hope for 2010
I've been hearing encouraging things from my new gallery in Colorado, Telluride Gallery of Fine Art
. The painting above, Going Home
(12" square) and two others were sold soon after they arrived a few weeks ago, and apparently things are overall pretty busy there. I've also had a string of sales at Darnell Fine Ar
t in Santa Fe. I'm thinking this may be a trend, because I've been seeing blogs, emails and facebook posts from other artists around the country with similar stories of recent sales, commissions, and opportunities. So maybe
, fingers crossed and quoting Yoko Ono, "Hard times are over, over for awhile."
I'm always very thankful when one of my paintings sells, but I feel an extra measure of gratitude for the people who bought my work in 2009. I'm sure it was a stretch for some of them, and their purchases meant so much. I'm also proud of all of the artists and galleries that hung in there this past year, and just kept doing what they do best. Wishing a prosperous, creative and art-filled 2010 to all!
