So I’m hanging out here in the office while my cat stares longingly at the fish and I’m attempting to write a post. I haven’t told you guys about my little art shindig.
So last Friday they had the opening of the art show that I’m participating in. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect because I’ve actually never been to an art show nor have I been to the opening of the art show.
What I do know is that I sent out the invite to all my W(h)ine with Lynn peeps and most of them are out of town so I wasn’t really expecting much. I knew that my brothers were coming and two of my kids and one or two friends but I way underestimated.
First there were 25 artists in the show so it was actually pretty crowded. Then I was pleasantly surprised how many people I knew showed up to check out the art. No, I didn’t sell any pictures but I really didn’t expect to on opening night.
First, it was hard to see because it was so crowded and second most of the people there were friends and family of the artists.
It turns out I knew a few people who were also in the show so that was interesting. At any rate, I got really good feedback on my paintings. I’m not the type of person who would just quit because nobody liked my work but like any other human, it was nice to hear the compliments.
I didn’t even think those were my best works but people seemed impressed. The art will be up for two weeks and we shall see if anything sells in that time period. Either way it was a good experience and I’ve continued painting and I think I’ve figured out how to go about selling my stuff if this doesn’t work out.
Meanwhile, Andie and Daniel were there and they loved, loved, loved these other paintings but a woman named Nancy Bullock and they wanted to see if she was open to “bartering” although I am really not sure that is helpful to me.
But the kids loved the paintings and when I met the artist I told her so and she was very thrilled because she wasn’t quite sure they were good (they were).
After the opening we had dinner and then Daniel went back and Andie spent the night.
All in all, considering that Kevin wasn’t there, it was a great evening. Here’s my pictures hanging and stuff:
