A Bit O' News



So there has been a bit of excitement behind the scenes of this blog... I was approached, through email, by a lovely woman in the U.K. who wanted more info. about my work. In the end she wanted to purchase two small paintings (which I have posted before) that she found in my Slide Show; "Over The Point" (top) and "Shady River" (bottom). Clearly this was extremely exciting for me and certainly unanticipated. She was very patient as I scrambled to get myself set up on PayPal and, being the incredibly non-techy person that I am, I can't believe I figured it out (with only one email to my uber-techy Brother-In-Law!). I'm now good-to-go if this situation should present itself again. I mailed the package today and my little paintings are on their way to find a new home on the walls of a little 300 year old  English cottage! Too cool!

How exciting for you! Congrats!

Linda Popple said...

She chose two beautiful paintings! Congratulations on your international sale!

Now I can promote you as my artistic sister with paintings over in Europe. Neat-o. I do love the ones she's bought - she made wise choices.
Mom was over for dinner last night and really liked the one you gave me (and the one Edward B. Gordon likes!) and where we have it hanging up. Love it.
I have been having difficult days at school and feel very close to "the edge" (tears, screaming, leaving ... all in one) so hopefully it will pass. 18 more days with kids ... but who's counting?!?!?!?

Hi Kim,

Thanks... it's true, I am still always so blown away when someone likes my work enough that they would want to live with it.

Nicki


Thanks Pam, it was a great email to find and definitely unexpected.

Nicki


Thanks Don!


Hi Janie... it has been a very exciting experience... I really had no expectation of any sales from my blog therefore I had to scurry to get PayPal set up!

Nicki


Thanks Linda,

I still have to smile at the idea of international sales! Who'd have thought?!

Nicki


Hi Jaguls!

I really had to think when I read that! I know I have a bad memory, but I couldn't recall you having that nickname!

I'm glad you like the painting... it's super cool that Edward likes it too!!! You are one of my best supporters and I love ya!

Nicki XO

P.S. You can make it... just keep your trip in mind!


Suzanne, thanks a bunch! I'm very excited... never really expected anything like this to happen. She said she would take a picture of the paintings in her cottage when they are hung and I can hardly wait!

Nicki
