Today was day two of my volunteer shifts for The Northville Art House during their biggest fundraiser of the year -- Arts & Acts. Again today, I did some gallery sitting and talked to a whole bunch of lovely people who came to see "West of Center".
Again today, I was very pleased to be be able to hang out at the Art House with the new Art House Store Mangager Patti Witte. I am really enjoying getting to spend time with Patti and getting to know her.
But the best thing that happened today -- my piece from West of Center sold! I won't go into details because I don't have the new owners' permission(s) but I just want to express how thrilled I am -- this is so out of the blue and SO appreciated! First -- I am ecstatic that someone liked Quillz enough to want to purchase him. Second -- I worked very very hard on Quillz and I am very happy that someone who can appreciate that is taking him home. Third -- although I have sold artwork in the past, I don't recall ever selling a piece of my art directly from the show that it was in. Fourth -- I am very pleased that the Northville Art House is getting a percentage of my sale...I love the Art House and I really believe in it and everything the Art House is about. Fifth -- I am just SO happy!!!
