So here’s the story. I went to get my hair done a few weeks ago, and the stylist casually asked me,
So what do I need to know about you?
A simple question. I thought about it and since I had just started a painting before my appointment, I said,
I’m an artist.
“Oh really?” he said, and then I pulled out my iPhone and showed him a pic of the piece I had just started. He said, “That’s not done? Then you have to show me some of your finished work!” So I pulled up my Facebook page and showed him a few things. No big deal, right? But what he said next is still ringing in my ears.
Would you be interested in doing a show here?
It turns out my stylist also handles marketing and design for the salon and they like finding unknown artists to showcase their work while also filling their wall space. And they don’t charge a commission. Yes, you heard me. They don’t charge a commission. So I will get 100% of the monies that come in from the show. The salon is situated at the end of a hallway that houses a couple of cute little shops and one of them is doing a trunk show that starts April 16th so they want to kick off my show the same day.
So I’m just a teeny bit panicked about that.
