Return to the studio

Prior to leaving for Connecticut I did something I'd not done before to enable my family to continue to ship my art in my absence. I laid out a table with prints, ACEO's, cards, and postcards. I lined envelopes with board for all of my ACEO's. On one wall I hung all of my new acrylic square pieces listed in my Etsy and 1000 market shops. I created sturdy mat board portfolios with spacers for the original pastels, labeled them and placed postcards on the front, creating a lovely sturdy presentation for shipping. I prepared bubble wrap, and shipping boxes for my products. I am pleased that the shipping prep will help me to send my work in a snap! I sold several pieces while away, including a very exciting sale of 2 pieces purchased for Sony Pictures film the "Roommate". This is a note from the purchaser

Our movie is a Screen Gems production being shot at Sony Pictures Studios. It's
starring Leighton Meester from Gossip Girl, Minka Kelly from Friday
Night Lights, and Cam Gigandet from Twilight. It is about two girls who
move in together and one (Leighton's character) becomes obsessed with the other
(Minka's character).
It's a fun little thriller. :) We would be using your art in the character
Irene's apartment, which is where the final dramatic fight occurs, so it's a
good place to be.
