Art Exhibition and Musings



Finally, for the first time, my paintings stepped out of my house and got showcased. :) :)  This happened on the occasion of Women's Day which was celebrated in our apartment complex yesterday. Here I am at my stall with acrylic paintings on display. I enjoyed the whole time, and to my happiness, four of my paintings got sold with a few more in waiting list. A small step in the art world, but a boost to my confidence. The plusses were great- got many appreciations, got to know many other artists in our community, some approached me for commissioning big pieces for their homes, many mothers approached me to start classes for kids etc.. etc...I felt a bit overwhelmed. Got me thinking after I came home. There were so many opportunities beckoning me in this field! Should I paint to sell or to please myself? What I like to paint as an artist need not necessarily be liked by buyers. Should I paint big or small? Many people preferred large size art for their drawing rooms!  I'm not sure yet.  One day, I know I'll have to strike a balance... But as of now, I will paint for the joy of it and will be happy if something good comes out of it in the process.
Here are a few other pictures and peek into my stall...
