Update on this painting: Last night, the museum held their event, Big Names, Small Art. My painting was in the first Auction Table (there are 4 tables - I prefer to go first so we can leave earlier and I'm not spending the entire evening stressing out if someone is going to buy my painting!) Good news - there was a bidding war at the end and this little painting that I valued at $175 sold for $300! The buyer is the head of one of our biggest investment firms in town. 100% of the proceeds go to the museum - and I got a lot of credibility - and possibly a baby commission!

Thanks again for everyone's input!
Cheers,
Sharon

I went to visit my sister and her husband in Denver. (I live near Raleigh, NC.) It was a good visit, especially our 1700-mile road trip (in 4 days!) during which we visited the Grand Canyon + 3 other national parks in Utah, none of which I'd never seen. Glad to be home now. But I have some amazing reference photos!

Thanks, EmmaLee! And what a fun vacation you had, Susan! You sure covered a lot of ground in a short time! It's been years since I visited the Grand Canyon, but I still recall how spectacular it was! Can't wait to see what paintings evolve from your trip!
Cheers,
Sharon
