It has arrived this week. BIG TIME.
I have now sold 5 paintings this week and I am waiting to see what happens to one that is currently sitting in someones shopping basket. I hope it is comfortable in there, but not too comfortable. I also hope that the picture is remembering to shout 'LOOK AT ME' every 36 minutes - shopping basket peer pressure - tick! You need weeks like these to restore your faith a little and remember that you can do this. It was a good idea, and your dream job is there for the taking.
I also got monumental feedback today from the two purchases on Monday/Tuesday. I love it when people get enthusiastic about what I do. It makes eveything worthwhile.
Anyway, back in the office now. Unpacked. EVERYTHING perfect!!! If you ever get fed up with painting, I am sure Pickfords removals would love your packing skills!!I ADORE the paintings. Both of them. Absolutely love them. A wonderful mix of architecture and fairytale. Reality meets fantasy. They will be life-long pieces for me to cherish and admire. Already looking forward to buying my next one too!!!
You have a wonderful, rare and special talent Laura and I feel privileged to own your work".
Not much will beat praise like that! (I am also very happy that someone has finally noticed that I could win a prize for my ability to make unbreakable cardboard boxes).
Thank you art fans! :-)
