Don't despair


8X11
Oil on canvas

I painted this as a lark. Unlike anything before or since.
This has been in a gallery since 2011.
The gallery owner called today and told me that it sold at a good price.

That gallery owner is a gem.

Don't despair. Keep the paintings coming and get them out there.

Well....congratulations to you on your sale! It just goes to show that when you get a specific person in front of a specific painting, you are likely to get a sale.

That is excellent news!

Congratulations! You never know when the right buyer will come along.

Kind of on topic - A friend of mine had some work in a gallery many miles away from home that had been there for quite a while with no word from the gallery owner. They were planning to go and pick up all the art after the holidays, but a letter showed up last week with a nice check in it, saying that they had sold everything but had not realized that a check was not mailed until they were doing their year end accounting in December!

Thanks, all, for looking and commenting

I'm in a painting slump right.
This might be what I needed to get out of it.
