To sell or not to sell (and keep for myself)

This would be my newest poppy piece and I am in complete love with it.    I haven't yet made a poppy piece to keep for myself.   I have made them for my mom, my husband's office, my friends and sold them to a handful of people on etsy.   Maybe it's time to keep one?





It's my largest one yet and even better, it's upcycled.    It was an ugly canvas painting of a beach chair that I found at a thrift store for $3.   I LOVE cheap canvases :)...especially old ugly ones that need some love.

So, should I keep it, or sell it?

Beautiful painting! I am also in the habit of repainting canvases - usually my own that I'm tired of!
Wonderful work!

It's beautiful. Keep it. You can always make another one when you find another canvas. ;)

And thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I'm following yours now too! YAY for new blog friends!

Love you stuff, keep up the good work!

Gorgeous! I'd keep it at least for a while. You could always list it later should you change your mind...:)

It's beautiful! And a bargain too...better and better! I feel the same way about my bags...I still haven't made myself a new one in almost a year...despite buying fabric this past May...it was a fiasco and afterwards I didn't even want to make a bag! =) Keep it if you love it!

It is really beautiful and if your heart is telling you to keep it - then hang it so you can love it all the time.

Sooo pretty. I love the shape of the canvas, it really makes the poppies a great base. Gorge!

I would make variations on the theme and keep the artist proof.

Beautiful work and items BTW.
I love your hand-made frames as well in your Etsy store.

Am I the only "sell it" vote? It's so gorgeous!!! But yeah, I suppose you could keep it for a while...and THEN sell it! :)
