This blog is not for the light-hearted or easily offended. If either one of those descriptions applies to you, i would suggest you start drinking before you read this blog. A sense of humor is suggested. If you don't have one that sucks for you … find one and get a life!
It seems that I get slacker and slacker on this site, which is why it’s ironic that I’ve agreed to help a friend on her site. I was reading something the other day talking about how “writers have to write” which is how I know that I’m absolutely not a writer. I’m basically a talker and occasionally I have something to say that requires me to write it down.
Nonetheless this blog, slack as it is, continues to exist and I continue to exist as well.
In todays news I can announce that I have sold a painting.
First did I tell you that I have my work up on Saatchi Art? I think it did. If not, here’s the link
I have had a lot of hits but I haven’t sold anything on line yet but I did sell TWO paintings locally. A friend of mine is a kickass interior designer, Marta Mitchell of Marta Mitchell Interiors, and she sold a client two of my smaller paintings.
I’m very excited because a) they’re the first I’ve sold and b) they’re the first that I’ve sold!
Basically I’m psyched.
I’d be really, really happy to have some total stranger (or any of you guys) buy one but still, it’s a start.
I also didn’t have to wrap it for delivery since it’s local and trust me, that’s a colossal pain in the ass. I know because I am shipping a picture west and I followed the steps on the site and jeez … it’s not easy!
You have to:
Sign the painting (which I rarely do because I hate my signature)
Print and fill out a LETTER OF AUTHENTICITY
Wrap the painting in glassine paper (sort of like parchment paper for baking)
Put cardboard around the painting
Wrap it in bubble wrap
Put two more cardboard layers around the painting
Put corner protectors on the painting
Box the painting
HOLY SHIT! I’m talking a lot of materials, none of which exist in my house. Nonetheless, we got it done.
That’s nothing compared to the big painting which needs ALL THE STEPS ABOVE plus putting it in a wood crate. Fortunately, nobody seems to be in a rush to buy them so I haven’t had to panic about that yet.
Anyways, that’s what I’ve been up to. Also I have a party coming up and we are back to W(h)ine with Lynn, which is always a great success.
Geez I’m brilliant!!!
