said farewell to my crow piece at the museum today :(

and it was SOOOOOOOOOO hard. I can't even describe how difficult it was! I am SO happy it sold and the lady who purchased it was so excited and I thrilled about that, but.........sigh. I picked up the other two pieces today, as yesterday was the last day of the exhibit. After I took my pieces down, I walked down and stood in front of my crow piece, and the tears welled up in my eyes. oh my gosh, here they come again! It was like I was leaving a part of me behind. I could have stood and stared at it forever, but I told myself it was time to go. Walking away from that piece was one of the hardest things ever. Its the first time I had sold a piece. That piece was my absolute favorite. and true, had I not taken him and put him for sale, I would have had 1 less award. But..........wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! I miss him. I almost feel like I have this bond with the lady who purchased him, because she has a part of me. She's such an awesome lady (the one who he belongs to now) and I will see her at the art gallery often I am sure. She told me I can come visit him :)

just had to vent about it :( sniff sniff

Yes, that special attachment we have to some of our artwork. I know you took a photo of your favorite crow. Print it out, hang in a special place where you can see him as a reminder of how far you have come in your journey. Debbie
