Title: I Sold Part of Me
Post by: CarolHorvath on May 11, 2015, 07:31:17 PM
Today, I received a commission from someone. This is the first one ever. I must learn all I can about that subject so that I at least look like I know what I am doing. :confused:
Also, the Reception at the art show was held yesterday. Today, I put photos of my paintings on Facebook and the horse and girl sold. (I'm flabbergasted)
I should have shared my work with others before this (40 years) but thought I just wasn't good enough. At least I'm still here to appreciate seeing others enjoy my paintings. Thank you to all my friends on here who have helped convince me and for reminding me that artwork is subjective.  :hug:
Here is the one that was sold.

Mazel tov, Carol!!! I knew it was just a matter of time before others came to appreciate your talent as much as we do. And I love this painting that sold! What's the subject matter of the commission? I know this will be the first of many. And tell everyone you know about your paintings!!

Wow, you just never know. My painting was the only one sold at the show out of 80 entries.  :eek:
 Last night was the finale of the show and my buyer took it home. She sent me a pic of it on her bedroom wall. She said she wants to have it in her bedroom so she sees it before going to sleep and the first thing she sees in the morning. What a tribute to my painting. I was astonished when I read her note.
Thank you for your support paint basketeers.

Oh, Carol.  How wonderful - what an honor to be the only artist who sold and to have the painting go to someone who will cherish it!!

Ahhh... so nice to hear such good news for you.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Carol, congratulations on your sale and I pray that it will be the first of many for you.  What a lovely note your buyer sent you and it is indeed an honour that she will see it when she goes to bed and when she wakes up in the morning.  You must feel very proud and rightly so.
