It’s difficult to describe the feeling of selling a piece of art at an exhibition. Joyous, is a good start, quickly followed by exhilarated and galvanised!
The sold piece – image on the left – is a favourite of mine. I started painting a circular shape one afternoon and it developed over a few weeks. It was the end of Summer and the colours outside were just beginning to take on an Autumnal hue.
I met the buyer briefly during a visit to the exhibition and when she explained she was thinking of buying the painting, I couldn’t speak from emotion. I left the building and cried.
