Beautiful painting.  I love O'Keefe style... probably her skulls are what I find attractive.

I have painted a skull, no cactus, based on one of her painting but without the flower she had in her original painting.  Wonder if I can post it if I say it was a 'study painting'... but then again I don't want to venture in the gray zone of copyright laws.

Thanks, Annie! And if you're not planning on selling your painting, do post it. No copy right issues to be concerned about!
Cheers,
Sharon

And this painting has sold - and it's now called "Cactus & Skull"! It was part of my email blast that went out today about my art show tomorrow, and someone emailed me just now to buy it, sight unseen!!
Cheers,
Sharon

Hmmm...as you say, Sharon, it was a learning experience.  We can also benefit from your experience.

Happy that the coaster sales are moving right along.  I use mine every night and think of you.

Sorry to hear this Sharon, but you did get the presales, so that's a plus.  O0

 :o Tough going.  :( Rude of the organization not to promote you more since you were supporting their event. Infuriating, deflating, disappointing .... time consuming....  :thumbdown: But who knows... maybe nobody bought at the show but perhaps your name will register and bring in customers to other events. :gl2: for the future.

I love your positive perspective Linley - thank you for that!!! The lady from the bank yesterday sent me an email apologizing for the lack of sales from her team/customers. She realizes she should have done a better job promoting the art sales. Anyway, you live and you learn. Now onward ho!
