It was a pretty slow day. I had my prints out on display, plus three sculptures.
I also had a sign up, stating: "10 minute portraits, 50 HK dollars ONLY!"
As soon as I put the sign up, some dude came and sat down to be my first customer. Kinda nerve racking as I hadn't done this in a long time. Plus the last time I did portraits at this speed was for friends - faces I was already familiar with.
But the dude was happy!
And then the rest of the day trudged on.... about 5 hours passed. No sale. A lot of looks, a lot of nice comments. But no one bought anything.
Then a bird shat on me.
All over my Back to the Future shirt.
Texted my girl, and she said it meant good luck.
Never heard of that before.
Though I'm not one for superstition....
And I had two hours remaining until the end of the day.
In those two hours, I made A TON! (smiley face)
Most of my work was sold, and I had multiple customers for portraits!
