Painting for the Day: "Coffee, Cream, Tangerine"
"Coffee, Cream, Tangerine", oil, 14" x 14", SOLD
I love little odd dishes and creamers, and when shopping always have my eye open for new ones to use in paintings.
Okay, retraction here; in April I reported that "Mystic Tangerines" had sold in Boulder, as an email conversation with the very nice gallery owner had led me to believe that. As it turns out, I went up to Boulder to see a friend a couple weeks ago and checked in at the gallery to find that Mystic was still on the wall.... going though my inventory in my mind, it occurred to me that THIS must be the canvas that's found a new home.
Do your galleries list the name of the painting(s) sold when they send you a check? Most of the ones I've been associated with do. In some really good cases, they also provide at least the name and city/state of the buyer, and sometimes the full address. I really appreciate even just having the city and state for my records.
What's your experience been?
