2 gone and 1 commission

Just another Friday... I received a message of a brand new facebook friend who asked me if it was ok to come to my studio and see my work this Friday. 
Of course it is... I actually love that - seeing people outside the Art Walks because it is much more relaxed. 

I was painting when he and his partner walked in, they looked around and we started talking... and soon enough it became clear to me that they were collectors and owning a gallery. They contacted me because of a very dear friend of mine (and major fan of my work) who recommended me to them... So there I am wrapping my head around it - because I actually didn't see that coming at all - and in the meanwhile they start happily shopping among my pieces.

The result is: 2 pieces sold, 1 commission and possibly a contract for shows in the Middle East.

Little M 11
aka Little Charlie
6" x 8"
Acrylics on Birch Wood

Little Andy with  Bananas

What can I say other than... Just another Friday but a pretty AMAZING one.

  2. Congrats!! I don't know anyone who has had a show in the Middle East.

    1. Me neither RK... but if all goes well I will hang there with some of my fellow artists from Miami. Come to think of it... A Dutch artist (me) working in Miami contracted by a fellow from Corsica to show in Dubai.... lol
