I have not posted much this year. Wow! I can’t believe the year is near to its end.
I have been very selective this year in where I have been exhibiting. Which means I have had a break from some yearly shows.
However, I have had a couple of good weeks lately…which has ended the year on a high.
One of my paintings was voted and won the prize for ‘People’s Choice’ at the Blackheath Rhododendron Festival Art Show. I have never won this before, and it was a great surprise! I also sold 2 of my works at this show, which was very pleasing 🙂
I received a call late this afternoon, a call I think every artist wishes to the other…the one that says: “You don’t have to come and pick up your unsold works… as they all sold”. I was hiking in my favourite place, and was so grateful and surprised with the news.
I’m not sure if every one realises…but a sale for an artist (compared to buying from a mass market big business) not only supports them, but supports them to continue in developing their talent. We paint a picture developed in our mind and through hard work. It is always amazing that someone else out there, connects with it and wants to have it hanging up on their wall.
Many thanks to those who bought my 4 works. You have helped me continue in my work.
