"Pickup Shed" - 18" x 24" - oil
This piece will be a part of my show in Nashville next month. Like every show, I'd like to put together a body of work that appeals to both myself and the viewing public. With this particular show, the owner of the gallery would like to see a lot of Nashville landmarks. Of course the owner is thinking about what has the best chance of selling. I've learned that you just can't predict what will sell. It's almost impossible. Last month a painting of a garage in a Virginia neighborhood sold because the color palette reminded the patron of her trip to Greece. What are the odds. Day in and day out I have to remind myself not to paint something because it will sell, but to do it because it moves me. Every now and then I can find a happy medium where everyone is pleased.
