remember my wild bunch paintings from earlier this year?
they were part of a group exhibition at the Loading Bay in Durban.
well... it is a little "cringy" for my ego to admit but none of them sold...
so i took them back home and left them in the garage for a few months.
i unpacked them and had a good honest look at them yesterday,
and i do like them, they felt alive and wild.
it was good to see them with fresh eyes again.
i'm not sure why they didn't sell, i could come up with many reasons
and excuses but that wouldn't make a difference.
of course it has been a great learning experience,
and i learnt a few good lessons along the way.
one of them being: "don't take it personally, it is what it is,
get back up and keep going, keep showing up, keep doing what you love."
oh and i keep repeating to myself, just like on the opening night...
Brene Brown's mantra: "don't shrink, don't puff up, just stand your sacred ground."
now that i've cleared the air ;)
i have put my bouquets in my Etsy shop, it's all pretty and updated.
(PS: my feeling is that they were priced a little too high at the exhibition, so i reduced the prices slightly)
