I had a great surprise in the mail on Friday. Remember I had entered 2 paintings in a gallery show a few weeks ago? Well, according to their show prospectus, notifications would be sent out the end of this week. Lo and behold, I got the letter that both were accepted a week early. Now I have to mat and frame them up. Not a huge deal because I can cut the mats myself, but they want them framed under plexiglass and I don’t know where I will get that. The good thing is I have over a month to figure it out. I plan to hand deliver the two and make a day of it to take some more small town architectural photos. It has been a long time since I did that – well before I got my digital camera in 2005. That should prove fun too.
I think of the two, I like the artist’s studio better. The works will be for sale with a commission to the gallery, but what the heck. I think the exposure will be good and if I can get some additional architectural commissions out of it, so much the better. Selling them would be a bonus.
