There are a few paintings I've sold that I regretted instantly. This was one of them. Luckily, my friend bought it so that made me feel a little bit better. A few years have passed, but I always missed this painting. I think of my paintings as a sort of personal timeline. How my inspirations and color combinations have evolved over time. It made me realize that it's okay to keep my favorite pieces, at least for awhile so I'm sure I won't be sad about it. People sometimes assume that since I sell my artwork that all of it is for sale. I can't describe the looks I've gotten when I say "it's not for sale." Like I'm being greedy, or maybe they're thinking "why don't you just whip another one out for yourself? Who knows....
Anyway.......... as luck would have it, my friend just recently moved into a cute little bungalow with very little wall space and was having trouble finding room to hang all of her art. I offered to buy it back if she wanted and she said yes. Hurray! My "Mermaid with Sea horses" is back home with me. I think I'll hang her in my bathroom.
