Description

Where to begin with this piece?
It was the first piece of art that I can ever remember laying eyes on and having to hold back tears. It was hard to understand what it was about the art that moved me, the look in the woman's eyes, the friendship she shares with her pet, or perhaps seeing the best of a person I admire expressing himself with a paintbrush. I knew it wasn't just because it was a beautiful piece of artwork, it was something deeper than that.
When Brian and I first talked about his Jungle Girls and the stories behind each one, I started to understand my fascination with them and my need to make them mine at any price.
Turns out that my price simply wasn't enough and the White Tiger (or as I like to call it, The White Whale) remained out of reach.
Enter Carlos.
I won't go into the details, I will simply say that Carlos decided to put me out of my misery and plead my case with Jim and give him an offer that I guess he couldn't refuse, because without my even knowing about what they were hatching behind my back, the package was already on route before I found out that it was mine.
What I have felt since that moment last week is shock, joy, fear, bewilderment and above all else gratitude.
It will never cease to amaze me how many wonderful people surround us and how they change and improve our lives with the best of intentions at any given moment. I am truly blessed.
Carlos, thank you my friend, thank you for bringing the white tiger to me. Thank you for being the gentleman you are. It shall never be forgotten. Jim, I know it wasn't easy, and I can promise you, it couldn't be in more grateful hands. The White Whale is home, and it is here to stay.

I know exactly what you mean. I still feel that even though she is in my home now. In fact, in person, I feel even more speechless when in her presence!

Alkis, I had no idea if was you who originally owned this!? And yeah, you are right. Since you know how amazing this piece is in person, there isn't anyway it is leaving me now that I finally have her. She is already up on my wall and looks great looking over me while I work. :)
