I don’t want to have to throw these away!

I try to paint at least twice a week, and I have to admit that the canvases are starting to stack up. So I want to find good homes for my paintings so that I’ll never have to throw one away.
I’ve been worried about this. When most people start something new, they are very self-deprecating. They recognize that their first efforts aren’t very good. That’s just the way it is. As a painter I understood that it would be a while before anyone wanted my paintings, if at all.
But then my family and friends started to express genuine appreciation of my paintings. And I started thinking. If those who know and care about me like my paintings, could other people like them too?
So I need the courage to show my paintings to people who are NOT close family and friends, and ask them to hang my paintings in their places of business.
Why not in their homes? Okay. I guess they could hang in homes. But I want them in high traffic areas where lots of people can see them.
Now, I’ve been in sales most of my life. I understand how to get out and pound the pavement and sell a product.
So I’m finding places to hang my paintings. I want to find people who might want to hang one of my pictures in their businesses.
Would you like one of my pictures?

I’d love to give you one.
Here’s one based on a picture I saw recently
