That's a lot of good stuff in one day! And it got even better tonight, when I got a call from the director of the Sautee-Nacoochee Gallery to let me know my altar piece So Fragile A Fire is the first purchase of a special exhibit at Yonah Mountain Vineyards!
|So Fragile A Fire - Mixed media: acrylic paint, poplar, Crepe Myrtle wood, feathers, pearl grapevine tendrils. Approx. 28 x 14 x 3.|
The irony is that this piece had been at another gallery for over two years at a lower price. When I picked it up, I determined not to undersell these pieces any more. I spend so much time on them compared to a "normal" painting, and I hate to let them go. I raised the price considerably, rather hoping this one would not sell so I might keep it. Lord knows, I need the money, but I think it's important to keep the ones that are most meaningful to me.
