Wedding House: SOLD!
today is the last day of Gloucester's Sidewalk Bazaar. i have been showing some of my paintings on the sidewalk in front of Bananas. yesterday i sold 2 paintings, the one above and its companion The Wedding Reel. these two works were part of the series of paintings that i did for the Peabody Historical Society's "historic interpretation" show last year. the paintings are the most non-traditional works i offered up for sale, the others are oils of the beacon marine basin, magnolia harbor, a few still life. i overheard someone describing this painting and its companion as 'weird'. heh. what do you know, these two 'weird' works are the ones that sold.
note to self: don't listen to the naysayers. always trust my gut.
and i sold a photograph the day before! now i can fix my truck.
