I am so delighted to share that this piece, gaze, has been sold. It is always such a wonderful validation as an artist to have a collector decide to bring your work into their home or work place. And I am beyond flattered because this particular piece was sold to Etsy itself to be hung in their Brooklyn offices. So to me this is a great opportunity for the work to continuously be seen and knowing that they have such a huge selection of wonderful work to choose from I have a wonderful sense of pride.
However as joyful as I am to be selling such a special piece I am also sad. For obvious reasons this work has sentimental emotions attached to it and for that my heart breaks a little to see it go. To make matters more difficult I have yet to finish a new work since this work was finished. I have 3 well on their way and 1 other started but due to varying circumstances nothing has been finished... and for me the most recently finished piece always had a little special place in my heart. So...
I need to get my ass in gear a finish a piece.
I need to take my camera to the studio and take tons of pictures of gaze so that I can remember it well.
and then lovingly package it to be sent to its new home. Where I hope it will be loved.
