As I looked through the paintings as I was listing them, I recalled the time it took to create each of them. Many hours of “work” went into their creation. Why I’d just hold onto them and not try to sell them is beyond me.
With 50 free listings per month on ebay, cost was not the issue. It was definitely time along with the fact that it’s hard not to take it personal when things don’t sell at all or when things sell for very little. Truly, the work is what I love and the possibility that someone would want something that was dreamed up in my little soul and was painted with my little hands is…how can I say this…the right words escape me. The feeling is deep, like a catch in the throat, a glimmer of the feeling of falling in love. It’s a blissful state of mind when someone likes something I’ve done enough to bypass all other items they could have purchased, yet push them aside to choose mine.
At no point in time is this ever unappreciated, unnoticed or business-as-usual with me. Even comments, subscribers and likes through this blog, through Facebook or Twitter, they all go further than you could ever imagine to this artist. So, thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
Onto a few more of the current paintings listed and you’ve seen this gal before on my blog:
And I believe you’ve seen this one as well:
This floral watercolor painting was painted last year, too:
I don’t recall what the inspiration was for this piece. Perhaps it was a contest or challenge among some of my fellow artists, but I truly don’t think so. As this one was created several years ago, I truly don’t remember. I’m sure it will come back to me, though.
This sweet girl is near and dear to my heart with eyes on Jesus, her heart open and the cross in her presence.
A humorous painting of which I’m also very fond of, because let’s face it, how can I not love a Jeep-drivin’, four-wheelin’, off-roadin’, muddin’ cat???!!!
That seems to be a good one to end this post on, though there are more to show you soon. Since all these listings end in 7 days, I want to be sure to get them all on my blog so I have the photos somewhere safe.
