All's Well.......again.

All's Well 3.........Sold
I have painted this subject earlier.  It was on exhibition and sold.  A visitor to the gallery  was disappointed that it had sold.  She wanted it as a Christmas gift and asked if I would paint it again.  It presents a bit of a dilemma actually and raises a few questions as to whether you, as an artist, should repeat what was originally a unique work.  Of course you can never paint the same painting twice and in fact, it is an interesting exercise to compare the two.  My teacher dismisses the idea of any problem about painting the same subject twice and referred to Monet and his wonderful water lilies.

I hope the recipient enjoys it.
