now, it’s Art Selling Girl!

Everyone has a superhero name, and mine changes weekly. This week it’s Art Selling Girl.

One of my works sold from my Gallery Obscura show! One Shot, at your right, sold unframed. Yay! I love, love LOVE selling work for a number of reasons. One, the money is always nice. Two, it’s always uplifting that someone likes your work enough to buy it, take it home and put it on their wall, and Three, the more stuff that sells the less art I have to take home, which is great. One of the things about being an artist is that you end up with a hell of a lot of art. It’s good, because art is a wonderful thing to be surrounded by, but god damn it takes up a lot of space!

I also sold an artwork on etsy, since I’ve been moving I’m having a sort of art garage sale on etsy, I’ve put up old works I don’t really need anymore but would hate to throw out. I did toss a bunch of artworks too, but some I know will find someone out there to love them. So one of those has gone too. One less in the storage container, which is great.

Gallery Obscura is also having a VIP night and they want me to to a talk on digital art work. I don’t know a lot about digital stuff, so I have to now do a bunch of research. But that’s fine, I’m ok with knowing more about the artforms I use, as you’ve probably guessed! But it appears that although digital stuff is usual for the advertising and computer game world, it’s not anywhere near as wide spread in the art world. So it’ll be an interesting adventure to learn about it.

Art Selling Girl… aaaaaaaaaWWAAAAAYYYY!!!!!

woo hoo!

well done you. i loved that one, and how fabulous that someone wants to take it home and put it up on their wall.

chocolate cake all round (as i believe that is the traditional celebratory ritual of superheroes, either chocolate cake or cocktails, actually, preferrably both!)

Thank you so much Becclebee! Cake and cocktails is an excellent celebratory combination, if I do say so myself 🙂
