I shipped my Nauvoo Temple painting out this morning. Usually, I don't get too attached to the artwork I create. I know that I will have to give it up and so I purposefully try to keep an emotional distance from my paintings once they are completed. I was not successful this time. I was all sniffles as I carefully boxed up my newly framed painting and got it ready to ship.
Please don't think I am horribly strange for getting teary eyed at shipping off my painting. I never have before, but there was something about this one that I just have a hard time letting go of. One thing is for sure - I will be ordering myself a nice canvas print for my own wall!
Now it is just a matter of time before I will know if my painting of the Nauvoo Temple has been accepted into the 9th International Art Competition. I will be holding my breath!
