I had just been invited to show my artwork at Elmira City Hall and had taken everything up to the third floor where the works would be hung. That same day I received a phone call from a lady wanting to purchase one of my pieces, a Wycinanka Polish Paper Cut called "CHRYSANTHEMUMS". I informed her that all my work was in a show but hadn't been set up yet. She told me that she knew that because she works at City Hall. So I actually sold a piece of artwork even before it went on display.
