I have been quiet all week, I know! I have had a sore throat all week and last night it got so painful I went to urgent care. Today I have no voice and I am just tired so I am taking it easy.
Anyway, I came home to a message today from the lady who purchased my "Wayland's Watching " piece at the recent art show (it ends today actually) that is pictured here. She said she had some questions. Hmmmmmmm.......I thought. It kinda made me nervous actually!LOL I have never had someone call me after purchasing my art before.
So I called her back-I hardly have a voice right now but I called her back soon after I listened to the message. She asked me alot of questions on like how I did things and what I used, and how I named him (winking at Carmen!).........and she told me how excited she was to have the piece and how she loved it. I was so flattered.
This lady has been exhibiting for a long time and is a great artist herself. Towards the end of the phone call she asked me "Where did you go to art school?" She was so surprised when I told her I am completely self taught. She then said "You are gonna go places!"
Now how HUGE a compliment is that???? I feel like I am floating on air. That meant so much.
I still consider myself fairly new to all this...........so WOW!!!
I really wanted to go down to the gallery and take a last look at my pieces that sold. But, I just didn't get there this week. I was sort of sad about it earlier. When I came home to that phone call it just made my entire day. Its so awesome to know, that something I created made someone else that happy. As hard as it is to let go of my work when it sells, calls like that I received today made it all worth it! What an awesome feeling.
Tomorrow I go pick up the one piece that didn't sell-I am actually very excited to hang her in my home. I am anxious to update my house with some newer artwork. I have alot of my older stuff from a few years back on the walls......my style has really changed so I really want to update it.
