I am very excited to announce that I now have a small display of my bird pieces in the Wild Birds Unlimited store in Riverside. You can see their website at www.wbu.com/riverside or pick up some awesome bird loving stuff at their store at 10456 Magnolia Ave, Riverside, CA 92505.
I was contacted by the owners who saw some of my work at the Lake Arrowhead Gallery. They thought that some of my reverse glass paintings of birds would fit well in their store. They have never had any artists on consignment, so I am the first. They brought in a special curio cabinet just for me!!
I quickly made about 8 pieces, added a couple from my stock at home and dropped off 10 wood pieces and 1 framed piece last Saturday. Mary called me on Sunday to tell me they sold one. Wow - pretty cool! She also asked if I could make more hummingbirds since they were holding a seminar on Hummingbirds this Saturday (tomorrow - March 17th). Of course I could. I made 4 more pieces and delivered them on Wednesday. I am quite anxious to see what the response was.
Anyway, this was really cool - to be recognized for my art at a store that specializes in wild birds. I am hoping the relationship works well, that they sell some pieces and make money for both of us.
