The Art Opening Was a Success

The opening reception for my first solo art exhibit and sale was a wonderful success, if I do say so myself.

This painting is my favorite, but somehow I found the guts to offer it for sale. To my happy surprise a good friend snapped it up. Now I can visit my “baby” whenever I visit my friend. What a relief!

All together eight pieces were sold. One large work was purchased before I even arrived that night, which was another nice surprise.

Can you imagine how I felt to find out one of my paintings was sold before I even arrived for the event? Shocked to say the least. I really liked this one, too.

It was a wonderful party with friends, family, and art lovers. The appetizer platters were lovely, the wines and sodas flowed. People were happy and upbeat. Celebratory sentiments and congratulations were many. Attendees brought flowers, and notes of good luck, success, congrats.

It was all well worth the hard work of curating and preparing my own artwork. Certainly, I learned a lot about setting up the show, and about myself.

I can do it and it can be good.
