It doesn’t matter how many times I try, I find it’s impossible to replicate the same painting twice! I’ve tried so many times; perhaps because someone saw one of my paintings and exclaimed “oh, I love the painting Margaret has of yours, I’d like one just the same!” or simply because I love a painting so much I don’t want to part with it… the problem is, it just never works out!
Take these two little siblings for example…
The fact is, that every piece of art work I complete is a unique creation, the product of my thoughts, feelings, mood, the weather, my surroundings… it’s “my child”, if you can indulge the metaphor.
And, as all parents will know too well, for all the genetic similarities our kids might have, each child is a wonderfully unique creation that can not be replicated, duplicated or copied.
