Sometimes the unexpected happens. I took a friend to see some work in a small exhibition of drawings by participants in the CHALKUP21 drawing show, which includes work by me and I ended up selling her one. This brings this year’s sales to 7, which is unprecedented. Add in the fact that I have a paid commission and I am doing quite well all in all, on this measure.
Just depressing on the health front but I’ve had a good week and started some new work in the studio. I also dug these three circular prints out of my plan chest – these were an experiment in “observational prints” – in other words done on the spot. It was a really hot day in April and the slow-drying acrylics dried up pretty immediately but I got some of it onto the paper.
