The wonder of the world wide web...

...that my little paintings can be seen on the other side of the world.

A week or so ago I received a lovely request from drama teacher Russ at Grassfield High School in Chesapeake, Virginia USA!  He and his students are putting on a play about Theodosia Burr Alston (sounds like an interesting story...mysterious disappearances at sea!)  He asked if they could possibly use one of my paintings for their poster.  I wouldn't normally say yes, willy-nilly, to anyone using my artwork, but it's for a school theatre production, and as an ex-theatre student myself, I couldn't say no.  So, if you happen to be in Chesapeake on Thursday, Friday or Saturday this week, do drop in and tell them all to 'break a leg' from me, as it's a little far for me to go!  Here's the poster they designed, with my 'Waves' featured.  I'm looking forward to receiving a T-Shirt!

Hi Mermaid. What a cool T-shirt that would be. I like your mantra, "I must not forget how to fly'. I also like this one by Chesterton, "Angels fly because they take themselves lightly".Peace.

What a wonderful place the WWW is indeed, where a WOL in Texas can share the world of an artist down under, and get to know a person they otherwise would probably never have met in place they probably never would have gone to -- and I have gotten to know beautiful artwork!
