birds flying at light speed
I found out about a new artist, Amy Ruppel, about a month ago on a blog (I can't remember exactly which one it was right now, but Kelly over at buzzville posted about two of Amy's pieces she recently acquired). I am infatuated with her stuff. I signed up right away to receive updates about her next art sale. Well, I received an e-mail a few days ago alerting me to a sale she was having today at 11am pacific time (1pm my time). Bad news for me...the sale sort of slipped my mind because my husband was leaving today for a 4-day trip to Colorado. After he left (~3:30pm) I checked my e-mail and was reminded of the sale. I went straight to her website only to find out that 40 of the 41 paintings were already sold! -- in less than 3 hours! Isn't that crazy! It looks like her work is a hot commodity. I may have missed out this time, but I will definitely be making Amy's next sale an appointment on my calendar. Go check out her work here.
