While living in New York we had the opportunity to rub shoulders with some incredibly talented people. We were in the cheaper part of the city which put us next to the Julliard students and other up and coming creatives. Mary Sauer is a very gifted artist. She approached me at church one Sunday and asked if she could paint me. I was so flattered to be asked. During the photo shoot I started to catch a glimpse of her vision and quickly realized that I had underestimated her. Sure enough, when I saw the final product I was stunned. I absolutely love both pieces she did.
The smaller piece shown below was on tour and is now currently being sold for $850+. The one above is currently on tour and is not for sale yet, though I'm sure it will be even more out of my price range. For a while Mary Sauer was featured at Sloane Merrill Gallery.
