05/08/2009: "Tonight's the night"
Well, tonight feels a little anti-climactic, but I'm still nervous as hell. I was able to shrink wrap 12 prints last night. I got a tip from Rob Roys about how to do a better job on the shrink wrapping. First off, let the little heat stick get good and hot before trying to melt the seams. Secondly, use a straight edge (I used a long metal yard stick). The difference was amazing. I had these perfect seams which made the actual shrinking part a piece of cake.
These prints actually look professional, as opposed to having a bunch of extra hole-ridden plastic on the back-sides. I know of 2 or 3 people who plan to buy prints, so even if none of the paintings sell, the prints selling would be AWESOME!
I now have prints of the Pump House Sandy Beach for $40.
The "Book of Dreams" for $45.
And "Lion's Head" for $75 (it's much bigger)
As well as some of my other prints.
I don't think many people will come tonight but I intend to have a nice time either way.
It's the new me!
