Mission: acquisition!

Much as I had done in this previous post, I wanted to take a moment to gush about yet more recent art acquisitions in the (very lucky) Feissel household! Yay! The week before last John and I acquired two pieces from two of the artists from the Charleston, South Carolina “Women Painting Women” expedition last November – one is a sketch done of me during that trip by Linda Tracey Brandon, an Arizona-based painter:

Me, all happy with Linda's sketch

…the other is a painting also done on that trip by Alabama painter Terry Strickland, of the beach behind our rented house on Sullivan’s Island:

 It’s so great to have these pieces by these amazing artists, and to have the memories of that great week in SC!!! Booyeah!!!!
