Taking Stock… Again
Four days after returning from the October First Saturday Arts Market in Houston, we finally got most of the art put away. We think we had a good presentation, but we did come away doing some thinking. We’ve leaned heavily in one direction for a while, now it’s time to get some balance back into our show booth,
We love the fact that people love our whimsical pieces, but we do see a lot of people browsing through the unframed traditional work as well. We’re beginning to talk about ways to give additional weight to the traditional work, in order to better present both sides of our artistic endeavors.
The trick is how to handle the juxtaposition of whimsical art and traditional paintings. We’re already looking at booth arrangements that will allow a somewhat more balanced presentation of the work we do.
To that end, we spent part of today going through all of the show art. We did some serious culling of both traditional and whimsical work and, together, we eliminated a considerable number of pieces from our inventory. The good news is that, because we are somewhat prolific and have a large inventory, no one will notice.
Some of it was painful, but much of it was overdue.
