Last week I used this platform to wallow in self-pity and whine a bit about no one wanting to buy my artwork. Ironically, late that very afternoon the gentleman who owns a print gallery down the street came in and bought my first collage–one that I’d never titled and hadn’t photographed but was artfully framed. And then yesterday one of the city councilpersons bought my collage version of a topographical map of Stone Mountain. She wants it customized to show where her house is located, so after my exhibit at ART Station closes on August 18, we will undo the framing and carefully paste on a little sign.
(Someone recently saw this collage on exhibit and inquired why I had created a collage of a sweet potato! Ha!)
Anyway, maybe I need to swallow my words and remember what a virtue is patience.
