"It's Never Too Late to Be What You Might Have Been"

Several years ago I painted a painting VERY similar to this.
I sold right away and then I had several emails for more.
But for some reason at that time I thought each and every painting I did had to be unique.
No repeats.
I then had a woman email me about making a larger painting in different colors for a Christmas gift and I relented.
I mean it was for Xmas!
I don't know where I got the idea that I couldn't repeat.
I now see many artists painting the same thing over and over, varying it just a bit.
This makes a lot of sense. So I plan on doing that.
Sometimes the same, sometimes not.
ANYWAY... I've listed it on Ebay and I'm hoping that it's popular again.
Alpha dog has bills to pay! LOL!

Really, I've noticed that many commercially successful artist's do paint variations of the same thing over and over. I think it's perfectly fine. I loved that one about losing an eye...I could envision it done over and over with different cats and in different sizes. I could see it with a very big picture of the cat and small lettering. I loved that one. I'm going to talk about your art on my blog one day next week.

Each is an original and has its own personality!

I think most artists think just like that in the beginning, I don't know why though :-)

But later in life they do paint the same thing but with small variations, very much alike but still every one is unique. I hope You can sell lots of it!

Have a great day!

What a lovely painting you've done--very glad that it is enjoying popularity! I love the saying as well--it is so true. I stopped by today from Mod Vintage Life, and just wanted to say thank you for all the work you do with animals and rescue animals in particular!
