All That Glitters....


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.

What a wonderful painting! And even made more wonderful, because of the feelings in invokes of your childhood for you. Every time you pass that picture you will smile...

The fact that this little painting stirred such a wonderful memory for you, well, that's the reason I paint. I'm so happy this one belongs to such a special person. You're a jewel.
