What matters most?
Concept and Creation 3'x4' by Tracy Verdugo acrylic and mixed media on canvas
Happy weekend beautiful people!
Will keep it short and sweet today as I've yet to get out to my studio and I really want to even if its just for a little tidy up!
On Friday night I had my exhibition launch at the oh so delish Cupitts Winery....wonderful friends and family joined me as well as locals wanting to sneak a peek at my works and it truly was a gorgeous evening.
....just one thing missing.....
not a sale
To be honest I woke up on Saturday feeling a wee bit despondent..you know its so much more fun when the red dots start appearing everywhere and usually that is what happens.....
I waited till now to blog cos' I really had to digest how I was feeling..
equating my self worth or validity with the sale of a painting?
How dumb is that??
So I did some rethinking...
Art is about growing, evolving, becoming...
My work is undergoing big changes and sometimes it takes a while for others to catch up...thats ok...

I've sold enough paintings to know that each painting is just patiently waiting for its true owner.
Obviously they couldn't make it on Friday but they'll come...eventually.
In the meantime here is what is important ♥
good wine and more friends who are also musos who like wine! :)
and love ♥
and knowing when its time to stop doing....
and just relax awhile :)
much love and wishes for a wonderful week.....
