MEETING DANIEL MERRIAM

What an amazing night I had on Saturday. I went to an artist's reception for Daniel Merriam, one of my all time FAVORITE artists. The gallery had every inch of its walls covered in his paintings. What a treat for me and for anyone who enjoys his work! I saw my favorite called, "EVER AFTER" up close and personal, WOW!

I got to meet him an talked with him for a while. I have to say I was a bit star-struck and too embarressed to have him sign my post card to me, so I had him put my brother's name on the card! (he has been of fan of his work as well so he will definately love it). He says he puts in long hours, about 12 hours a day, when he's on a deadline. It shows, his body of work seems endless!

I'm sure most of you have seen his work but if not visit his website and help yourself to some wonderful inspiring and fantastic images! Have fun!
