On paintings leaving their roost

It is a happy and a sad feeling when one of your paintings leaves home to live forever with its new caregivers. This is especially so when the painting moves out of your country and starts life in another country. It is almost like looking at one of your loved ones far away from home yet resting well in the knowledge that it would be very well looked after. This is the feeling I had when I watched one of my paintings hung at my sister’s home in Germany. They said they are enjoying having the new company in their living room.

Very soon, some more of my favorite ones are starting to find homes and I am sure we need to get used to this.

I rarely feel sad about it anymore. In fact, I rejoice because of the extra storage/painting space!

That said, there is every now and again a painting or drawing that I'm sorry to part with.

In any case, your piece looks very handsome in the new home!

Chris and Corrine,
Thanks. Yes, I liked the way it was hung up also.
