Crossing the finish line

At last, the first weekend of the Greenock Art Club show is over. I have completed my stewarding duties and can now just relax and hope to sell something. As yet, none of my work has sold at Art Club shows but I live for the day someone will like what I produce enough to want to take it home.

I have been trying to figure out what makes a piece sell and the answer is…I just don’t know. It’s not always about quality or skill but seems to be more about luck. Based on that principle, I will continue to paint the things I enjoy and, hopefully, one day, a fellow spirit will wander in off the street and wish to take a piece of my work home. In the meantime, I’ll continue to stockpile highland cows, cats and landscapes, and as long as I continue to paint what I enjoy…I’ll have no issue with that.
