I love when kids of all ages really look at and comment on my art… it may sound corny, but it helps give me hope for our future! Sometimes, someone will go beyond that and really surprise me though. I recently had an exchange with a new fan that started with an email that said, “Hello. I really like your art and wanted to say ‘good job’.” I replied with my usual thank-you email and encouraged them to sign up for my email list or to Like me on Facebook where I post occassional art specials for folks. I love the repy I got back:
I can’t get any of your artwork because I’m only 10.
Well, if this young art fan is able to get her parent’s permission, I’ll be sending her one of my flapjacks to get her collection started – you’re never too young!!
