I'm very excited to find out where my little works end up. I will share the location of the machine when I find out, but that most likely will be months away. A lesson in patience. Hopefully those who buy them will find as much joy in them as I have had in creating them.

I'm embarquing on my first adventure in selling my art. Today I sent off a box with 50 little boxes filled with my "Dreams" series to Artists in Cellophane. They sell 2"x3" pieces of art from old cigarette machines. These machines are located in stores, museums, and colleges through the country. For a $5 token someone can purchase a little piece of art in the same way as a candy bar or soda. The program isn't really a money maker for the artist, but is a fun way to step into selling. I'm more interested in sharing my work than the money anyways, so I don't mind the salary of $2 per hour. It seems that money is only an issue when I worry about and I would prefer that my art is about joy. My only hope is someday I will be able to pay for my addiction to supply shopping.
