there is something rather wonderful about being chosen.
200 artists submitted. each were allowed 8 submissions. I sent along 3. I just found out that one of them was selected by the jury. I am in the show. I am in the show!!
i notched up my printing decision on this piece. I chose a small shop local printer that I know will honor my privacy. I am trying on an art paper that I’ve been curious about.
the price to print went up $6 higher than her original quote. it’s pricy!
this happened yesterday with another show i am in and a matt quote. I had to pay $9 more. I sortof feel they should honor the former price quote.
I admire those in business for themselves offering specialty services.
It feels good to give them some of my business.
i am just horrified at how much it costs.
The final and MOST amazing layer to all of this is that I had a patron fund this project.
when you take the cost of the print, the frame and matt, and shipping. both ways
plus a gallery take if sold of 50%
it’s hard to really say that a sale is lucrative.
but thanks to the patron’s help.
IF I sell this. the profits will be mine.
I sold once before with this gallery.
which felt amazing.
here is the piece they chose.
I submitted this as my alter ego.
Opportunities to show nudity don’t come my way that often
but building up my K Smith artist name will be fun!
