Several days ago I received a "convo" to my Etsy shop about one of my paintings, "Afternoon". It was from a prospective buyer from Milano, Italy. She was interested in purchasing the painting but wanted more information about it and how I would ship it to her if she did buy it. Needless-to-say, I was very excited about this as I hadn't sold a painting this size before much less "internationally"!
We exchanged convos back and forth over last two days and...this afternoon she bought it! Wow!!! Now...I will miss this painting as it's one of my favorites but I know that it is going to someone who will appreciate and enjoy it as much as I have. ( I have had to come up to speed very quickly on how to ship a painting so not only did I make a sale, I also learned a lot that will come in handy in the future!)
It is snowing, snowing, snowing in my part of the world today. All very pretty...and since I don't have to go out into it unless I want to... I should be enjoying it...sitting in front of my fireplace with a good book, cup of hot chocolate...but I'm not. What I really need is some time in the sun!! I came down to my basement studio this afternoon to "mess around with paint", do some blogging, etc. This is when I checked my Etsy postings and saw her purchase. Not the warm sun I need...but real close!! Now...where are my paints??
