15 minutes of fame

Currently Alex is having to spend a lot of time making cards, as there seems to be a run on them? It’s very nice to know they are appreciated. One of the cards that sells consistently is based on the sketch above. The card is called Old Friends.

A couple of years ago we were in Criccieth when we saw this couple on the beach. They were the only ones on the beach as it was a fresh spring day. They were obviously intent on enjoying themselves and the scene touched both Alex and I. So I got out the sketch book and they were none the wiser that;

I did a painting of them that was sold to a couple in Holland.
They have had countless cards sent everywhere with them on it.

It was Andy Warhol that said, “Everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes”,
So today Alex is making more cards and I have been sketching.
