Absurdities - 17 exhibition day 4

Spent the day on my own at the exhibition today.Wanda who I am sharing the gallery with was not able to be there..so I was able to get down to some serious concentration and complete around 5 hours of work. don't get me wrong..I had visitors and sold two prints . The majority of people seem to appreciate and like my surreal images better than the Derby ones...of course i know this and would happily jog along completing many fantastic and surreal pictures...but they don't pay the bill!So I will have to intersperse my work with things that I know will sell.

Now I'm confused Niall. If the majority of people prefer the surreal, why do the real ones sell more? ...hmmm now that I've phrased it, I think I understand.

DM...It does appear to be a contradiction doesn't it?...I suppose I should clarify that my Derby pictures are more widely available and sell at the Tourist Office in Derby... it's my surreal works that get the positive comments during exhibitions.
