A Good Feeling
I was always concerned about these paintings, as some of you will remember. I felt I had made a good job of these and that I should make a special effort to have them sold and hung together as one work of art.
I had them framed and had made arrangements to have them hung. Then I began to have second thoughts about them. I kept looking at them and asking if I had over estimated the worth of these.
In the last week two things happened that have made me stop and think again.
The first is that my son has opened a new office and he has taken the four paintings to hang there. He has made the decision for me and I feel very proud that they are where they are. I hope you agree with me they look well in the situation.
The second thing that happened. I was visiting a little village in the Lake District. It had a gallery, and of course, I had to visit. As I looked at the works there my wife commented on the prices and also went on to say that in her opinion some of my paintings were of equal quality. The person in charge of the gallery came over and spoke to me. He asked if I was an artist. I informed him I painted. He said he suspected that from the way I was looking at the works.
As I was about to leave he asked if I had a website he could look at. I gave him my card. The next day I got an email from him. He himself was an artist and produced some fine works, but he said he thought my art was good. He then went on to say that I was selling it far too cheaply. Praise indeed I think.
It is always good when praise comes from the places you least expect it.What Are You Waiting For
