Broad Ripple Art Fair Art Center Student Show 2010
This is the first of five paintings, I am pleased to say, that were sold to new buyers, and, with one exception, I had the pleasure of conversing with each individual. The one exception is the cow painting, which was bought while I was away helping at another sales area. I have to say that this picture has always pleased viewers. It was a pleasure to paint under the gentle guidance of Susan Mauck in her painting class at the Stutz ArtSpace
My biggest regret from this show, was not establishing any means of contacting any of these buyers in the future. While many viewers took business and postcards away from my booth, during all the pressure of preparation for this exhibit, I omitted to attach to the back of many of my painting, my usual 4x6 marketing card, with a thumbnail of the painting, title, size and description, plus my contact information.
It is all a learning experience (including creating the art-I am glad to say).
