Hello all, I just wanted to let you know I have just put up my first original painting on Etsy…which is the Amish Garden. I must say, it was a difficult decision to make as I have never sold an original except for portraits that were commissioned, so this is rather strange. But I realize I can’t keep every painting I do and just sell prints all the time. I need to let go! I realize I need to share more of what I do.
I know how special an original is, as it feel like the artist is right there. That artist touched that paper…the strokes are there and just knowing that the artist had this in their hands, and in their studio, for however long it took them to do this painting is really kind of special. Also, I know a “picture” of a painting is not near as clear and as bright as the real thing. It’s just different.
Anyway, this is now up on Etsy for however long and I will be putting more of my originals more and more. Thanks for following me and your interest in my work! Cheryl
