I can't tell you how excited we are here at the library. Mandy Hamilton's Horse painting hanging in our meeting room as part of the Winners exhibition from the Fall Show snagged her a new painting commission this week.
On Monday a man stopped at the reference desk and asked me if I knew who had painted a particular painting hanging in the meeting room. When he pointed out the painting I've copied on the left here, I remembered that Mandy had attached business cards to the back of her painting and gave him one.
When I stopped by the reference desk on Wednesday our Young Adult Librarian was all excited. "Guess what gr-r-eat news I have?!" she beamed at me. She told me that Mandy had dropped by to tell us that the man had phoned her and commissioned her to do a painting for him. We're delighted for you, Mandy! Way to go!
So, I hope this will encourage all of you to hang your winning pictures here after the Spring Show! Someone remind me when that is, will you? I need to reserve the meeting room!
