Last saturday, I decided to flex my art salesman muscles and reserve a table for the 1 day art show at a local market in downtown Santa Fe. It was a bit chilly, around 45, but it was sunny all day. I got to meet this jeweler who was selling her goods (jewelry, folks) next store to me. Very organized and successful and what she does, she helped me organize a bit, organizing my paintings on the tables in front of me. I also had some smaller unframed paintings in a basket and titled it “Josh’s Little Jems”. I think it worked, I sold 4 paintings that day! None of my framed works sold, but there wasn’t many people. When the warmer temps come, that’s when I’ll have a better shot. It was a good day, I communicated well with the clients, a couple of clients were from South Carolina, another named Will from Lubbock, TX. He kindly wrote a quote I put on the store site. Even a couple in Santa Fe who I completed a mural last summer came back and bought a small painting too! It was the first time I made a decent profit at a show like this. I got my face sunburned, but I got over it. Bring the suntan lotion next time! I just painted a bunch of smaller works that I will post in the coming days, to bring more works to my store and improve on my skills is very important. It’s great to be a productive artist!
