Spring Exhibition

The Artist's Cat
Graphite, 9 x 12, Bristol Smooth
Copyright Jeanette Jobson 2007

Of the four pieces that I put into the Art Association's Spring Exhibition, just one sold and not the one that I expected. I had the House Mouse in the show for a very reasonable price and expected it to go, but I still have it. Everyone loved the mouse but didn't buy it. Instead the image of Tripod sold. That's just fine with me, but I did rather like that drawing and its always with a little regret that I part company with a piece of art. Its like saying goodbye to a friend.

There was a range of art at the exhibition, with most pieces being done in acrylic and a lot of traditional Newfoundland scenes. It was interesting to see others work and talk to other artists. I look forward to contributing more and taking part in the Art Association. Its been too long since I was involved in an organization like this. My workplan for 2007 is slowly coming together in terms of art. Perhaps in June I'll do a check on my wish list and see where I stand and how much I have or have not accomplished. It should be interesting to track it.

I'm not surprised this one sold. It is absolutely filled with character. That look he has of adoration. We had a 14 yrs old Goldent Retriever that looked at my husband with those same eyes. He felt the same about her and her ashed will be buried with him. His orders.

Well done on the sale. You've obviously discovered the secret mantra "Cats sell well, cats sell well"!
