|The first piece I sold – a painting by Carol Turner|
We had the place looking nice – William did an awesome job fixing the walls (they had several issues), painting them (white with burgundy and gold trim), and the artists started bringing in their artwork on Nov. 1st – 3rd: Pat Weaver, Carol Turner, Kathy Phillips, all of whom I met and knew from the Coquille Valley Art Center, and Rachel Smith, whom I met recently. What was so funny, is that Carol and Rachel brought their artwork in the same day, Rachel saw a painting that Carol did and bought it! I earned a commission and had my first sale even before I opened! I opened up Monday the 6th and someone came in and bought one of Pat’s paintings she saw in our window! My 2nd sale the first day I opened! It is so obvious God has planted us here and we will thrive!
