FABULOUS, Sharon.  Great poster.  So attractive.

The SMALL idea is a really big one!  We found that with my husband's woodturnings, small sells better than big, especially if it's to a tourist.  Easy to pack or ship home.

Best wishes for a great show.  I'm sure you will do well.

 :thankyou: Mea! My goal is to have about 20-30 pieces - some new, some from previous shows. Keeping both the size and the prices on the lower side...Next step is to find frames and mats for everything that don't cost too much (not going with custom made frames for these sizes.)  Nice to know your husband figured this out too!
Cheers,
Sharon

Sharon,
Been thinking about your earlier comment about "your style" and about comments from Nolan in the business classes.  Also, we all recognize your paintings when you put them on the forum, so you do have your own style.  I think what you are seeing is that you are not limited to one subject.

When one walks from boot to boot loaded with painting... one would marely spend a few seconds and get a gelstad of,  for example, landscape paintings.  Either nothing catch the eyes because you see all the paintings in one sight, or you love them all and start really looking and comparing.  On the other hand, if all the paintings are different subjects, you are more likely to spend one or two seconds on each one to find what you like... and I think more likely to find something you like.

This was my observation from a little experiment I conducted with a friend last Fall.  I freely walk in a fairly large exhibit and she followed me with a chronograph (the experiment was held twice by currious who wanted to know what she was timing).  She recorded type of display in one word (she had table with landscape, flowers, abstract, etc.), my comment (like, don't) , and time spent at the booth.  She could barely keep up as I was moving much faster then we had both expected.

To be scientific, we would need to repeat this with many people of various background.  But based on the above I would venture to say that your exhibits with various sujects/styles may be more eye-catching then a single subject/style. 

When I look at one of your series, like your small paintings, I always spot one that I would really like to have.  Same with your previous series.  I think it is because I compare different things.  For example,  if they were all umbreallas, I don't know if I would find your umbrella painting as attractive.  I find the same with other established PB artists.

Does this make sense to you... or only to me?

I am trying to find a term to describe your "all over the place  style", must be a new art movement.  I beleive your small paintings will be a success.  But for good measure I wish you  :gl:

Cheers, Annie

You are such a dear friend, Annie! Thank you for what you wrote. I'm actually now at peace with my style - which is I'm just going to paint what makes me happy! So be it if I never have a gallery represent me. So be it if art critics aren't very complementary. I paint because it gives me joy. And if someone wants to purchase a painting then I'm beyond thrilled since I now it will bring them joy, too.

I agree - a bunch of umbrella paintings would be dull - I much prefer variety - the paintings and with life!

Big hugs!!
Cheers,
Sharon

Thanks, Kelly! And I forgot to update the results of my last art show for those following on this thread - 12 paintings sold!!! Plus, one of the buyers has commissioned me to paint a picture of her son - I'll work on that next month. Thanks again to everyone for your continued enthusiastic support!
Cheers,
Sharon

Thank you Val, Kelley and Nolan! And yes Nolan - prices are definitely going up! Instead of averaging $100-250, my paintings are now selling for $250-$1000!
Cheers,
Sharon
