Received an email about a painting from the past yesterday. A watercolor purchased at an art festival in '91, not long after we'd moved to the NOLA area. I was told that during the clearing out of her Katrina flooded home, she pulled the painting out of a pile and attempted to remove it from the frame but most of the image stuck to the glass. Now that they have their new home in order, she was hoping I would have another in that series, understanding that I'd moved on to other types of images. I looked up the painting and am certain that I can come up with something similar. I told her it might take a bit of time, but I would try. My nandinas are in bloom and it's a wonderful subject to paint... I'll find the time.
