|"Poppies" Love this one!|
It felt totally liberating. I had all this space freed up, oh the glorious space! ...and you know we artists need empty spaces. Having empty space is like a quiet validation seductively whispering: It's ok to paint more, do it now!! My optimism about the work I will do in the future is like a crazy making fairy dust. But (buzzkill ahead) pinning all hope on future work might not be the best approach. A few events that occured between then and now that have me re-thinking my willingness to have "out with the old." First, I had a request for a companion painting I did for Poppies. Poppies had become a best seller in poster-form and somebody wanted to buy the (original) companion pce... Oops?! Um, can you say "sorry that one is in a Cleveland landfill?" Subsequent to that, I discovered that painting over and fixing old paintings can result in immediate blog sales.
