I paint for myself.  I paint subject matter that I like and am usually happy with the results but it makes me happiest when I sell a painting because I know someone's home is going to be adorned with it.  I have 41 of my paintings in my house and I love everyone of them.  I loved the process of making them so selling them is just the bonus.  Thank-you to my buyers because I know that your paintings will make you happy too.
