For some time now I have looked at this painting on my living room wall. It is not very often that my wife suggests that one of my own paintings should adorn the walls of our home, our tastes are so different.
Strangely, this was in fact a second version this work. The first one my son took to hang in his workspace. When he moved to his won office it was brought home and hangs in his house. At the point my wife said she had thought it would be nice in our living room.
At the time I put it on a website and had forgotten to take it off. Last week it sold. It is now hanging in a dining in Somerset in England. I hope it brings much joy to its new owners and that it stimulates much discussion round the dining table. We were glad to have had it for a time, but even more happy that it may bring joy to others.
It means I now have another of my paintings hanging where it has gone from.
I realised as I came home from my run this morning and saw the new work, how lucky artists are that we can surround ourselves with images that bring us joy.
