Hi folks, I finally decided to go out on a limb and submitted ten paintings to a local exhibition in our town. Five sold on opening night, so I was very pleased with that!

Thanks so much Dennis, that is very encouraging.
Thanks very much Danielle, Didwaud, Doina, Bamagal and Nolan.
Nolan and Dennis, why is it that the painting you have the least expectation for, is one of the first to sell? I find that odd.

Congratulations Neil, that is wonderful news. It doesnt surprise me tho, I think you are a really talented artist and I think you will always be able to sell your work. Well done, you must feel really proud. :yippee: :yippee:

which one was that Neil?

The answer lies in what I am constantly telling everybody :
1) We underestimate the quality of our artworks
2) Artworks appeal to people for different reasons. It may be the style they like, it could be that the colours match the colour scheme in the room or even that they want to gift the artwork to somebody who likes the subject you have painted.

Often a sale depends on who walks through the door at the correct time.

Thanks for answering my question Nolan, that makes sense.

Thanks so much Liz, all 10 works were framed, I just included the cost in the price of the painting. They were fairly decent quality. The exhibition runs for another two weeks, so we will see how it goes. I had some more good news, one of my entries won the 'sponsors choice' award. (It's only a small town though, so not that big a deal, but encouraging for me nonetheless)
