Red Letter Day.

Today I sold Eight Paintings.

 



A red letter day (sometimes hyphenated as red-letter day or called scarlet day in academia) is any day of special significance.  Wikepedia.

I think selling eight paintings in one day is a red letter day.  Last one for me was passing my 11 plus.  That was actually the first red letter day when I realised, Hey I can do this.

The two above were sold.    I am still in shock.  And the two below.




Plus four others.  My euphoria at this is .....

........Not helped by the fact that I have three exhibitions in September signed up for and therefore some challenge, one such wanting work on Wednesday.

And, just in case HMRC are looking at my blog I have spent far more than sales on paint, paper, mounts and framing. And, so far, I do not think I can be taxed on the feel good factor. (and I have the invoices to prove it.)

But, oh boy, the feel good factor outweighs just about everything.......
