View Full Version : A Surprise Request !

As many of you know I have not painted for quite awhile. Just can't seem to make the brain operate the brush these days. I will be so thrilled when I can once again find my muse. Chris where the h*** are you !???!! :eek:

I have been feeling pretty punky about my art and then just yesterday, out of nowhere, I get an email from one of the partners/owners of "The Urban" (local coffee house and smallest art gallery in the world). He had seen some of the cards I had dropped off eons ago of the painting I did (same title).

See here: http://www.deborahs-art.com/RecentWork.htm (scroll down a few paintings).

I had completely forgotten about those cards because when I dropped them off there was clearly no interest from the person I spoke with. Well, earlier today I dropped off the original painting (on loan until July 31st, signed contract) and a standing order for note cards (I left 50 with him). The notecards have been selling like hotcakes at the local food co-op so I think they will do well in the actual establishment. The owner wanted to buy the painting but I am not ready to sell it just yet. If I ever find that darn muse I have great intentions of painting a series of three city scenes. Maybe I was a fool to hold on to the painting, but it just didn't feel right to sell it now.

Anywho, that's the best art news I've had since the winter solstice.

Deb
P.S. My husband stopped off at the Urban on his way home from work and said the painting had been hung over the most popular booth, cool spotlight on it, and the cards are on a very retro looking rack. :thumbsup:

Well I saw my shadow, so I was keeping my head down for a few more weeks Deb, but here I am. :wave:

This is great news, I think you ought to be plenty inspired by this to get back at it, muse or no muse. It is a great painting, as are all on your site.... Methinks the World's Smallest Gallery will soon discover you have outgrown them, and you will be moving on to bigger and better things, gnarly foot and all.

Big congrats, Deb!!!

Hope this good news will nudge your muse to come back! It will be so good to see some more ofw your work!

And remember--painting is and is supposed to be fun!
I find I am not painting when I fret too much that my stuff is not up to snuff ("too much" are the operative words there since I always feel it's not up to snuff ;) --and then when I start and realize it's fun nevertheless, the muse sorta comes back. SO the secret for me it to remember I enjoy the process, no matter what the product. :)

Goodness gracious! I need to stay away more often and re-post old paintings when I come back. :) So many comments and nice replies. I am blown away.

Today has been surreal. I have had several emails inquiring to purchase this painting! (local businesspersons who wandered into the Urban for coffee this morning). How odd that last fall when I schlepped the painting and cards in there -- not a drop of interest. I'm thinking it has something to do with the weather. Dull, dreary, and gray -- no interest, sunny and springtime -- wallets need opening ? :) I am going to re-think my position about selling this. Of course, I will offer it to the owner first since he asked first. Now all I have to do is get the courage to pick up a brush and paint SOMETHING... ANYTHING!!!! again.

Each and every one of you are so encouraging and I can't thank you enough.

Hugs to all,:heart:
Deb
P.S. Brian and Chris, I don't have a gnarly footie anymore. :) In fact it's so darn cute I can't wait to wear sandals. In Sept. footie #2 gets un-gnarled.
