And I’ve been remiss: I went to the Alameda Art Auction last Wednesday, and didn’t mention the results. Apparently they made a whole bunch of money, but what’s important is that my print SOLD! It had a couple bids, and went for $30! Am I pleased? You bet!
I was hanging around the cashier table waiting to say hi to B (she organized it, so she was busy until practically everyone else left), when I heard her say, “Would you like to meet the artist? He’s standing right over there.” And she points to me. One of the students bought my piece, and so I went over and shook hands with him and his Mom, and congratulated him on his auction win. He seemed a little in awe (I get that a lot), but it was pretty cool to be the Artist To Meet.
