My 1st Gallery Sale

In our town there is an art gallery of sorts in the corridor of our local hospital and every 2 months you are allowed to submit 3 pieces . . . I decided to give it a try 4 months ago.

When I went in yesterday to pick up my previous 3 submissions and to give them 3 more, I discovered much to my surprise and delight that this one sold last week!!! Yahooo!!

I was very hesitant at first but my husband, who is a true painter and artist, told me that art is not confined to a particular medium or defined style and that like beauty, it's often in the eye of the beholder --- that gave me the nerve courage to be brave and allow myself to try new things!!

Congratulations, Dallas! I quite agree with your husband's definition of art. And your piece is just lovely! Thank you so much for your Thanksgiving wishes ~ all the more thoughtful since you celebrate in a different month.

By the way - your crafting area is a thing of beauty, too. I love seeing all those white cubbies lined up ... so very organized.

Jodi,

Thanks for your kind words regarding this piece as well as my crafting area :o)

My husband's definition of art really helped me allow myself to try whatever I wanted and just see what happened ... so did the quote on the top right side of this blog!!

Blessings to both of you ...
