I sold two pieces of art in January. One in a gallery and one through ETSY. yay!!!
This is the piece that sold in the gallery. Great feeling and no one was as happy as Tod was for me. How nice to have someone to share the sales with. I crept into the bedroom and said in a hushed tone bent sold! bent sold! It wasn't nice to wake him up but I was truly caught off guard by the email from the gallery saying it sold. I was busting at the seams with happy! He finally woke up and was thrilled for me. Great way to start the day.
I call this piece Bent for obvious reasons. It is one of the coolest scrap finds I have ever found. Every time I look at a picture of it I feel this fast swishy movement from below the photograph, as if the piece is somehow connected to the train that the photo is of. I found that piece of scrap at an old dump site close to home that was being cleared out for a housing development. This was back in 2005 and at the time I hadn't made many mixed media pieces. Tod still remembers me finding it and thinking I was nuts...I kind of felt nuts too as I had no idea what I would do with it, just knew it was too fun to pass up.
Just thought I would share a sale for those artists like me out there that need to know people are still buying art!
