A successful day

No images today, as the commission I am working on is of a little baby that has passed. These commissions are always very special to me, but I never post them on the web for obvious reasons. Last night was a busy night, with the opening of the Blacktown City Art Exhibition, where I was honoured to find that I had been awarded a Highly Commended for 'A Life Well Spent', and also to see that the Council had acquired this artwork. We then left and drove to another exhibition opening night, and I discovered that 'The Artist or the Subject' had sold. Last night was also the opening for the Illustrator's Australia exhbition, and I am delighted to see that 'Untold Story' has sold. It never rains but it pours, as the saying goes, is so true. I can go weeks and not sell a single artwork, nor get any commissions, and then all of a sudden there are lovely days like yesterday, where you rejoice that people like your art enough to part with their hard earned dollars, and that is a great feeling!!!!

Congratulations on your award and sales! How wonderful to have three sold all at once, and a well-deserved award!

Oh Karen that is BRILLIANT news! It really validates what you are producing is fabulous (no validation needed in my eyes though!).

Success begets Success - someone said that didn't they? Yo are living proof.

I am covered in paint and white charcoal at the minute - I feel like a grub. Thank goodness for industtrial strength soap and looong showers!

Make sure you spend the moula on something that you like. You know, the guilty pleasures stuff!

Cindy
