June 9 – Fire Sale

After three weeks I’m really starting to see a very different side to the whole Fire Sale.  At first it seemed a lot less serious, almost laughable.  Imagine an artist losing his mind and setting fire to all his work.  That kind of thing.  It didn’t bother me because I stored away my feelings towards these pieces along with them in the dust and cobwebs of my studio for the last 6 years.  I haven’t even looked at them.  It was just something from my past.  Something that I know that today I could do better now that I’ve matured.  But in the last three weeks, with each new sale, and a new face connecting to the art whether online or off, I find myself having to reconnect with the work.  Now, I feel compelled to save all of it, just as many people have communicated to me via email or phone.  I’ve set my mind to it and I believe they will all sell before June 20th.

It’s been a very stressful ride.  I thank everyone who has been there for support.  You know who you are.
