The Impact of Sales

SOLD – “Dawn Arrives Slowly” – Yading, China – 10×5″/25.4×12.7 cm

The “Help Mark Move the Studio” sale is currently in full swing, and continues until May 5th. I’m grateful to everyone who has contacted me and made a purchase! Wow! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’m shipping more stuff out today!

What I realized, and finally articulated a few minutes ago, is that this experience has had an impact on me in more ways than one.

1) It’s helping defray the costs of moving, and it really does help us with the whole “food and shelter” thing!

2) It’s freeing up physical space that has been holding all this inventory.

3) It’s freeing up psychological space. I feel like I’m not just accumulating more of my own artwork, but that there is ROOM for more art, even in my psyche.

4) Knowing that someone resonates with my art is deeply satisfying, and having someone choose a painting or drawing creates a connection like no other.

These are irreplaceable experiences, and I’m grateful to be having them.
