As for me, I'm really excited about a sale I made today. Not only because it's always nice to sell a painting, and not only because it's the first sale of 2014, but I'm excited for other reasons. The painting that sold today was of a Friesian horse, shown here:
If you are familiar with horse breeds you will know the Friesian horse originated in Friesland, a province in the northern part of the Netherlands. What makes this sale exciting is that it was purchased by a person visiting the United States all the way from the Netherlands. He's going to take my Friesian horse painting "home", thousands of miles from here, to the horse's country of origin! I just think that's so cool!
