Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets:)

Meet Lola Rae. Because whatever Lola wants, Lola gets. She and her dad, Steve Pyke, came by a few weeks ago and she did a painting while Steve and I chatted. Steve's an accomplished photographer and has shot celebrities, politicians and a world of life with his 2 1/4 camera for the New Yorker and other clients worldwide. Click here for his site.

On Steve and Lola's first visit Steve left a package of photographs, which luckily, had his name and address on them. By end of day, having not been picked up, I decided to deliver them to their house on Hudson Street. Arriving and ringing the bell, Steve was surprised. He hadn't even realised he was missing his photographs - but might have later:)

Since then Steve and Lola have been back twice, with Lola always taking the lead and dragging daddy to the painting studio in the park. And in the last year, she's not our only return painter. There are many, and many who come back to find their work in the smallest Chelsea gallery in New York.

Thank you Lola and Steve. You gotta love what I do when you have patrons like this:)
