I once read that the very best works of an artist are hanging in his own home. I am 62 years old and have been an artist…a selling artist since my teens. I have kept my favorite pieces. Yes, I have shown them, even sold prints, but kept the originals. Obviously it is a small and very eclectic collection. Some hang in my home, some have never been framed, but live in a closed portfolio.
I very much understand that your work is connected to your soul. I also understand that we create to see our soul children go out into the world and provide not only our own opportunity for growth but to perhaps provide that opportunity to another soul.
Great article. Keep painting…Keep writing. You have a lovely soul.
