This afternoon I tried to paint the same picture I did the day before on different paper. Yesterday I painted November walk on Pastelmat on a 10"x18" piece of paper. I posted it on Face book and someone asked if it was for sale. Of course I said yes but I was secretly sad because I have a problem letting go. I always feel I will never be able to do that painting again and would I really want to. So today I tried to repaint the same picture on 8"10" piece on sanded paper. And guess what?....I didn't like it! The first one I thought was better. Was it because I was bored painting the same subject twice? Or was it because of the paper? I think a bit of both. So sadly when a painting sells it is A one off piece never to be seen again. Selling a painting is bitter sweet. But it has to be done.
