So I'm right in the middle of trying to aquire a painting by Amy Sillman who I personally think is one of the best and brightest painters working today and I think things are going smoothly when the gallerist out of the blue sends me an email where she apologizes and says unfortunately she has sold the painting. I'm like "What!!" I was bummed out for week I figured now that Amy was on the cover of Artforum it was going to be pretty hard to get that chance again.
Well, to make a long story longer tonight Mrs. OC Art Blog gave me a Valentines present and guess what it was?? Yep, The Amy Sillman painting. I'm a very happy camper. Special thanks to Susanne Vielmetter for helping Mrs. OC Art Blog pull off a sweet one. I had no clue. Happy Valentines everybody....especially to mine.
Here's the painting:
