My own island

So this past Tuesday was my son's birthday and I was so busy cooking up a storm, wrapping gifts and toasting him (and myself) that I neglected to see who Tiny Showcase was going to unveil for their print of the week. I was so wrapped up in the festivities and already exhausted from my week that I didn't get back on the computer until the following morning.

When I did check in, I couldn't believe my eyes. As soon as I saw the image, it didn't surprise me one bit that the print was sold out, but when I realized that I'd never get to live with this image myself, the core of my heart ached. It's not often that I have such a physical and emotional response to a piece of art, but this was one I couldn't get over.

In a heart broken panic, I tracked down the artist, Nathan Abels and Ivar Zeile from Plus+ Gallery - asking (with fingers crossed) if they had any other prints. After many emails back and forth, I now have a new friend named Nathan and am the soon-to-be proud owner of the original, "Island".

I am a very happy lady.

... and hopefully have learned my lesson not to miss another TS print.
