It's not the hardest thing to do but it is an uneasy one. The way my wife decorates causes me to pause every time I pluck a painting off of a wall to sell. I eyes I get are can burn for a while. I know however that i can replace each one with something new that she will like just as much or sometimes better. Maybe I should work on that before I pluck....nah. It's what we do as artist.
We seem to only be motivated when we want to be motivated. It's called being in a creative mood (You guys know what I'm talking about.) For all of you married artist out there good luck with how you handle the eyes.
