I Sold My First Piece of Art

Initially I was excited to find out that one of the two pieces of mixed media art I placed in a local store sold! WOW! That is so cool that someone liked it enough to pay for it. Most of the pieces I have ever made (well all of them) I just give away as gifts.

But then I was suddenly sad that it was gone. Is that weird? Maybe because I really don't have a good grasp of scanning my art (because of the dimension) that I don't have all that great image of it to use again on a notecard or whatever in the future. Any tips on that would be greatly appreciated!!

So here are some photos of the piece I sold. It was a 12x12 canvas.

I just love this saying and felt it should look whimsical. It turns out the principal at Ben's middle school bought it for her niece. So I think it is pretty cool someone will have this hanging on their wall. yay!


  1. Kirsten, what a great piece! I have a lot of other art friends who say the same thing - it is bittersweet when they sell a piece they've put so much of themselves into. A couple of my friends make giclees of their favorite pieces and sell those but keep the originals. Maybe that might help? Thanks for sharing your amazing talent!

    1. Thank you for your sweet comments, Dawn! I have struggled with finding an affordable way to make prints that capture the dimension. I would love any resources!

  2. I LOVE this piece!! You are so talented! You must be enjoying the process -- it shows through :-)
