"Epiphoria"- The Soft Fade and The Pooling of Tears

in #art4 years ago

What a wonderful feeling to put that "SOLD" sign on a piece!

"Epiphoria," Acrylic on canvas, Lexie Takis, 2017

Artists! You know that feeling, right?

A friend I was long out of touch with for many years ended up running into me last May in 2017 when I was running an art show in Detroit. He was impressed with what he saw, and said he would try to make it again to another event I hosted. I thought it was a nice gesture but didn't think much of it since I had many people telling me the same thing with empty intentions. Quickly after, I had forgotten and prepared for my big gallery show in October. That night to my surprise, he showed up and immediately was taken by Epiphoria. It was a well-liked piece, and I had a few would-be buyers for it, but nobody ever bit down. A few months later, my friend he told me he was ready to purchase and collect! I was overjoyed and we met up a few days later to exchange.

He was so pleased!

There's nothing like being able to sell your work and feeling that rush of happiness and adrenaline, but it's truly a great feeling when a distant friend sees your hard work for the first time and chooses to adopt it into their life.

I've been selling stuff on eBay for quite a while. I know that feeling when you get a sale. It's intoxicating, isn't it?
