i sold a drawing.
what? what was that i said?
you heard me right. i sold a drawing.
i am freaking out. seriously? seriously! i've been chatting a bit with this woman over at the child abuse survivor network. i'd posted a bunch of my art, which is a huge part of my healing and my ability to deal with the abuse. she contacted me and asked if i would be willing to sell it to her. (i'm not going to tell you how much, out of respect for her, but i was thrilled with the price we decided on.)
it is going to be difficult for me to part with it i think, although it isn't one of my absolute favorites. this is a drawing i did in 2004 when i was really starting to heal quickly and i was doing better than i ever had. it is, in fact, a drawing that depicts the healing side, rather than the painful side, of my experience.
this is the painting i sold. it is untitled. pencil/prisma.
i cannot tell you how thrilled i am. as an artist, it is a huge validation of my thought process, of my time, of my work, of me, when someone appreciates my art.
if you want to see more of my art, i posted some of them here. and if you're interested in purchasing one, or commissioning one, you can leave me a comment with your email, or email me at cornnut32 AT gmail DOT com.
