Sold!


I was thrilled to learn that one of my pieces sold on opening night of an exhibit that benefits Art de Cure, a local charitable organization. I am usually pretty comfortable participating in art exhibits, but I was self-conscious as I left my pieces for this show, as my work is mixed media, and very non-traditional. When I looked around the room, most of the other work that I saw was very traditional --matted and framed paintings -- and I felt as though my pieces would stick out like a sore thumb and looked too casual and haphazard.

So it's nice to know that someone "got me" so to speak.
See the listing at the right if you are interested in visiting this exhibit, which will be on display until mid-June.

I get you too, Kerri and am glad I do! This piece you sold is stunning and your so deserving. You have a great talent that you so willingly share. Hope you sell many more pieces...!! It's a great morale booster to have an item you created be snatched up so quickly ... and to have someone that don't know you get you!!!
Good wishes always...
