Art Gifts

Daily Painting # 46: Red and White Carnations - 5 x 7, oil on panel (top), original post
Daily Painting # 19: Morning Glory - 5 x 7, oil on panel (bottom), original post

Sometimes an artist has to weigh the benefits of gifting cherished artworks, versus waiting for someone to buy them.

I gifted these two small paintings to my dear friends, because I'd rather have them seen and appreciated by people I love, than store them away in a dusty, dark closet in antipation of a buyer that may never materialize.

It was well worth it!
