I kind of...
SOLD MY FIRST PAINTING!
I'm still in shock. And it's not totally finished yet, she's putting it on hold but....IT'S. SOLD.

Yay! Isn't it a wonderful feeling? Here's to many, many more sales, Aubrey. Your work is super.
Wow! How exciting! Make sure you take a picture of it for your records, and possible first exhibition book!
How did your buyer find you? And how did you decide on the price?
@Ev - It IS! I still can't believe it.... Thank you so much! :D
@Kip - Thank you! It's really motivated me to work harder. :)
@Adrienne - She's a friend of my brother's and she's been watching my facebook page. Every time I uploaded a new painting, she would get more and more serious about wanting some of my artwork. She's moving to a new apartment in spring and she wanted something nice to spruce the place up.
UGH. I ALWAYS worry over price. >.O I based it on how long it took me to paint multiplied by a little more than the minimum wage. I still feel like I might have gone a tad high but my brother (the salesman of the family) feels I went a little low. But it doesn't matter now, it's done. Phew. :P
Have you considered doing some prints for limited edition signed copies to sell?
My first sale was to a university friend of my daughter's who is like a second daughter. Now I sell to people (at shows) I don't know--and sometimes to people (on the internet) I have never even met.
Ev, do you always sell originals?
So far, yes, I’ve sold originals. I have good scans of all of them and could do prints if I thought there was a market in the future.
Did you do the scans yourself at home? or professionally?
I had them done professionally by a friend in the biz.
