I continue to be amazed at what people say at an art show while they're in your booth looking at your work. Let's face it: it's a small space! You can hear everything - the good, the bad, and the unusual.
(Insert drumroll here). . . here are my "top ten" conversations, questions, and comments overheard in my art booth in 2015:
- "I hate to admit it, but I DO like these colors."
- "We hung your painting above my easy chair. Anytime I'm sitting there, my wife often looks over and smiles at me. I thought she was looking at me. Turns out she was looking at your art."
- "Are you related to Elon Musk?"
- "I'm glad you didn't put any birds in this - - that would have really screwed it up."
- "Now this is work you can look at for a long time. You can just sip your wine and keep discovering something new. Pointing to a larger sized painting: I'd need a whole bottle for that one".
- "That orange reminds me too much of the countertop in my Mother's home. I don't want that orange in my house."
- "I can see why you won an award; they're very beautiful."
- "I thought Tesla was a car."
- Lady in my booth picking out a few paintings. Her husband is outside of the booth with his arms folded, and says: "Do I need to hold your wallet for you honey?"
- "Where are you from?" (me: Atlanta) "So, what do you do in Atlanta?"
