Hi guys, long time since I was here last. What with preparing for the summer fete, and then extended babysitting duties and finaly our own holidays I just have not had the time. Havent picked up a paintbrush for 8 weeks and am finding it hard to get motivated again.Anyway, I sold my favourite one. It hurt to let it go. But thats life.
Here it is again.

Congratulations on the sale! I'm sure you'll be painting more great ones!!

Love the colors-the water in the front is especially nice. Good work and I hope you get your motivation back soon!

David. Congrats on the sale. Lucky buyer. I know exactly how you feel. Like parting with a child that you have nurtured. Chammi

Congrats on the sale! :clap: It's difficult to part with a favorite, but it could lead to more sales, so it could open doors for you.:thumbsup: I hope you can get back to painting soon. Sometimes just going into your studio & start putting some paint to canvas or paper, no matter the outcome helps. You can always paint over it, if it's not to your liking later.;)

Congrats John! I can see why it sold, it's a very nice painting. Just think of all the new paints you can buy now! Shoot, and if its a favorite, you can always paint it again too. Or another version perhaps. Way to go! :thumbsup:

Well done John! I know what you mean even though I haven't sold one - I have given a good few away as presents and think the feeling is the same.
Inspiration will come back.

Nice painting. I really like how you painted the water in the foreground. The reflections are very good, and the colour contrasts with the rest of the painting.

Did you get a decent price for it or did you "give it away" as my husband would say? :)
