Sold my first painting from my Color of Woman Training. She is one of my favourites and will always hold a special place in my heart. She is titled "Muse of Desire".
I thought it would be harder to let her go, but surprisingly it was not. The woman who adopted her had an instant connection with the piece. The painting even looked like her, and she has a connection with yellow butterflies.
This painting has been done since May 2014-but I hadn't varnished her. So last week as I was varnishing and honouring her, to display her at my Mom's new store (Crystals & Karma) I was falling in love with her again as if I had just painted her. I even specifically thought as I varnished the tree sections that I may not be able to let her go. Then a week later I get a call asking how much I would sell her for. I could feel that the woman who wanted to take her home loved her and needed her-and that made it easy for me. That is my purpose in creating art-for healing and inspiration in myself and others. I want my work to connect with the people who are buying it-I want them to feel something when they look at it-and let it connect to their story-no matter what my original intention was or what story I received while in the painting process. I know I won't be able to meet everyone who feels a connection with my work-but I am glad that I got yo meet her. It will be easier for me to trust that my loves are going home where they are needed and loved.
