Something kind of beautiful

Wow, it’s been awhile since I posted! I just got back from an amazing trip to Costa Rica, where I loaded up on inspiration for a bunch of new paintings… more to come on those later. While I was away, I received this letter and it made me feel all warm and fuzzy. I asked the writer if I could share, and she gave me the a-ok, so without further ado, here’s something lovely to start the day:

Dear Maggie,

A few months ago, you were on campus at Mills. I bought one of your prints from the breast collection (Tip of the Iceberg? something to that effect). I sent it to this man I had been talking to in New York (we met online, long story). I told him about your art & how much I loved the “This is Love” series.

He is now my boyfriend & yesterday in the mail I received the entire set as a gift from him. It is so very special to me for so many reasons. I just wanted you to know that your art has now become a beautiful and meaningful link in our very long-distance relationship. He proudly displays the print I bought him in his home in Brooklyn and I can’t wait to frame & hang mine as well.

I hope this note finds you well. You were very nice when we met & it was important to me to tell you how your art has touched our lives. Also, I remember you had more of the ones similar to the one I purchased, but I haven’t been able to find online – do you have them listed somewhere? Someday I would like to add to his wall.

Thank you again,

I love getting letters like this. It’s great to know that my art is actually touching people’s lives and not just accenting their couch :).

Oh, and if you’re curious to know more about the “This is Love” series, it’s a collection of painting of women holding the molecular structures of the hormones bouncing around in your brain while you’re busy swooning for that someone new (or old :)). You can see the prints here.

I hope all is well in your world!
