Okay, thank you to those who said they would have bought my work from the Figureworks show had they had the chance. BUT, it was bought by a fellow artist, who really loved it and snapped it up just after the show opened. I don't think it could possibly have a better home. I'm quite tickled that one of my peers, who never buys art, had to have it.
At last nights vernissage Mr. P and I walked around the gallery just after the show opened and checked out all the art work. On our second pass around Mr. P noticed that someone had placed a red sticker on my tag.
Mr. P.: "Why is there a red sticker on your tag?"
Me: "That means it sold."
Mr. P: ".....no, really. Why is there a red sticker on your tag?"
Me: "Because it sold."
Mr. P. "Are any of your relatives here?"
Me: "It wouldn't surprise me, but that would just be depressing."
I can save face and say that it did get snapped up right away by someone that was not a relative and that I didn't know, who "never buys art" but just loved the work.
I thought 'wouldn't it be nice to work with a medium that's quicker to work with than coloured pencil'. It was for the first two pictures I did, but somewhere along the way I lost track of the purpose of working in ink and ended up here. Highly detailed, many hours later, pulling my hair out. Sigh. When will I learn? Probably never. Just not very bright I guess.
