Hoooray! I’m having a portrait of my great-aunt (in her 80′s) standing in front of her vegetable garden. I can’t wait!!

Too bad I’m so art-paralyzed–the permanence and seriousness of “real” art makes me worry and then do nothing at all!

also, i love that it also shows him how many people really feel like they missed out on an opportunity, not just to buy one, but SEVERAL of his paintings.

(luckily, i got in yesterday morning. now i’m still deciding which photo. i may send two and let Paul and Jordan choose. hee.)

He passed away and I would love to have his memory on our wall.

I too, would go into a burning building for it.

And yes, I’m drooling as I write this.

I had no idea you guys were related… how would I know that anyway?! I read Mighty Girl and she talked about the project as well. I literally just sent an email to your sister to see if my photo would qualify.

It is a picture of my two girls. It is a closeup of only their hands. Jane (age 6 at the time) has her finger out and Eleanor (age 2 weeks) is holding it. This is the kind of picture I would run in to a burning building to save. It means the world to me.
