I know that when you exhibit stuff part of the plan is to sell the stuff but sometimes when you do it feels a bit wierd. Perhaps it is because you are especially invested in the piece or were really challenged by making it. The sale of this piece is a bittersweet thing - I am happy someone loved it enough to spend their hard earned dollars on it and will get lots of joy from wearing it (I hope!) but I am a bit sad to see it go. It is a bit dopey to feel that way but there you go! The idea for this piece was floating around in my head for a long time before I developed the skills to actually make it!! I guess in one way it has been a part of my life for a while now! The felt in it was made on a weekend away in the Yorke Penninsula with my best pals and hand cutting those circles was a challenge! Actually, now that I reflect upon it, I am glad it has gone to a new home because it leaves space in my head to develop something new. Still, I don't know how painters ever let go of their work!
