So how did my table do at the sale barn? Well, let's just say, men don't buy pictures to hang on the walls! LOL! It was worth a shot though, right?! We did sell one print to the lady that runs the cafe. She's a friend of ours and bought one of the husband. Went straight back into the cafe and hung it on the wall!
I took my lunch hour to run over and sit with the husband. Had a guy look at the prints. He was just amazed I took them. Kept asking, "you took these? You took all these? Really?" Geez! I know I may not look like I have talent but come on!
Anyhow, let me tell you what the husband did the day before all this (without my knowing). He loaded up all my prints (framed and unframed) and went all over town to various stores showing them off. Can you believe that he sold 11 to two stores? I have TWO stores carrying my photographs. One even told the husband not to go anywhere else cause she wanted her store to be the only one around with them! The other store said they thought they were going to sell very well. And if they did, then they would give me an ENTIRE display! HOLY COW!
Then people starting asking if I would do weddings and family portraits. The husband said he would have to check with me. I told him no way, that's too much pressure. So he tells people I don't do "posed" photography. I will, however, come out and spend time with you while you are working with your horse or playing with your kids and take your picture.
So how cool is that! Plus I have a shop in the Panhandle that I plan to sell in, I am getting a booth at the local craft gallery and I'm thinking about having a booth at a huge barrel racing come September. I think I better get out and start taking some new pics!!
My husband is the greatest, huh! He believes in me and makes my dreams come true. I'm a lucky girl.
