Unfortunately that's pretty much how I see shops these days (apart from book or artshops) - a delectable array of stuff that I don't need , things that will probably have me wondering why on earth I bought them. And often the things depend on what they're displayed with to add pizazz.
The point of all of this? When I paint I'm not trying to concoct a decor element. My painting may or may not match your sofa. The red of the frame may pick out the red of your favourite earrings.
Rather, I'm painting a complete moment of something, which may have nothing to do with anything else in your house! If I was commercially minded enough I'd probably realise that I should change my attitude , but I'm not sure how long I could keep that up. I remember selling a painting to a couple once who emailed to say that they had bought a house , had no furniture but were enjoying sitting on the floor looking at my painting on the wall . And that made me very happy :)
PS. I did come home with a new recipe book and a pile vegetables, so I'm not a complete failure at shopping expeditions.
