So this is a mixed-media piece that I created several years ago. Sorry for the glare on the photo. FH is a member of our wonderful local art collective, ArtJam, at Rhythmix Cultural Center in Alameda. They had a group show on Friday night–the theme was “The Life Aquatic.” So I slipped this little piece in…and then, of course, I worried about it. Was I crashing the show? Was I a “real” artist? Anyway…it turned out that my piece was the only one in the show that sold that night! I couldn’t believe it. FH priced it quite high. I am in shock. My art sold! I’ve sold jewelry before, but not art. This spins everything around…as I try to find my way to a life path that is easier than public school teaching, this seemed like a little wink from the universe.
