I had the experience this weekend of being at the Gallery and directly selling a number of my pieces. My favorite pieces. I found myself in tears on opening night when a couple who are stalwart supporters of our Gallery said they wanted to buy my Old Growth Island painting. I love it! And they'll be coming by to pick it up. Tough letting it go, but of course its a thrill to sell a big piece of art. Earlier that day two smaller originals went out the door. I miss those, too! And today one of my favorite Scrumbles (Sizzle) left with a new friend. Yikes!
But don't worry! My mind is full of new Scrumble ideas, new paintings, a new series and so much more. The challenge is balancing the day to day busy-work of running our enterprise with the down and messy work of making art. And all that within the framework of a distractable mind! But its a challenge I'm used to and one I know how to weave around. Let's see what we cook up this week!
