I must be out of my mind...
I can't believe it, but we are the proud new owners of this peice by Charles Fazzino. I used to be an avid Dali lover and often dreamed about owning one of his artworks. My hubby and I visited a gallery in Va. 2 years ago looking to purchase a Dali when we stumbled upon Fazzino. I was immediately taken back by his 3-D pop art. We went to New York 3 weeks ago and found this peice and debated for and hour about buying it, but then left disappointed. Until I got an invitation for this past Saturday to see one of his exhibits. Hep was there signing purchased art work and we casually veiwed many of his peices...until....fate behold...in the corner of the gallery...our New York peice was hanging there. I must admit, the price tag was a little more than we could afford, but the curator made us a deal we couldn't refuse. We walked with two of his peices and a special autograph for our son Tyler. He drew a picture for Tyler of him hitting a home run out of the ballpark. Then signed it.
I had a heart attack later that evening thinking that it would be peanut butter and jelly for the next year!!!!
