The transition from being a Gallery artist to selling directly to my collectors is an emotional one. Not only have I had great success with the galleries that I have shown in, but I have created lifelong friendships with the owners of the three galleries that I have been with the longest. The change is hard, easy, scary, exciting, challenging....all rolled into one big ball of emotion.
I have been wanting to make some changes for a very long time, mostly I let the notion lay quietly in the back of my thoughts, but it kept calling and when the voice was loud enough I didn't have a choice. It was time to take the leap of faith required and jump into the deep end.
If you have been an admirer, or collector of my work, I would love to hear from you. If you have a painting on display and you feel like sharing please send a photo or two!
