That first art show was quite an experience. I decided to show my painting just to get some feedback, didn’t expect much, after all I was showing my second painting I have ever created.
So, I was there just to see if what I am doing is on some level comparable in quality to what other painters are doing. I was pleasantly surprised when during the submission I received a lot of compliments, but I thought they do compliment everyone’s work, just to be polite. However I got seriously surprised when I learned next day that the organizers liked my work so much that they decided to display my paintings in the prime spot, right at the entry.
Of course, it made me feel very validated. Much more than I expected. During the show many people approached me saying how much they loved both of my paintings.
So, not only my husband and friends liked it.
Way cool 🙂
But wait – there is more.
One of my painting got sold!
Holly smoke. I know personally people who paint for years and never sell anything, and not from lack of trying, and here I come, my first show and boom. Picture sold.
