The paintings seemed to be enjoyed by everyone I talked to at the opening. If anyone didn't like them they politely didn't feel the need to tell me which is cool because I never feel the need to tell someone at their show that I don't like something. Professional courtesy. You could screw up a sale being public like that and I don't like messing with people's income!
I choose to believe the show was successful since at this time almost half the show has sold! I'm looking forward to the next show already.
