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

Don't you have headphones in so that no one else can hear?ReplyDelete
Congratulations on the sale! It is no wonder that one sold. It is a real beauty!!! I haven't sold any of my art yet - just given it away. I have a hard time putting money values on them because to me they are all priceless. However as the reserves diminish I have started thinking that selling one or five might be a good idea and that I need to get over myself! haha
So glad the boy loved his new artwork. It is a REAL treasure to be cherished for a lifetime and more.
Oh Lisa, that's so funny. It took me so long to figure out how to work the app I didn't wear headphones.Delete
That's a gorgeous piece of art there! Kudos on the sale. I feel the same way about each and every quilt I make. I put my heart and soul into every stitch, and then they're difficult to let go of. My sister did the Couch to 5K and loved it! And she's 54 years old and never ran a day in her life! So good luck, and go easy so no injuries :-)ReplyDelete
Oh Jodi, I can' even imagine selling a quilt!Delete
