Christopher Cross Christmas Album with my Art Work!

I am so excited! This has been in the making for over 3 years! I can't believe it is finally done!
Three years ago, Christoper Cross' agent called me, and told me that they were looking online for something for his Christmas album, and they found my work and he loved my red pick up! Well....I am not big into names, so I really didn't know who he was, and I called Keri (my daughter) and told her, and she was throwing fits, told me who he was and what he sang, and that I needed to ask her if that was who he was!  So, the next time we talked I ask 'nonchalantly' if he sang 'Sailing' and she said yes he was! He also wanted me to paint the mailbox that is on the back page.  He owns both paintings.
 I was so excited I told everybody, then a year later, she writes and says the company who does his albums didn't want to  use it, and I was disappointed ,but know things change, so I just forgot about it, other than being embarrassed that I announced it!
In July of this year, she called me one morning and said 'Guess What?' Christopher IS going to use your art we picked. I ask her if she was making it up! I didn't tell very many people, since I was still skeptical!
 So Monday she tells me it is available on Amazon, and sent me the photos of the cover!! I am 'supposed' to get an autographed copy from him! I better!
Of course i got online and ordered one, to keep from waiting on mine! It just got here about 4:00, and now I am really on cloud nine! It is beautiful! They used my snow for the front cover, the pick up 'Coming Home'
is on the inside of the cover. The mail box is on the back side and inside!
I hope you can go pick you up a copy! OR order one from Amazon! I haven't listened to it yet, but I do have some of his Christmas songs, and they are beautiful.
I am so blessed that he found my work...blessed God allows me to create, and blessed because I have friends who believed in my art, and set me up a website a long time ago!
