Alas, tragedy struck our shop today. I had to say goodbye to an old and trusted friend, who has been with me from the beginning. She has been something of a bone of contention; some have said 'I'm not working with that thing in the room, it's eyes follow me'. Others have said 'The first person that offers me a fiver when I'm on the till can take it home with them'.
She and I knew that you can't please everyone; sometimes you have to remain steadfast, ignoring criticism and challenging your partners when they tell you something is really quite ugly.
Sorry it's not a very good pictureToday was the day I had to say goodbye to 'Ugly Red Cat Painting'. A man and his wife purchased her, but not before promising to take very good care of her. I knew they were the rightful owners when they held their ground after I tried to chase them from the shop.
Goodbye my friend, until we meet again.
