PLEASE SHARE! It’s #tbt and time to PAY WHAT YOU WANT!
The other day, someone said, “It must be hard to let your babies [paintings] go, and I responded that I don’t consider them to be my babies. Once I have created them, I allow them to go out into the world, to become part of someone else’s world; I am not attached to them in a clinging way. The day after this conversation, I read this in Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Big Magic”:
“Your creative work is not your baby; if anything, you are its baby. Everything I have ever written has brought me into being. Every project has matured me in a different way. I am who I am today precisely because of what I have made and what it has made me into. Creativity has hand-raised me and forged me into an adult.”
However, I do have my favourites – there are some paintings I wish to keep around a little longer, or to be able to visit once in awhile. This is one of them. I feel especially happy about finding a new home for these favourites of mine.
1. Today only, send me a message telling me about attachment, and how it has hindered or helped you.
2. What is your offer? (Shipping and handling are extra).
3. I will contact you tomorrow!
