It was a fantastic day at St. Lawrence Market yesterday!
It was very busy, people were very friendly, I made a lot of sales in cards - and I sold a painting! Woo
This large, amiable man from Texas wanted to buy my "Nude Woman Reclining on Sofa", but his wife wouldn't allow the purchase, saying that she wanted to be the only naked woman in their home. So, I suggested my "From the Perspective of Three Tulips" to him and he bought it right away.
And then, when I had packed up all my artwork, Sarah and I met Jen and went to Tim Horton's to relax and chat. It was a bitter-sweet gathering because Sarah and I knew this would be one of the last times we'd see Jen before she left for Berkley. Jen an I exchanged gifts. I gave her an autographed copy of my new book "The Artwork of Anne K. Abbott" and she gave me two of her beautiful photographs, framed, of me painting in the nude.
