I thought we should all enjoy some rainbow today. :)
Nobody wants to buy my paintings so I'm stuck with them. Maybe that's a reason why I don't feel like painting cause I don't want to hoard them. It's like I reached my quota now I wait. :)
I mean they would have to be the same size of course. Cause nobody would like it if you made an 8x11" painting and got a 5x5" back. And I would be a lot more pissed if I got a painting I didn't like than I'd be with an ATC.
It's tricky, too, cause the photo doesn't necesarily show the quality of a painting either. It's different if your business depends on it but you can't really go: "hey, I want my painting back cause I don't like the one you sent me!". Right?!
It would be a totally great idea in a perfect world. Like in a world in which we'd get to read each others minds and we'd make exactly the kind of paintings the trading partner would enjoy.. I know I'd be devistated if somebody wouldn't like what I'd sent them in return.
And there's this thing about where to store all the paintings you traded. I have like 200 traded ATC's. Where in hell would I put 200 paintings? Right?!
Not such a great idea after all. So, as far as this blog goes, you're stuck with ATC's and an occasional art journal entry. :) My appologies to all who'd like to see something else.
