This is the first time that I’ve shown in a cafe, and it’s been a great experience. As you can see from the photos, they use wires for hanging the art. If you’ve ever hung art on wires, you’ll know that the pictures end up tilting forward because of the way they balance when there’s no wall right behind them. I added an extra wire to the top of the Theda Bara painting so that it would hang straight, but the rest I left as-is. Since we needed to hang them kind of high, the tilt isn’t very noticeable when you’re standing in front of them.
Seven Virtues used to be our neighborhood cafe at our last house, but we still frequent it because they have awesome coffee and a great staff. So go on down to the cafe, have some delicious coffee, and check out my paintings!
I keep telling people that, with my creative life, I’m doing the “crawl, walk, run” thing, and right now I’m still in the phase where I’m learning to crawl. I’ve been painting a long time, but I’ve never tried to sell prints on Etsy. It seems like everything I’m doing is a learning experience, and I’m having to be OK with some things being less than perfect.
I’m getting prints together for selling at Seven Virtues and will also be filling out my Etsy store some. Of course, I’m also working on more paintings. My very exciting May 2015 gallery show is coming soon, and I’ll be announcing the details of that soon.
