It’s been quite a while since I sold a piece. Maybe that’s something I shouldn’t admit, but it is a reality of life for many of us in markets where art is under-appreciated. It is just such a lovely thing to have some one like one enough that they want to bring it home. Or to have some one say “It will be perfect for him” as my customer did today. All the Honorable Mentions, all the places, and even all the Best in Shows, really don’t compare to the feeling of selling a piece. It is so much more “human” and “heart oriented”, as opposed to the judges head bent calculus. NOT that I don’t LOVE having my abilities acknowledge by fellow artists who are often more accomplished than I am.
