Been busy this Summer, had an exhibition held at the house garden that consisted of new work under the SUMMER theme, 12 pieces in total. It was open for two days, few people came on the first day but the next day was better. The next day was better since I managed to sell 3 pieces, I made the prices affordable as well!
Then as weeks went by, managed to sell even more then and now left with just 4 pieces. Three are reserved for people who are still yet to receive and one hasn't been ordered.
After that I started to receive requests for commissions, like a birthday present for someone although I received a number of commissions from people before this exhibition happened.
Right now, I've been updating blogs such as this one and publishing a website so people can have more sources in ways to see my work and contact me if they have requests. I remember back in school, I wouldn't want to sell my art pieces because they were such a big value to me of course but now I realised something else that if I want to make a living by doing this then might as well sell to earn an income, right? ^^
They say, sell the original piece cause the value of it will become higher in the future and of course sign it hehe. I'm also doing my best to save the income that I have received till I get back to Uni.
Speaking of Uni, going back for my last year/3rd year this coming Monday. Goodness, it's nearly over o.O. But yeah, I'm struggling whether to do a dissertation aka super duper long essay or practice meaning an exhibition again. MEH, we'll see. Need to get a better understanding of it when I get back, when they explain it to us.
But for now, that's all I have to say
p.s I found out that the whole time I think I was doodling shapes, lines and repetitive patterns is actually called ZENTANGLE. Goodness.. it's annoying when you think you made something up but BOOM, it already exists. Oh well, some of my "doodles" include text so I guess it's kinda modernized? ah blah.. I'm still going to continue doing these.
