Sometimes giving it away feels better than selling it!

I drew a Bull that I saw at the fair. I decided, because it was practice with my Pan Pastels, that the first person to love it on my fan page was going to get it. My lifetime friend put a heart up when I showed it off at its ugliest stage... 

I really expected people to really give me what for! But she loved it right away. 

I had just that night to work on it because I was getting ready to head to California for a summer trip and I wanted to make sure I had it finished before then. She still lives in the small town we grew up in and where I was going to go to visit my family.

I rolled it up and packed it in the car with the kids. 

I didn't get to see her unfortunately. We both were busy and couldn't cross paths in the time I was there. However, I left it with my family and she picked it up. When she thanked me and told me how much she loved it through email, it made me "so" happy. I felt like I was a very lucky person to have a friend like her. 

I am so thankful that I am able to paint and draw well enough that I can make people smile. 

I can't imagine what I would feel like if I couldn't feel like I do today. I don't want to know.
