I sold this watercolor last week for seventy five dollars including shipping, (sixty five clear). I mentioned the sale to a friend. She wanted to know how much--and then, why so little? I told her: it was sitting in a file drawer taking up time and space; the buyer saw it in my Picasa Albums and thought it would be perfect for some invitations; I thought why not?
Since then, I've been looking at my Picasa Albums. I had forgotten all about them and certainly never thought anyone else was leafing through. A hodpodge, they need cleaning out and straightening up. You never know who's looking--I could also use a business PayPal account. Waiting for his check to arrive snail-mail and clear seemed unnecessary time spent and isn't patron friendly.
Oh! And during his wait, the patron wanted an HD photo of the work. My camera doesn't have this feature. I ignored his request, but thought about watermarks and copywrites and signatures. I've been too sloppy. Out of the blue, this upright fellow came along and did me quite the favor.
