While I have sold numerous pieces, they were always made for giclee's or reproductions and I own the originals. This is a new experience for me and I must admit I have conflicting emotions. I really liked that painting. Makes me wonder; do artists hold a personal attachment to each piece? I guess I better get over it, because I currently have seven paintings in various stages of completion. I have poured hours over each one and they kinda grow on me. Guess it's better to give them a new home than to enjoy all of them and be a starving artist, right?
Over the holidays we hand-delivered those pieces (here and here) for our grandson. Here's what the whole group looks like hanging over his bed.

So I started RUNNING this week using the Couch to 5k app!!!!! Please, hold the applause. Save it for when I actually finish. What helps is there's a Brit that talks to you and I'm a tad bit embarrassed that she's talking when I'm within earshot of others. I try to time it to get past people before or have even turned around to run in the other direction when I couldn't avoid passing people in time. Now I can truly say, "gotta run". xo
