Joy! Painting sold

Yes, that's right I sold my painting Summer Rain.  I've been hanging some of my work at the local Health Centre in Sorrento since it opened. The Blind Bay Painters have many pieces in the office. The paintings are changed every few months and it's a win win situation. I get my work out of my studio and they get paintings on the wall. 

I just got the call I really never expected.  I was happy to have my work up there but never really thought that it would sell.  This piece was painted at a Plein Air event with the Thompson, Nicola, Shuswap Federation of Canadian Artists in Chase, just 20 minutes away.

So it show that being out there is the key to selling.  That's obvious but also being willing to spend a bit of time to help in the community is also a real advantage.  I don't expect to sell a lot of paintings there and this may well be the only one, but the reality is paintings sell them selves.  You can't really sell them, it's like real estate, if you don't like the house the agent can't sell it to you.

I'm celebrating with homemade strawberry shortcake, my neighbour just gave me some lovely ripe berries and I've just made the shortcake. 

Happy Painting.

Websites can be fun!

Today I paid for another year on My Art Club. com.  It's been 3 years since I joined and I can say it has been a please to be a part of the community of artists. I enjoy having the security of knowing help is available when I need it and Cam has always made it easy to work out any kinks I have encountered. Most of them my own.

I had a website for years that I started with a cheap web builder software package and had nothing but grief with it as technology changed and it became eventually unworkable.  Once I set up my site on Myartclub.com it has been a pleasure to update, post and maintain.  It suits my current needs and most likely my future needs as well.

Have fun building your site and spend more time painting and less time managing your site.  It's easy with myartclub.com
