Just recently I was able to reconnect with a client of mine. As many of my clients do, they become more than that to me. They become my friends. I have found that the paintings create these bonds that is indescribable. I find myself sharing stories, laughs, joy, and sometimes tears. I get to know where people come from, and where their journey’s have lead them. Each of my paintings do tell a story. And when that painting finds it’s new owner it is as if the story finally has it’s ending.
I wanted to share this lovely story through the words of this beautiful lady, Hollie. I had the pleasure of meeting her entire family in Chicago when I was at a show. I will never forget this!
“Every day I see this gorgeous painting. It’s hanging in my house. It is by FAR the best gift I’ve ever received. Not only because it’s from the most amazing artist @suzeford – her work is like none other! But it also has such a beautiful story.
I saw it a few years ago at the One of A Kind Show here in Chicago, and fell in love with it, but I knew Christmas was coming and I wasn’t there to buy things for myself. I left that day thinking about that piece for hours.
The next day, I found myself without kids (wow!), so I ended up going back to the show to see it one more time, and it was gone! I told Suze (the artist) how sad I was and couldn’t believe someone bought it!
A few weeks later on my birthday morning, I woke up to this painting in my bedroom!! My husband heard how much I loved this artist at the show, and secretly went there and asked her what I liked and he bought for me for my birthday. I bawled like a baby and said, “YOU were the one who bought it!!!” The story still makes me cry! What a guy!
But the point to this is – once you see Suze’s works, you will fall in love with them! They are so beautiful and make you happy inside!!! You will NEED one in your life!”
