I made my largest pastel sale a week ago, and banked the cheque yesterday! So the funds are going in, and then coming right back out again because I'm using it to buy a complete set of Schmincke's!! All 400 colours, ooh-la-la!! :clap:

I get very attached to my work, and find it hard to sell because of that - but if I can go shopping like this each time I'll be much happier to let my work go!

Am so excited I just had to share!!

Congratulations! And I drool over the thought of 400 set Schmincke's... My favourite brand for finishing layers.

Sales is a great incentive for letting go of one's 'babies'! And as one paints on and gets better and better, one becomes happy to see the earlier works 'grow up' and go out in the world on their own. I keep a photo of them, for records, and for happy memories. :-)

Thanks everyone :) It really is like coming full circle, the process of producing art, making a sale, and investing in more materials - it's a very satisfying process, too :thumbsup: I'm going to be "calendar watching" for the next couple of weeks, waiting for my box to arrive! I've been hanging out for a complete set of Schmincke's for years!! I can't wait to have them in my studio!
