I decided to make a new sold category in my shop. I will start moving sold paintings into this category instead of deleting them. I had feedback from customers telling me it was hard to scroll through available paintings when so many were sold and they had to sift thru to see what was available. But then I have had customers tell me they wanted to see the sold paintings also. So this is my solution. We will see how it works.
I notice that the sold paintings are faded unless you click on them to see the details of the listing. I will not keep "sold" paintings here forever. But I will keep the recently sold paintings here. I also have an archive supported by Blogspot with many of my paintings since 2012. I also have many thousands of pieces on pinterest if you ever go to that site. I hope to some day make a book of some of my favorite paintings I have made and share why they are special to me. Here is one of them. It's my daughter and my niece. They have grown up like two peas in a pod. I will share more on them soon I hope.
