A Painting for Myself

April 2008 009

I’ve been painting for most of my life.  With nearly every painting I do, I sincerely believe that I will keep the finished piece for myself.  Then once the painting is completed, inevitably, someone falls in love with it.  When someone loves my work that much, I insist that they have the piece.  How can I not, I can always do another one for myself…except that I never do.

So, finally, I recently decided that I will do a painting for myself.  When it is complete, it will hang in my house, for me, no matter who loves it.  The piece I am planning will be one of my musical paintings of a song that I have loved since I was a little girl:  Old Man by Neil Young.

So that is my intention, only time will tell what happens to the piece if someone should happen to fall in love with it.
