Disappointing, I didn’t sell any of my actual art. I sold enough earrings, necklaces to cover the fee, plus some. This is when the negative thoughts start. No one likes my work, it’s no good. I’m wasting my time…… Please feel free to disagree!
There were some enthusiastic viewers and some positive reactions, for example a woman was looking at the series I did for Valentines day made with a red circuit board behind laser cut hearts in wildly colored collaged wood. She said “Oh these are great, I work in Pulmonary Medicine.” “Would look great in your office” said I, to no avail. I offered the small piece for a discount of $20 and she still didn’t take it.
Turns out pulmonary is lungs not hearts (cardiac) … but she brought it up!
