girl in indigo contest winner

during my first official art show, i had a contest that would guarantee a piece of artwork to the person that would provide the most clever name to one of my paintings .. all the pieces in my first show were untitled and all observers were given latitude to name pieces .. the best story was something somewhat unrelated, but stands as one of the best stories to date .. one random night while the show as going on, i stopped into a midtown bar for a drink and started talking to a gal in her early 40's that was from indiana .. as i went on talking about the town, she mentioned the river market area and the fact that she saw an art show and stole all the post cards from the show .. she said that she felt so guilty that she went to confessional .. and at that point, she menitoned my name and i showed her my driver's license for validity .. i thought she was gonna fall off her bar stool .. she loved my marquee piece and called it 'lady in indigo' .. becuase of her zest and zeal, i later met her at a bar and gave her the marquee piece for being so honest and cool about herself and her existence .. her name was melissa guth and she was deserving of winning that contest .. cheers ..
