Signed, Framed, Delivered: It’s Yours!

David and Mariam, the portrait's subjectMy wife and I delivered my commissioned portrait of Mariam directly to her place of work yesterday. Rather than having me bring the painting to her office, which she felt would certainly lead to unwanted ribbing from her already tease-prone coworkers, she met us in the lobby, complimented the portrait, asked for a little stack of my business cards and walked directly out to the parking garage to sequester the painting from prying eyes. She later wrote that she took a few trusted friends to the garage gallery and showed them, which garnered the art work still more compliments. Note: This painting was painted in its entirety live on the Dave the Painting Guy Show.
