It never gets old – that feeling you get when you sell a painting. Best described as a mixture of pure elation and a feeling of overwhelming humility, that someone liked a thing that you made with your own two hands, so much, that they want have it to look at forever.
This painting, called ‘Façade’, has been a personal favourite of mine since I finished it late last summer and it feels so good that it sold today to someone who loves it as much as I do. Quite strange to think that it will now hang in someone else’s house for years and years – becoming a part of their home and their lives.
I’ve been doing this a long time, but I hope I never become complacent and take the sale of a painting for granted. I hope it always feels like this 🙂
