CORPORATE: (Many corporate consultants and most galleries will not tell artists where their work is being specifically placed for fear of being circumvented--sadly a problem for a select minority. We are told its for "a spa" or "small corporation" or "healthcare facility", for example, without details.)
J. D. Edwards
MOST SPECIAL PERSONALLY
*First notification of one of my pieces being purchased by a terminally ill gentleman who "felt a peace" from my work.
*March 2008. First living artist to ever be shown in the "Masters Room" of the Camera Obscura Gallery. It was the oldest fine art gallery in the country with a direct history with so many of the greats. (It was closed in 2011 by its 92 year old owner and founder, Hal Gould.)
*Walking into the hospice to say "goodbye" to my mother and seeing my work on the wall.
