A friend of mine often insults and belittles artists who “sell out.” Once he suspects them of self-promotion and of wanting to be a little too successful, he turns on them. And as my old boss used to say–once you get paid for doing what you love, the quality of your work goes down.
Sigh. I guess I’ll have to take my chances. A few of you have suggested that you might possibly be persuaded to buy one of my pieces, and at the risk of sounding like a jerk, now is your chance–although I have NO IDEA how to go about this. If you do happen to be interested, let me know. And if you’ve seen a piece of mine that caught your fancy, let me know that too. I will be working on way to display things and take Pay Pal and all that horrid business stuff.
How do you feel about promoting your work? Does putting something up for sale change you?
Thanks. Now Happy Halloween. Go get scared.
