Well, it's been a productive week for me.
Since my last post I have sold another glass painting and I've also completed two more to replace them.
Here's the first of the two replacements...
...I'll post the other one in a few days.
Let's hope they sell as quickly as the last two did!
Meanwhile, I received an email last week from a lady enquiring about how she can get hold of one of my original bear paintings - namely 'Sherlock'...
...This is good news, right?
Well, although I have limited edition prints available - I hadn't actually put the originals up for sale yet!
The plan was to get the series complete and then hold an exhibition, where the bears would be available to buy. But that was to be some way ahead, so I hadn't considered how selling one of the bears might actually feel.
I'm always so chuffed to sell my other work, but somehow the prospect of selling an original bear makes me feel quite emotional - even though that was always the intention!
Sherlock and I go back a long way and if the lady does decide to buy the bear, then handing him over will be really hard! *sniff, sniff*...
Still, she does sound as though she would love Sherlock just as I do, which helps a lot :0)
I'm not sure I could hand him over to just anyone!
Is this the same for all Artist's? Or am I alone here?
Have any of you had a painting, which you have been so connected with, that you have found it really hard to let go of ?
I'd love to hear your own stories - if only to make me feel less ridiculous!
