A couple of weeks ago I bid on a original painting by my friend and artist Jacqui Faye, she does a painting a day and sells her work on eBay . The piece I loved was titled "All That Glitters", I loved it because it reminded me of my mother's dresser when I was a little girl; all of her perfume bottles lined up on top. I used to peek up on top of that dresser and admire all the different shapes of the bottles and swoon over those scents. Well, I won it and it was at my doorstep yesterday when I got home from work, it felt like Christmas, only I knew what I was getting. ;)
The detail of "All That Glitters" is very impressive. Putting that much detail is usually reserved for much larger work. I love how she takes pride in every brush stroke and her growth as a painter is evident in every work she completes. I am really excited I won this piece, it's my first real piece of art I have ever owned, not counting my Wallace Nutting photos. Not a reproduction or a print but real art.
Thanks Jacqui, I am thrilled to have your piece and I can't wait to find it the perfect place on my walls.
