After it was all said and done I had sold 12 paintings! What a great day! I was very proud, and humbled by the sales. Thrilled as well because it is a wonderful feeling to know that there is people out in the real world that are enjoying my work as much as I enjoy painting it.
I have all kinds of plans in my mind and new canvases to start on. I feel refreshed and able to go on to new and exciting things. In an earlier post I had made a comment about someone suggesting if I wanted to get into the art world here in my city I would have to volunteer . This person said I could help park cars at a fall event that was coming up. yes you saw that right, I could help park cars! I have been asked to do many things in my life but I was truly insulted by this. I am not a Vallet, I am an Artist! I think my very successful Art Show and Sale was proof of that.
Believe in what you do! If you don't believe in yourself then your dreams won't come true. Don't let people get you down. Don't let negative people keep you down.
