Wow! Everyone watch David Letterman tomorrow night...




I received an email from Stroke of Genius artist Kerri Gibbs. They only called her this afternoon at 2pm! Here's a link to Kerri's pages:
http://portraitartist.com/gibbs/gibbs.htm

I'm on Dave Letterman this Monday, 28th to paint a quick portrait (during the show) of Dave and Oprah together (from a photograph ) leading up to Oprah being on the show this Thursday!

They chose me from the portrait website "Stroke of Genius."

I am in shock and so nervous, but I just knew it was not something to say no to.

Prayers and Blessings EXTREMELY welcome!

Kerri

Wow - she HAS to be soooo nervous. I wonder how many of us could do this under that kind of pressure?

I don't know if I get Dave Letterman, but if I do, I'm definitely watching.

Very exciting news.

Congratulations Cynthia, and Kerri!

I will be sure to watch this! This could be great publicity, both for Stroke of Genius and for Kerri. I am praying for you Kerri......

Thanks everyone for your responses. I'm just so happy for Kerri. Knowing that my site helps to bring some good publicity or a commission to an artist makes my work so worthwhile.

That was nice! Kerri handled herself very professionally, and David Letterman seemed genuinely impressed with her painting in progress. He seems committed to sharing it with Oprah when she visits this Thursday!

I'll keep praying for you Kerri (you're doing just fine).

Garth
