Exciting Week Part II

by Jacki Newell on 2/23/2012 9:01:14 AM

This post is by guest author, Jacki Newell.  This article has been edited and published with the author's permission. You should submit an article and share your views as a guest author by clicking here. We've promoted this post to feature status because it provides great value to the FineArtViews community.  If you want your blog posts listed in the FineArtViews newsletter with the possibility of being republished to our 17,000+ subscribers, consider blogging with FASO Artist Websites.  This author's views are entirely her own and may not always reflect the views of BoldBrush, Inc.

 

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 WatsonLeslie Saeta and Dreama were right about newsletters!!

 

Here are two that sold this week-

 

 

"Love that Dress"

12x12 oil

SOLD

 

 

"Main Street in December"

12x12 oil

SOLD

I love reading happy art sales stories; many congrats, and the paintings are delightful, with lively brushwork and sense of light!

Congratulations Jacki! It's such a wonderful surprise when something like that happens - unexpected and exciting. Looking at your paintings, I can see why. I have had unexpected things happen after sending out a Newsletter, so I feel it is time well spent too. Newsletters are an important piece of the puzzle.

What a success story. I can see why your paintings sold. They are wonderful.

Wonderful! Congratualtions! Great work,too. One never knows what will sell and how. I had recently put a painting in a pile of "to-do-overs" when that night I got an email that it was sold- glad I didn't touch it. When the buyers got it they called it "Amazing!" Well, I was the one amazed!

Very nice paintings. Congratulations on the sales and on following through in spite of the feelings of discouragement.

Good for you!!!

Many congratulations and God Bless!

Jacki, Your article is so delightful, especially in this "down economy," when very few artists are selling and art galleries are going out of business. Your paintings are excellent, so well done.

Congratulations, Jacki! The atmosphere in that winter scene is amazing!

I too have been questioning my newsletters lately. However, I have been finally seeing gains from all the work that I've been putting in on my blog and facebook, so I've been thinking about it the same way. It's something you keep putting out there because you never know when the right person is going to look at it at the right time. Some people are hit immediately by your work and others have a slow build up. But if you aren't there they'll never see you. So it can't hurt.

Jacki, no wonder they sold. They are beautiful! Yes, sometimes it gets frustrating and you feel like you are not only wasting your time, but others' time, too. But, every now and then someone writes back and says how much they enjoy the newsletters or how the art tips mean so much. Then, I'm back at my computer excited to write the next one! Yes, Clint, Leslie and Dreama ARE right. Thanks for your encouraging post.

Judy Mudd

Yes, and Sandra, I've been there, too. Had a painting on my website that I felt I had developed beyond, that it wasn't up to my current abilities and decided to remove it. The next day I had a new student in class and they said they "just loved it, couldn't take their eyes off it." What??? Then others chimed in, "loved it too." Really??? They didn't know I had removed it. It's back on. ;o)

Congratulations! Thank you for sharing your success. It keeps the rest of us motivated!
