sold a collage... I have to say this is the first of my Zen Collages [size 20X16 or 16X20} to sell!

I was waiting to take them down and getting the boxes ready at the Shoreline Forrest Park Arts Commission Gallery.

A shopper/client was picking out some things. Carla said to her, this is one of our artists.

Carol, shopper said "which ones", so I was showing her some of my details like handmade paper, hand cast faces, and here's Suminagahshi, Japanese paper marbling... its the piece on the left in this image - Qualitative
She said "I didn't even see them as I was looking at the items on the floor."

She finishes her purchases but asks "how big is that piece, I have my tape with me." So they went to measure as I said 16HX20..

"I think I have the perfect spot for this. How long is going to be here, I can check it on Monday."

I said I was taking them down as I had an exhibit to hang on Monday.

She said... "let me get my color sample kit, I live close by..." within 10 minutes she was back and the colors went well - ta Dah...

there was some other additional chatting about how peaceful the design was, etc...

So its going in her foyer and will be the first thing her guests see!!!!

a happy customer! happy artist and happy Carla!

so a whole lotta Happy was going on!!!!So here's the great story -
