Hey, I’m back. Can you believe it? How many days is this in a row? Two right???
What a lot of questions.
So … hmmm. Where was I? Oh yeah, I changed my attitude and I went back on Sunday with a newfound attitude. Here’s what happened during the week.
On Monday, I went to the Universal Furniture party. You see, as you might recall they had many of my bigger and better pieces.
The problem was that they were all on the 2nd and 3rd floor and designers can’t get up there because the sales reps only take their large accounts up there. You know, like Macy’s, Rooms to Go, Furniture Land South … places like that.
BUT … on Monday they had a party and everyone can go up there. That’s where my art is and it’s displayed like a gallery. I got there at 6:00 and I had excused Kevin because I didn’t want him to have to go to High Point.
After having a bite to eat I figured “what the hell … let’s go” and I decided that my paintings weren’t going to sell themselves so I better get to it. I started diving into large groups of designers, asking them if they’d been upstairs and seen all the art in the hallways. If they had I engaged them on the art and handed out business cards.
If they hadn’t I encouraged them to go upstairs and gave out business cards. I got a lot of positive feedback and maybe that’s enough. All in all it was a great experience,
Meanwhile, Universal wants to use my paintings in their catalog, the president of the company loved the art, and some designer might be interested in a painting or two so I just need to let things shake out.
All in all, it was a good experience and if nothing comes of it then I’ll just devise another plan.
I’ve already tried 4 paintings using ideas I got from the market and I’m psyched to continue my artistic growth.
OK? That’s my round up guys….
