!!!
