Since making some of my paintings and prints available on Fine Art America yesterday, with a link to Facebook, I have sold the original of Christmas Market!

This makes me happy because I am donating 50% of the proceeds to my cancer center.

Thanks, friends. I also just learned that I sold a throw pillow, too, to an unknown (to me) buyer. Unlike the prints, I set the markup on this pretty low, to encourage sales.
