|What the Lark Knows (M.A. Reilly, Ringwood, NJ, 11/23/2010)|
Someone in Australia just purchased "What The Lark Knows," an art print of mine. I most likely will never know who the art purchaser was and in a few weeks I will receive payment. Meanwhile the art buyer will receive in the mail an art print of an image I made late fall, just a few days after Rob's birthday, when Devon was in 6th grade. It was a day when there was a glorious fog. Dev and I ended up playing hooky from work and school.
"You want to run around in the fog?" I asked my son early that morning on the way to school and work.
"We'll go out for breakfast after I make a few images."
We headed to the grounds of the local botanical gardens and Devon would later pose for me and then run through a field as the sun , looking very much like the moon, burned through some of the fog. I was able to capture both moments as photographs (see below).
And then we went out to a local diner and had some breakfast.

Now and then, I think about the many ways that the Internet helps to connect people with one another and with work that gets shared. I think of this each time I get a notification from Red Bubble, the company that sells reproductions of my work. It's a bit of a kick to think that in a week or so an image I made in 2010 will be hanging on the wall of someone's home in Australia. What a glorious time to be alive.
