Marilyn Graziano holding her Bonita reproduction
True story!...I met artist Chris Volpe yesterday for a "Painter Play date" plein air outing in New Castle, New Hampshire. When I arrived, I saw two artist painting by the ocean; Marilyn Graziano and Barbara L. Clark. I introduced myself and when Marilyn heard my name, she pulled out a postcard from her paintbox that had one of my oil paintings on it. I couldn't believe the coincidence! I was shocked!..but the plot thickened..she went off to her car and returned with a painting reproduction she had done of my oil painting titled "Sunday" from the postcard...I was at a genuine loss for words...Chris Volpe exclaimed, "Wow, dude, your famous!". I'm definitely not famous but I was genuinely touched, moved and flattered by this random act of wowness. For a few moments Marylin Graziano, a fellow paisan from East Boston made me feel really good about the work. Thank you Marilyn
(p.s. Marilyn, if you read this, please feel free to email me privately at firstname.lastname@example.org, we would love to get together and paint together sometime with Barbara and yourself).
