An International Sale!

I was always taught not to brag on myself, but I just have to brag about this one. This little 6"x 6"  painting (see below) that I painted right after my Qiang Huang workshop. I painted it from one of the photos I took from the riverboat we rode on from Guilin to Yangshao on our trip in China last September. It sold to a delightful Russian lady currently living in Israel. She told me that she would be moving back to Moscow next summer. So this is the first painting that I've sold internationally to someone I did not already know. It sold through Daily Paintworks (as most of my paintings that sell, do) and it garnered at least 4 different bidders who bid a total of 18 times before it sold. I know that is not all that big of a deal compared to some of Qiang's paintings, but it's the first time I've had that much interest in one of my paintings, so it was a really big deal to me. Now if I could only find the time to paint every I promised myself I would this year. Life sure gets in the way.

  1. Congrats. It's a nice painting. I can see why it attracted interest. I just joined DPW this month, so maybe someday I'll be just as good as you. :)

  2. Thank you Dave. I checked out your paintings on Daily Paintworks. If you only joined this month, you've sure been busy. I specially like your apple paintings. Looks like you're already sold quite a few too, congratulations yourself!
