Here's the rest of the story of why last week was so great- the gallery that has my small downtown paintings sold 7 of them!!!! They hadn't even gotten them up on the wall and someone who had read in my January newsletter that I now have my work at Liz Daly Design Gallery came down to see them and bought 7 of them! Wow! I got the phone call about the sale while I was at the hospital visiting my new grandson.
Right after I sent out the newsletter, I had been feeling sorry for myself and whining to my friend that I felt like I wasted a bunch of time putting it together, but was committed to doing one each month. When I found out that the reason this person had come to the gallery to see my work was because she had read about it in my newsletter, I realized that maybe that time I spent at the computer was time well spent!! I must say that Clint Watson, Leslie Saeta and Dreama were right about newsletters!!
Here are two that sold this week-
"Love that Dress"
"Main Street in December"
