As a member of the Hollywood Arts Council, I was participating in an outdoor exhibit. Just before noon, a little boy came running down the sidewalk, headed toward this picture. He stared up at it, his eyes dancing merrily. Finally, I said, "You like that?" When he nodded, I said, "Well, I'll tell you what. If it hasn't sold by the end of the day, it's yours." He took off running and returned a moment later with his parents who were certain he had misunderstood. I assured them that he hadn't. About five minutes before the closing of the show, the little boy came racing toward the painting, shouting, "It's still here, Momma!" And so, that little boy of perhaps nine, became the owner of an original painting with a value of perhaps $1200.00. I can't remember when I was that happy after an art show. Successful beyond measure!
