It's such a compliment when a fellow artist and follower of this blog purchases a quilt! Really, it is. I'll admit to becoming somewhat discouraged at how difficult it is to find a market for my work now that I'm no longer on the quilting highway.
I investigated Etsy and was shocked when over 2,500 items came up when I searched for wall art quilts. Yikes..... Over and over and over I've been told photos do not do my work justice.....embellishments make that difficult, even for professional photographers. So, placing work in galleries is helpful. However, most not only charge 50% commission, but some also charge a rental fee for their space..... That certainly elevates the price of ones' work! What's a gal to do??
Well....I'm going to pull up those big girl panties and keep working at finding venues!!
Thank you Lucina for selecting this quilt to purchase as your own birthday present!!
Preparing my quilt inventory paperwork and updating my shop has been on my 'to-do' list for awhile. I've added quite a few more pieces to my online shop.....here's a sample of just a few. Jump over there to browse.......
