Actually got a LOT of great feedback from the opening. You start to get jaded over your own work after a while...so to see others reaction...well....helps quite a bit to keep things in perspective.

Actually...no sales yet. This is more of a test for me than any thing else...I might be pricing myself out of that areas market with my large prints. I know they sell to businesses for the prices I am asking. Have another order coming up as well.

We shall see....

Thanks for the feedback. I just was wondering if youre selling any of that work. I'd find it hard to resist if I saw it and had the money, i'd buy!

I'm sure there's enough market in that area, it's just getting those images in front of those people with deep pockets and a love for the region!

Like I said, I love your work roman. . .

I never did answer this Tony. It became rather a bit of a problem. I sold more peices than any other arist through christmas season. I came over to pick up my art work Jan 2nd and they said they would have my check in a week. I stopped by a few days later to ask some questions, and the place was EMPTY. They pulled up roots and left. Other artists also didnt get paid, AND thier work dissapeared.

I at least collected what didnt sell. :~(

Lesson learned.

Roman,
and what, specifically, was the lesson learned? That you can't trust anyone? That hard work is its own reward? That honesty in today's world is an antiquated concept?

I'm very sorry for what happened but what alternatives do you have for getting your money back and what exactly did you take away from this experience that could possibly be considered a positive?

Jim

I learned that I have to be very careful with whom I trust my work to.

I learned that my work is accepted by the community despite the gallery not passing those funds they voted with in my direction.

I learned that small to medium gallerys are not my target market.

I learned to pick up and move on in the face of such dishonesty. And I guess in that note, I learned a lot more than they did.

Congrats Roman, this is something so many strive for and so few attain, your awesome tree is just the right selection, red is an attention grabber and you certainly have done that and more.

Randall, thanks...this is a WAY old thread that I responded to. If you read on you find out it didnt turn out as expected.

Currently I am working with TIS graphics downtown and they are sprucing up the building and opeing up the windows so I can put my work in there.

TIS, Art Media and I are going to all start working together and see if we can pool our resources and make a go of it.

And so there were, in fact, many positives out of such a negative. I knew you had moved on. I never doubted that you would. It just p***es me off that people would take advantage of others in such an organized and callous way.

Thanks for the answers. And good luck with all future adventures.

Jim
