Woot! Sold my first two pieces of artwork! I was more than a little stunned at that turn of events, considering I didn't want to sell them.
Our local arts center had a membership show and competition. Most of my artwork is bound in my visual journal and runs across a 2-page spread. I didn't have anything frameable except the last few Urban Sketches I've done which were bound in a spiral sketchbook.
I did want to support the arts center with the entry fee and some artwork so the gallery walls wouldn't be so nekkid. Support your local arts!
So, with chagrin, I cut the sketches out of my sketchbook, matted and framed them. I tagged them with a price I didn't think anyone would pay for a sketchy-sketch. To my amazement they both sold!
Arrrggghhhh! I actually wanted to keep them. I rillyrilly didn't think they would sell.
The lady at the arts center told me that they could have sold at least 6-8 prints of Elm Street Bakery if they had been available. Oy. I have no idea how to make an arty print.
Here they are, matted and framed:
Elm Street Bakery
To the unknown purchasers:
Thank you so much for buying my little sketches and supporting our little local arts center. I hope they bring you much enjoyment.
When visitors look at them, tip their head to one side, and with a puzzled expression say, "They're so......" and struggle for the right word....
Quirky is the word they will be searching for there.
Just trying to be helpful.
