The art sale was held this morning at the Marriott Hotel. It was a very nice event, and I was very impressed with how well the art was displayed. I am very glad that I was a part of it. Two of my 6" x 6" paintings sold...one was purchased by a member of the SC Arts Commission Board, and as I discovered later, the daughter of a lady who watched me grow up at St. Thomas Lutheran Church in Chapin....the other was purchased by a member of the SC Arts Foundation Board. I am flattered that my work was purchased by these board members who are involved with supporting the arts in our state. One of the best parts of the day was having a fellow artist tell me how much she enjoys my blog. She said it was refreshing how I discuss my faith and how I write in such a positive manner...she went on to tell one of the board members that there is no arrogance in my blog. I used that opportunity to tell them that I consider my talent as a gift from God and that I give Him all the glory. I got to share my faith with several people viewing my art, and I am glad that I had that opportunity! I surely hope I will get to participate in the event next year.
