My family and I were at a gallery opening in Dubai during my first year in residence at the Raffles Hotel. The gallery invited us back to their opening a couple nights later. We got all dressed up as a family & attended the opening. We didn't know anyone, but walked around & looked a the art. Within a few minutes of arriving, I met a very friendly man & as e got chatting I asked him what he did.
Him: "Im the logistics company that ships and receives the art to and from he gallery." We talked awhile longer & I asked for his number.
Me: "I know I'm going to need to call you for worldwide shipping."
Sure enough, a month later, I was back home in Canada & I received an email from a man who saw my paintings I had left in Dubai on exhibition who wanted to purchase 5 pieces. I immediately called my new friend who worked for the gallery & he was thrilled for me that I had sold 5 paintings to a prominent collector in Dubai. H took care of shipping them & delivering them directly to my new collector's doorstep.
My new friend took a photo of the mountains and sent it to me. He said, if ever this photo inspires you to paint, I would like to see what you come up with. His photo is so beautiful, I know it will inspired many more paintings. Each time I create a painting from the same photo reference, it is amazing to me how different the painting comes out every time. This photo was taken on the India side of the Himalayas.
