So, this morning the phone rings and I think it's around 6:30 or so and stumbling out of bed to find the phone and see the time, I notice that it's almost 9!! Luckily, I'm off from work, but it was one of those moments when your brain is still trying to get your right foot in front of the left and any other function(s), like opening your eyes, is almost too much to ask, :P
The person on the phone was Bridgette. She was calling to let me know that she was prepping 18 of my paintings to be shipped to the law firm in Washington, D.C. She's arranged for the law firm (I keep forgetting the name) to hold the work for two weeks to see how it fits into thier space and decide which pieces they would like to purchase. She also asked me to come up with one or two-sentence blurbs to give them a sense of the inspiration for the work since neither Bridgette nor I will be there to talk about the paintings. I have to meet with her tomorrow morning at the gallery around 8:30 to do that. She's going to send me an email with all the titles and so forth so I can get a head start tonight. I remember most of the works she has, but not all.
This could turn out to be a great thing if all goes well, as in they buy all of the works. Even if they don't like *all* of them, and still purchase some, I'll be happy. This is potentially my first corporate collection that I can put on my resumé and that's exciting. I'll certainly have more incentive and funds to replenish my inventory in the coming months. This is certainly one more good step towards realizing my goal of becoming a self-sufficient artist.
Mmmmmm...art supplies, more paintings...drool
