Mr & Mrs C Fly Away
Now here is the stumper: sometimes we artists work for weeks, even months on something that takes every bit of creative energy and emotion we have to give....and it hangs around and hangs around. Other days we dash off a little something just for the pure fun of it, experimenting and playing with it...and it is sold before it dries. Not that I am complaining...just wondering.
Anyway, such was the case with "Mr & Mrs C." I barely put it on the easel before a lovely lady from Blowing Rock shared the story of her backyard cardinals and had to go home with the piece. Wonderful. And very good for the ego and back account. But sometimes I have to think that as every pot has a lid, every painting has an owner...it's just a matter of connecting. And maybe a matter of having a little more fun while painting and a little less angst! Go figure.
