Excited by my first sale from the Grape Gallery!
I almost threw the envelope away thinking it was something I had no interest in, something about a spa. Then I remembered that Pelican Spa is the name of Grape Studio company, I’d gotten a notice from this same company with a $15 check for a couple tiles that were sold a week ago. I’d taken the trash out already when this light came on in my head and I retrieved the trash and found a check for $112 for the sale of a painting. The trash was picked up today so if I had not realized my error in time I would not have known I had a sale. Funny thing, I’m not sure which of the paintings sold, they were named, this one called Cheer-1 I think it must be this painting. What a pleasure to know it will hang in someones home.
I gave away two paintings to a couple that was leaving the park to live in a different state where they bought a home, they were very generous to me, they gave me that beautiful leather chair I have in my studio, a step that has helped me to safely step up into my RV, and a fence for Charley. Good people.
Time for me to start painting seriously, I’ve been stuck on doing much of the same style, abstract stuff and sent them to family and some gifted in the park, I think I am over it now.
Check out that painting in black and white, That is a color modification of a painting by my camera setting on noir, I’d tried to over paint a painting in black and white but was not successful .
I was painting using chalk paint, very interesting, vibrant colors flat!
These are the other paintings at the gallery.
