Since I started selling my original watercolors at saatchiart.com I noticed that it’s hard for me to part with them. Watercolor paintings which I create, have their unique charm and delicate beauty, and hold a special place in my heart. For me, parting with original watercolor paintings is emotionally charged decision. In this blog post, I'll explore the reasons why it's tough to part with these original creations and the deep emotional connections that often tie me to them.
- Personal Expression: Original watercolor paintings are not just artworks; they are a form of personal expression. The brush strokes, color choices, and composition all reflect the my emotions and creativity. Letting go of a painting can feel like parting with a piece of my soul. Each watercolor painting is one of a kind. The delicate, transparent nature of watercolors makes it nearly impossible to recreate an exact duplicate. This uniqueness adds to the emotional weight of parting with the original.
- Sentimental Value: My watercolor paintings often capture moments, places, or emotions. They serve as a visual diary of the my experiences and feelings. As a result, these paintings often hold immense sentimental value, making them difficult to part with. Watercolor paintings can transport me back to specific moments or locations. Whether it's a landscape from a memorable vacation or a portrait of an animal, these paintings evoke nostalgia, making it hard to say goodbye.
- Artistic Growth: My art grows and evolves over time. Watercolor paintings represent a specific period in an my journey, and letting go of them feels like erasing a chapter in my artistic history. Creating a watercolor painting is a labor-intensive process that requires patience and skill. I become deeply attached to the work I put into each piece, from selecting the paper to mixing the paints and applying delicate washes.
- Fear of Regret: The fear of regret often looms over the decision to part with original watercolor paintings. What if I realize later that you miss the artwork or its sentimental value? This fear can deter me from letting go.
Original watercolor paintings are not just pieces of art; they are repositories of emotions, creativity, and memories. The decision to part with them is undoubtedly a challenging one. While the attachment to these artworks is natural, it's also essential to evaluate whether they continue to enrich my life and whether they can find new homes where they'll be appreciated and cherished. Balancing the emotional attachment with a desire to declutter can be a personal journey, but it's one that may lead to new artistic endeavors and the opportunity to share my creativity with others.
