Hey guys, I haven't been around much lately due to my new RVing obsession or whatever you want to call it. Thank you again Susan, see you on the road some day :-) Anyway, I went to a cookout yesterday and my cousin brought some of his paintings over to show me and of course I had to go and get some of mine to show. Rather than put them back in my car I decided to spread them around for everyone to see. Wouldn't you know, someone came up to me and asked to buy one!:surprise::biggrin: I got $40 for an 11x14 on stretched canvas. I'm also finding time to work on my sailboat painting here and there. So back to the easel!!
This one.

Thank you all. Now I know how to sell them. Apparently the trick is to get them in front of people :-)
