It's Like Selling Your Children
Ok, so it isn't that dramatic, but do you sometimes feel that way when you sell something you put your heart and soul into? I am slowly listing some original art in my Etsy shop and as I start to list some of them, this debate starts in my head (and heart) about whether or not I really want to sell them because I love them so much. They may not be fine art but they are fun art and they come from my heart. However, I remind myself that if someone buys it, they must really like it too, and it will go to a good home. I'd love for you to come over and take a peek when you have time. The one pictured above is one of my favorites, so I won't be heartbroken if it doesn't sell. ;)
I don't have this one (below) listed yet, but it will be up over the weekend. I used the little ironstone piece as the model for my painting. The blue roses aren't realistic but I love the color!
Here's another one I really like, although it's darker, I love the colors:
This tall painting of yellow roses was the last one I painted for the Lavender Festival and was one of the first ones to sell. I loved it as well but was happy to hear it was going to decorate a young lady's new apartment.
If you want to read about the goings on behind the scenes, come over to my facebook page. I think I scared a few folks away yesterday when I posted pics of the snake that was peering in the living room window. Oh, well... I do live in the country. :)
Happy Friday, Happy Summer, and Happy Longest Day of the Year! :)
