Favored child moves on
I was pleased, in a bittersweet way, that this painting sold yesterday. It is off to California to take on a life of it's own, as it should. Where it will travel over the next 100+ years, well, I'll never know. But like a child birthed and reared, I did my best with it and now it gets it's own life.
I don't really have a problem selling originals. I know some artists have a hard time with that. Once it's out of me I'm pretty much done with it. But sometimes you do a piece and really like it. And you want the income, but you secretly hope it stays around awhile longer. I almost didn't put this one in the recent show, but opted to. And I guess it was meant that I do that.
I am working on a a new piece about a blue egg...I have some paintings in me ready to come out now that Pie Day is behind me.
