Some great news: I was able update the art quilt RECYCLED HOPE III: WINDOWS OF CONVERSATION on my Portfolio page as: “OWNED BY PRIVATE COLLECTOR”!
A month ago I was contacted through my tierneycreates Inquires page by an art consultant in Seattle, Washington who was interested in purchasing this piece for her client.
We worked out the details, I created an invoice and they purchased the piece!
So with this sale, I’ve now sold 11 of my art quilts over the past 5 years (and yes I would be very hungry if I’d tried to live off the sale of art quilts as that averages to 2.2 quilts sold per year – ha!).
The City of Seattle owns four (4) of my art quilts which you can check out on my Portfolio page:
- COLOR STORY I: FLYING TRIANGLES
- COLOR STORY II: SILK LANDSCAPE
- COLOR STORY IV: COLOR CHANGE
- COLOR STORY V: ABANDONED WATER STRUCTURE
And the rest of the seven (7) that have sold were purchased by private collectors:
- WE WILL NOT BE DISCARDED (not in my Portfolio but you can see a post on it – We Will Not Be Discarded’s Debut; it sold at a show at Twig’s Gallery in Sisters Oregon in 2016)
- RECYCLED HOPE I: RECYCLED ROAD
- RECYCLED HOPE II: RECYCLED DOOR
- RECYCLED HOPE III: WINDOWS OF CONVERSATION
- COLOR STORY III: RANDOM NOT SO RANDOM (see post The Great Art Quilt Oops!)
- COLOR STORY VI: ARCHAEOLOGICAL DIG – THE VESSEL
- COLOR STORY VIII: THE LOUD COLOR SHIFT
There is one more on my Portfolio page that states “owned by private collector” – COLOR STORY VII: IT’S GETTING WARM IN HERE – was actually a gift to my sister, I did not sell it.
Writing this post is serving two purposes for me:
- Providing me with an easy reference to see just how many I’ve sold; and
- Encouraging me to get back to making art quilts as my portfolio or available art quilts is dwindling!
Hope it did not put you to sleep (smile)!
