A special message from a dedicated patron.

Every so often I get a lovely email from a patron who reaches out to tell me how much they appreciate their Meg Black painting. The other day I received such a message from Lisa, a vice president at Decor Furnishings.  Here is what she had to say:
Hi Meg, it’s Lisa T! I had to show you this piece that I bought from you so many years ago 20 or 24 years ago. I’ve just had it re-framed and it is absolutely spectacular. I had to send it to you. I hope you have a great day.
It’s from Business Art and Frame my friend Maryanne did the framing of it. She framed a Tuscany painting that a local person had commissioned you to create for her  a few years ago.
It is still one of my all-time favorite pieces of artwork, Meg. You are an absolute gifted artist, it is evident to me you put so much love behind your work that it oozes out of each piece you make.
I am so glad that I have more than one of your pieces. It totally anchors each and every room I have them in. Many blessings to you, thank you for sharing your talent with all of us. Hope to see you soon. Lisa

I want to thank Lisa for taking the time to contact me and for Maryanne at Business Art and Frame for doing such a plum job on the frame.  #Grateful

Creating opportunities for business: a podcast about my latest commission at Topsfield Town Hall.

I am pleased to share this podcast by Alyson Stanfield of Art Biz success.  Alyson Stanfield interviewed me about my recent commission for #topsfieldtownhall.  In this podcast, I share how I created an opportunity to create-and secure funding for-public art when no funding for art was included in this major renovation project. If this sounds familiar to artists reading this post-no money for art!-then please listen to the podcast and leave a comment.  Bottom line: be proactive and reach out to prospective donors.  There are people out there who will support you.  It’s yours for the asking!
