What makes me feel even better is one afternoon when I get a phone call and someone would like to buy one of my paintings. It is a small series of houses, four in all, they are each painted in a different season. I am ecstatic! My first sale to some complete stranger! That is very important that they do not know me and means a lot to me.
I am now a member of the Corvallis Art Guild. There are several venues around town that have new artist hanging their paintings each month. I decide to just do it, forget about thinking it all over and tossing and turning about the whole thing. Just do it.
