At the show in San Diego on Saturday, my first sale was to a returning client who had to hunt me down. I hadn’t put my booth number on the email reminding fans about the show, so he wandered up and down the aisles. Eventually he asked help from another artist. “Do you know this artist – her work is a little like this but pixellated.” Blissfully my fellow artist knew who the cutter was and he found me a few minutes later.
He took the opportunity to pick up my second book, Mixed Weather, and really liked ‘Wiest Lake’, but at 48×48″ didn’t have the wall space for it. (Well, not without removing a portrait of his good lady. Sometimes I really don’t mind getting upstaged.) I suggested a print in a smaller size through Fine Art America, and promised to make sure my image was available for him to evaluate the options. I opened email this morning and found someone had ordered a print on metal. I’m figuring it’s the same client that found a size and surface that would fit in his home!
