Portrait of Joel - Sold!
It was while I was drifting, with possible future pictures floating in my mind, that the good news came - first of all, from a dear friend - that Joel's portrait was sold in the exhibition, this morning! Bittersweet news!! Don't get me wrong - I'm delighted to have made this sale for a number of obvious reasons. For a lot of artists, however, it can be a bit of a wrench to part with creations which embody a part of one's soul and, when that creation happens to be an image of one's own child, the feelings are mixed, to say the least.
But, no problem - I can paint another one! In fact, I will!! Now just to decide which one of those many ideas to tackle first...
