While the sale itself wasn't as well attended as we'd hoped, the folks that did come by were enthusiastic about what they saw. I was asked several times- "do you have a website or business card?" To which the answer is no. I guess I should get on that if I truly want to be a real artist when I grow up. One thing at a time though. As I'd mentioned at the conception of this blog, I'm a bit of a shy artist. This sale is only the second time I've actively showed my work in the hopes of selling it. I walked away feeling very validated and I got to spend the day with some amazingly talented folks.
Without further adieu here are some photos of the 11th & Boise Summer Art Sale:
My Shadow Plates
I carved the rim of this plate to mimic portions of the Portland Skyline. It's actually based on a sketch I did while biking along the waterfront last summer. It was my prototype and I planned to perfect it using this one as an example, but it was one of the first things I sold! So I guess I'll be starting from scratch. Not a bad problem to have.
These plates were done last minute- the last things that went in the kiln. It was pure experimentation- throwing caution to the wind and thankfully they worked out extremely well.
