Southern Hospitality sold! It is always lovely when someone responds to my work with enough commitment they want to take it to live with them. And when they chose a favorite, it is even better.
One of the traditions I started is that when I sell a full size piece of art, i buy art from another artist - either directly or in a gallery. This time I fell in love with jewelry by Michael Michaud for Silver Seasons. It is inspired by the vivid purple bean of the lablab purpureus, known at the Purple Hyacinth - a vine.
The beans are purple hand cast glass supported by patinaed bronze.Wearing a seed form really appeals to me. Love the shapes and the color (not showing well in my photo) is great.
How do you celebrate?
Now that's a great idea, Nancy -- 'art for art'. Having just sold a piece, and having to spend 3 days at an art show next weekend (awwww!), I have no doubt I too can find just the right thing to celebrate. :-)ReplyDelete
I highly recommend it. Have a great time.ReplyDelete
Southern Hospitality is just beautiful. The colors glow!ReplyDelete
hmm, I've never actually sold one of my art quilts, but whenever I sell a piece of jewelry I tend to buy more materials to make more art -- either quilts or jewelryReplyDelete
for me it's more about the creating than the having, so I'm not good at buying art
I need to think about this more
Congratulations Nancy! I think you should celebrate by going to the SAQA conference in Santa Fe-see you there!ReplyDelete
Bev, I figure that artists need to support artists when we can.ReplyDelete
Jenny, wish I could. They filled up before I could make a commitment. DH was supposed to be operated on this spring and would have been still recuperating. Surgery got postponed but too late for Santa Fe.
I am looking for something special and arty to do however -- something that still has openings.
Congratulations Nancy! And I love the tradition of celebration that you use. Think I'll adopt it for myself. FrankiReplyDelete
