Oh, It’s U! and The Adventures of Selling Art

Oh, It’s U! oil on cavas, 18″x18″

Today is for painting. But first, a few words…

Last weekend was the Keep It Local Art Show. While peddlin’ my wares, I fell in love with a llama, met some wonderful fellow artists, visited with friends, ate some delicious chile, received lots of favorable feedback, sold some work, and donated this painting in the Art Hunt to raise money for the One Step Further food pantry. (We raised 596 pounds of food and $400 dollars!) With a canned food or cash donation you could hunt for free art and go home with something cool.

I wonder who found my painting. I wonder who’s wall it’s on now. I wonder who passed it buy cuz it was “too creepy.” One guy (who seemed creepier than my clowns!) said he saw it on the art hunt and although it was well executed, he wasn’t keen on the subject matter. Seriously? So, apparently, creepy doesn’t attract creepy, or maybe it does.  

Anyway, It was great fun! I think I’ll do it again in the Spring.

    Have you ever traveled to NYC to show your art? I apologize if you have an already wrote about it.

    No. Not yet. I travelled there years ago, on a pauper’s buget, to see the sights, hang out in the village, and sleep on a friend’s floor, but never to promote my work. I still have to go to Paris someday, too.
