Autumnal Hedgerow

Autumnal Hedgerow

I did say that I was going to leave this blog running for a few days but you know me. I say one thing and do another it is just me. I did not expect anybody to take a look at my blogs again so soon.

I would still love to hear comments about the work I did on holiday if you have time.

I thought today I would share with you this bit of news. During my time away the painting I have included here today sold. I am not sure if I told you in the past but I was offered half of the price I was asking for this painting some time ago. Friends told me not to accept the offer and to believe it was worthy of its value.

I did like the painting so I agreed not to sell. While on vacation it sold at the price I had asked. So maybe there is something worthy of thought there.

I give away paintings frequently and did so while on holiday. That seems so different from being asked to sell at half the value you think the work is worth.

This blog is linked to my other.  Facing the Unexpected


  1. This immediately caught my eye as I was scrolling through my reading list on blogger. I'm not surprised that it sold, it's a wonderful painting, full of life and energy. I know what you mean about giving art works away vs. selling at a reduced price. The gift still has it's full value.
