Many of the very small pieces are gone, sold at the April First Saturday Arts Market in Houston. We also sold several framed 5×7 whimsical pieces along with several 5×7 traditional landscape paintings as well. Our new Whimsitecture banner helped draw people closer, and once they got close enough to read it, they were hooked. We have a lot of work to do before the next FSAM.
SOLD: We also got word from Affaire d’Art, our gallery in Galveston, TX, that one of our whimsical pieces sold there. These sales provide us with validation that people like our odd, quirky art well enough to spend money on it.
I’m trying to get a better feel for acrylics. If I can somehow combine my tendency to paint traditionally with the whimsical territory we’ve been wandering around in lately, I think I can produce some larger paintings. We’ll see.
And… there’s a book in the works. It’s proving to be slow going, but I think we’ll get there eventually.
We do live in our own little world, but it’s okay… they know us there.
