When some piece sells a dealer would be happy.\nWhen this fantastic tribal weaving (stole) sold, I felt pangs of separation anxiety. When the buyer wrote to say that he had received it and was pleased with it, it made me envy him for possessing it. It is a piece I shall never forget.\nMy post retirement career plan (about 10 years from now)\u00a0 is to become a dealer \u2013 out of sheer necessity \u2013 as my kids will probably be troubled rather than pleased to be inheriting caravan loads of old textiles! So to save them the grief, I intend to sell them all in a decade or so after years of enjoying them. Seems like the sensible thing to do!\nBut I doubt I can handle the pain of letting these beautiful things go! Until I can I will refrain from calling myself a dealer!\nSee more photos in the contemporary textiles gallery of wovensouls.com here:\nhttp://wovensouls.photoshelter.com/\u2026/CONTE\u2026/C0000fIWZVfp.fro\n\njm\nAug 2015\nThe post A Dealer would have been happy \u2026 appeared first on The Art Blog by WOVENSOULS.COM.
