Another Day, Another Sale

Tonight was "costume night" at the Seattle Erotic Art Festival and the Official Opening Night for the public. My good friend Ron Baylor accompanied me. I wore my good ol' chaps and a leather vest (and froze on the cab ride over). Ron wore jeans, boots, and a beautiful longsleeved shirt made completely of stainless-steel chain mail. He made quite the splash, collecting compliments from staff and attendees alike. I told him he should have just stood in a corner with a price tag on the wall nearby. Ah, art. He found a nice vintage-style nude photo he just HAD to have, and I just smiled and watched him get $250 poorer. But it's a lovely piece he'll pick up on Sunday when the show ends.

And someone else will go home with another work of mine--another entry of mine sold:"Fluor Essence," a photo of Mark Bryant, my personal trainer. I'm thrilled, as this will help pay back all the money I spent framing the pieces. It also feels validating personally and artistically.

Two other framed photographs remain unsold--one in the auction (which happens Saturday night) and another hanging in the main show, which also happens to be the most expensively priced. Time will tell. But this means I also have to scramble tomorrow to get some photos framed and ready for the post-SEAF show at Art/NotTerminal gallery on April 8. I'm feeling an nice forward inertia, and I want to make the most of it.

Right now, I just need sleep...
