a blog post I made a few months back about an inquiry into three of my paintings... seems I was more than a bit leery of the writer's intentions and said so. My readers were divided as to whether I handled it appropriately... most of them having dealt with suspicious inquires at some point. Plus, I had a really bad head cold... I felt snotty and acted it.
So a few weeks ago I receive another email about my work. This time I don't have that underlying feeling of distrust and even if chances are it won't go anywhere I behave myself. Now, fast forward to today... and the above paintings are being shipped to California via the gallery to which I referred the potential buyer. What a vote of confidence this gives me... and a lesson!
Now see, Karen? That wasn't so hard! You don't really know if that other emailer might have been on the up-and-up! It's quite possible that you can't read minds and too quickly assume the negative.... I am humbled!
