POTD: Selections From My Windowsill #3

Selections From My Windowsill #3

The problem with showing your work at an art gallery is that it exposes you to some very interesting art pieces by other artists that you end up buying. In the end you may spend more money than you earn from the sale of your own work. That’s what happened to me at the Rapscallion Gallery here in Bozeman last year. We bought a really cool sculptural piece the night of the reception, and then on returning later I added this crow skull that had been mineralized by treating it with various unknown (to me) chemical compounds, giving it an intriguing patina. Not a bad way to go into the hole selling your art work I guess.
