Say Good-Bye

A couple of pieces of work that have been in my shop since I opened have flown the coop. Both Bunny Girl and Drip Drip Drip Drip were purchased in the past week. While I'm happy for the sale, they were two pieces I really loved so it was hard to see them go. But now it's even more reason to make more work for the shop.
Any readers feel sad sometimes when you let pieces go?
In school news, my first week of classes have been hectic but good. Besides horrible horrible weather, I'm excited about my various printmaking classes. I'm also taking a class about professional studio practices that I'm really looking forward to. A lot of people think you get your MFA to teach but that's not really why I'm here. I'm here to make work, so this class will help me figure out an alternative way to live my life and hopefully be successful.
I realize this is my normal Etsy feature day. Maybe I'm still on a break from regular postings. I'm thinking about a favorite artist posting once a week and an Etsy feature once a week and maybe on other once a week regular. What do you suggest?

Heehee. I'm sorry you are sad to see bunny girl leave, but I'm selfish and so happy to have her in my home. :)

I'm trying to decide how I want to frame it. I will keep you updated.

thanks again Ann and please keep up the amazing work!

i recently took a piece off etsy for a similar sentiment. it was one of THE first pieces I listed for sale, and after over a year of sitting on the shelf, I decided I'd be really sorry to let it go.

I miss you!!

hmm, I'd say just do what you feel like. I would have trouble committing to posting a certain thing at a certain time - then again, sounds as if you like the structure. Whoa, I ramble.

So glad to hear you're not falling into the trap of teaching..! I have an MD in humanities (English, Swedish, Art history, Visual Literacy, World Literature) and it was like I bought into the whole "well, I can always teach" thing instead of being brave. Not anymore!!!
