Thank You

My last post had some great comments by some people doing 
great art.  Art that I respect, otherwise I wouldn't return to their blogs.
I think that now that I have gone ahead and signed up for a few shows,
I'll just let it play out for what it is.  I've have to lay out some cash
for tent and display system but I'll try to live up to Sarahs expectation
that I'll do a good job - Get some contacts, sell a few, perhaps uplift
my marketing brain. Already, I'm printing, matting, cutting frames,
creating a new biography. This might be a journey that reminds me
why I hate art fairs.  For now I'll go with it this summer and see if 
it leads to a more promising land.  I'm posting an older work created
four years ago.  The strange thing about this is that I have used digital
pieces of this work to create others

Well, whatever happens you can say, Been there, done that, and tick it off your list. On the other hand you never know if just that one right person comes along and becomes a valuable contact.

A old friend of mine that used to own a gallery went to fairs just to scout and often brought in new artists or bought work to resell. So they can be great networking opportunities.

Wow Bill, I believe if I have a very favorite of yours, this would be it! I love everything about it.

And good for you...Art fairs need something a little different like your work..I think you'll do great.

This is a really beautiful piece, Bill. It just shows how talented you are. My sense is that the art market, as far as galleries go, is very flat (or dead) now. I don't know about the fairs, perhaps the summer weather will entice people to spend their tax refunds on something really valuable, like art. But just hang in there, we're all rooting for you :) Talent and vision will win out eventually over the trite and predictable (I do believe that).

Sandy makes a great point, I think. What's that saying about being the change you want to see in the world? When you put yourself out there, surprises--good ones!--can come to you. I would never have thought I'd meet so many and such various talented artists who would be so kind as to help me on my way ... it's been a very rewarding experience!

Love this work Bill. And good luck with all your endeavors!!! Just go with the may be pleasantly surprised. And if not, all experience is good experience :)
