Letting Go

Recently, I visited a friend who purchased “China Blue” two years ago.  It was a piece that I was quite attached to- I had it framed and hanging in my family room.  I really wanted to keep it, but my friend was gently persuasive and I decided to let it go.   It was difficult at first, but ultimately I was happy that my art found a good home.

As an artist, my work becomes part of me and I become part of it.  It has gotten easier for me over the years to see these pieces leave my studio.  My greatest and most satisfying reward is adding a little color and happiness into someone else’s world.  I realized that I can still love something even if I have to let it go.
