Hi Heather, My 14 year old son is on the YMCA (Biddeford) team. He is there every night. From the day your paintings went up, he has been talking about The Sleeper. I have dragged him around to museums, but is was always that, a drag for him. I don’t know what is it about that painting, but he finds it absolutely intriguing.
Tonight, he took his hard earned lawn mowing money with him and bought it. He is so happy.
I feel like my heart is going to burst. That is such a beautiful story, or a beautiful real thing. My 9 year old is having trouble falling asleep and I told her about this, she’d like to know your son’s name. My email is heather at serenebabe dot net if you wouldn’t mind letting me know his name.
I am honored. Deeply, deeply honored. Thank you for sharing the story with me, and, thank your son for supporting a local artist (and mother). :-)
Would you mind if I told people about this? Although… I don’t know if you’ll get this message. I’ll try to reach you through the Y.
