Yippee Skippee!

So, the good news is we really did sell our work.  Ric will be giving us the final count early next week.  The other  really good news is I received a call from an artist/designer who is interested in taking the remaining work on consignment.  She has been very encouraging, likes our work and  has some great ideas about finding new homes for our castings, trees and canopies.

If it works, it will be a great solution  - like, for one,  not having to pay to ship everything home to Boize-wah- and not having to find a new shipping container.  But, best of all,  it will help us get our art out in the market - which means we probably  won't be taking early retirement, but we  can recover some costs of participating in ArtPrize and the hours we've spent making the work.

Selling art  is tough - and having a champion and agent will be a dream come true.  We'll be working out the details in the next few days.

Meanwhile, we're on our way to ISU this week-end for our closing reception and tear down of the exhibition.  It'll seem so easy to wrap it up and just pack it in our cars for the four hour drive home.

So long Grand Rapids, Pocatello here we come.  The show will have a four week rest and then it's off to Lewis and Clark.  Guess this all means I'm an artist!!!!  Hey, I've still got my ArtPrize bracelet to prove it . . .

These guys wear theirs on their left wrists, too!
