Thumbs up I also had my first gallery opening

Hi All,

Last Friday Jennifer at Redstreake Gallery in Cowan, TN had her official ribbon cutting grand opening and I was the featured artist. My show runs all month.

We hung about 20 paintings, including minis and sold 4 plus a bunch of minis on Friday.

I just received a phone call and she sold 3 more today!!!

Paula

Re: I also had my first gallery opening

ALL RIGHT PAULA!!!!!!!!!!!! Well deserved, you worked hard. Hope you are enjoying the feeling of success, not necessarily monetarily, but in the fact that your work is being well received by collectors and the public. THis is a wonderful reaffirmation of your passion and drive. Of course, the money is good too!!

Re: I also had my first gallery opening

Such good news Paula, contrats!!! I am proud of you. Now, if you can possibly share, I would love to know how you priced your pieces and what sizes they were. I am getting ready for my second show ever and I am eager to know what other artists are doing.
