Red dots for everyone

Standard

About a month ago, I wrote a post about the coveted “red dot”… the mark a gallery puts on a painting’s title when it sells but before they take it down to deliver it to a collector.  I had one sale or “red dot” at the Madelyn Jordon Fine Art Gallery‘s  “Summer Remix” group exhibition this summer.  I just got the good news that another painting of mine at the exhibition has sold.  Another  red dot!  I love those little suckers!  I wish I could pass out red dots for everyone!

It never even made it on the wall

I recently delivered a painting to the Madelyn Jordon Fine Art Gallery for inclusion in their “Summer Remix” group exhibition that opened last week.  As luck would have it, I ran into a friend who wanted to buy it two days before the opening.  They displayed the painting at the opening anyway but with the coveted red dot on the information label.  For those who don’t know, when a painting sells in a gallery/exhibition, the curator/sales staff will paste a little red dot on the painting’s information label to show that it has already been sold.  I LOVE when I see the red dot on a painting of mine as it means that it has found a good home.

Luckily, the gallery owner ask me to bring up a different painting to exchange out with the sold painting.  I’ve got my fingers crossed for another red dot!  The new painting depicts a magically mist that mysteriously dissipates to show a colorful bower just waiting to be explored.
