A Loss to the Online eBay Art Community

One of the eBay greats passed away on Wednesday. Barbara Haukenberry was my art patron this summer. She shared her extensive knowledge to help me establish my online business for no other reason than that she loved art and artists. And she would tease and say "I get to ask this or that because I discovered you."

I loved her sense of humor and her emails and she would sometimes write to me several times a day. She mentored me, gave me feedback and advice... and she was usually right.

Barbara was an animal lover who had a menagerie of pets, including several Bengal cats and parrots. She collected animals like she collected art - in mass quantities and she knew everything about the subject.

She was a great teacher to me and I am deeply saddened by her passing. I will miss her letters, her advice, but most of all, I will miss her friendship.

New Fine Art

I've been feverishly... (well maybe not feverishly, but warm to the point of sweat) working on some new pieces for a winter show and to send to galleries. Here are a few of them and I'll be scanning/posting the other new paintings soon. SO CHECK BACK!!

More Photos from Nicole's Brian Vanderark party

Clearly her photos were more awesome than mine...
If you want to have your memories frozen in awesomeness:

And not to be a total stalker, but COME ON!
I should've had Nicole take my shot for me so it wouldn't be completely blurry.
