Purple Edge, 2007, Oil on Panel, 18x24
I got a call today from the owner of my NYC Gallery and she had some very exciting news for me. I had sent two 36x48 paintings down to her via Doug last week to add to the several pieces that they already have of mine. He said the large ones looked great in the gallery space and so I confess to fantasizing a bit about how cool it would be if one or the other sold right away. Little did I know!
At the last minute, the gallery decided to include my work in their booth at the Affordable Art Fair. My paintings were given a prominent spot I guess, and received some good attention. Hearing that feedback would have made my day, but it gets better. The gallery sold every single one of my paintings! Holy cow!
I was incredibly full of myself for about an hour, until I realized that I had to clean the really icky kid's bathroom and prepare for my daughter's sleep over, which is still in full swing (they are semi quiet, watching a movie). So daily life saved everyone around me from my attitude. Heh.
I still have a little buzz though.
