Rice Bowl and Bird

I had a message on my voice mail when I got home this afternoon. It was from the Old Forge Art Center in Old Forge, New York. They sold my small quilt called "Rice Bowl and Bird". I have such mixed feelings! I do make these things with the intention that I will sell them, but some become more special to me than others. "Rice Bowl and Bird" has been traveling for nearly two years with "Fine Focus" a juried exhibit of small format art quilts. I was so delighted to have it chosen for Fine Focus and even more so when I saw it hanging with the rest of the show in Coos Bay last December. It was such a good show. It was really an honor to be part of it.

I hope my little bird has found a happy home. I was looking forward to seeing him again, soon. Sigh.

  4. Rice Bowl Bird is probably my favorite of your birds. I, too, hope he has found a happy home.

  5. Do you ever copy your small quilts? I have found that I like having a full size paper image so that I can revisit some of my favorites.

  8. Oh darn! I've been waiting for that little bird to fly home so I could buy him (and then you could have visited). I'm sure you will make more wonderful things we'll all love.

  9. I can relate, usually I am delighted when I sell a painting, and sometimes honoured, when, for example, an artist I admire buys one, but sometimes it almost feels like selling my kids! There are one or two that remain special and are hard to part with. There is one I still regret, after 4 years!
