Today I put 6 of my best paintings in my car determined to find where I might display them but the first place I stopped has a waiting list for a cubical to sell all kinds of art, they referred me to a place next door that was opening a gallery soon but had all the artists lined up but she took my card, Then off to another gallery that was full but took my card maybe in the Spring, took photos, something I was told he should not have done, but anyway at my 4th stop she took all my paintings, I couldn’t believe it and asked “so you want me to leave my paintings here now” and that was that! It’s maybe not the finest gallery I’ve visited but she (Grace) has a great space, many artists and art work of all kinds. Even though she takes %50 I’ll still have enough to buy more red paint.
I’d hope to be able to sell my art somewhere but I am not having any luck finding a venue.
Los Cruces is out because I don’t live in the right county and the farmers market here doesn’t start until next month and they may already have as many arts and crafts allowed vs farmers items.
So now I have my paintings in frames ready to sell and no venue until Spring. There may be more opportunity then.
I guess I’ll just keep painting and maybe add note cards here one of these days, amazing I can keep myself busy all day long doing the same things over and over without much progress in anything attempted.
I’ll go to town tomorrow to find out what is going on in the park because I saw people selling stuff there a few weeks ago. I’ll see if there is space for me at a shop where you rent a cubicle , similar to what my sister Shar and I did for a while in RIchardson, we didn’t do well there, hope this place is busier, their location is good and I always see people in there when I’ve been there, I suspect they are fully staffed and cubicles full. I need to go to town anyway because I have nothing to snack on, no chocolate no ice cream nothing sweet which was the plan when I shopped last! I bought snacks for Charley and not me. He is getting a little chubby so I need to keep him slim and trim.
I have new news but I’ll put it in a new post….excited!
