Artists Need to Stick Together

I've never met a door-to-door artist . . . until last week.

With a handful of her own original work--and a willing sister to help
collect money--this budding entrepreneur showed up and offered me a deal I couldn't refuse.

You see she's been making prints on her home computer. Since I love dogs, this one caught my eye.

She was asking one dollar. Unfortunately, I didn't have that amount readily available--
and she doesn't take credits cards. Luckily she was in the mood to strike a deal. 

Eighty-five cents later and  the dog print was mine. 

The artist was quick to inform me that it's her policy policy NOT to sell her originals. 

Those are sold exclusively to her grandmother. 

It was fun to get a new print, and to chat with this talented young girl.
We artists have to stick together. The dog print now has a prominent place in my office; 
he's good company for the dogs I'm working on for a new project.
