In early December 2019 I was enjoying my weekly breakfast outing with a friend and noticed that the walls of the restaurant were completely bare. For some unknown reason I was feeling a little more confident that day than I usually do so when I was at the cash paying for my meal I asked if the manager was in.
I had to wait while he was speaking with someone else, but wait I did. I introduced myself and asked if he would be interested in seeing my artwork. He said yes, so as soon as I got home I put together a small sampling of my images and emailed them to him.
He answered back the same day with an enthusiastic yes. So I got busy printing and framing and four days later I was in the restaurant hanging 14 images.
Neither one of us expected any sales, but I was happy to get the exposure and he was happy to get some colour on the walls.
Bonus for both of us....there were sales and I had to go back and replenish the walls.
Proving the point that it never hurts to ask. You may just be pleasantly surprised at the outcome.
My art will be hanging on the walls of The Biscuit Eater in Mahone Bay until the end of January.
