Reports from San Francisco, the show I missed last week, were mixed if not bad.
I steeled myself and was frankly prepared for the worst.
Let the chips fall and take your lumps like a man.
Lo and behold, the show was scary good, maybe the best ever for me at this locale.
A couple great clients came through in a big way.
Ten paintings sold in the first hour, all substantial.
While it slowed down a little, buying continued throughout the weekend, culminating in the largest monetary sale of my show in the last ten minutes.
I restocked every morning and am now faced with a new problem.
All of my best merchandise is gone and how will I find great paintings again to replace them? Sold all my best stuff.
It actually is not easy finding good material right now and I don't want to press. Will see what the universe delivers. I did manage to find some wonderful things at the show to purchase.
But bye bye Braun, Fries, Bischoff, Orrin White, Sayre, Milholme, Hudson, Geerts and Koller. It was nice having you around and you will be missed. Thanks to all of my clients, my promoter and my fellow dealers. Hang in there, all, it can always get better.
