Letting Go of Original Paintings

I am always torn when I sell an original painting that I really like. It makes me happy that someone values my work enough to pay money for it. Yet, I become attached -- especially a painting that has been sitting around my house for a while. On the other hand, it isn't actually doing any good just sitting around my house. I would rather see it out in the world, hopefully making someone else happy.

Honey Bees, from "Over in the Valley"
So, today, I have to say goodbye to the honey bees. Go, be happy.
