Blue Mask II – a goner

Sold “Blue Mask II” on Monday.

It’s good to see this one getting a new life. I am very fond of the picture and always wondered if it would translate, to mean something to anyone else.  I’ll get feedback when I visit the gallery next week. I have to go to put a signature on it before the new owner takes it away. I always forget to sign paintings! I had an idea in the past that signatures waste the surface of a painting and spoil the experience of “looking in”. The habit of leaving it out developed and now I dont sign because I simply forget.

So now I have had to sign a couple after the sale and have been put on the spot to explain why it’s missing on numerous occasions. I get the message! I’ll sign from now on.
