Living the Life of an Artist
Sometimes I feel like a failure. Here I am again getting ready for another show--- Hillsborough Area Artisans’ Spring Into Summer Faire--- and once more I am questioning pricing. I try to work a formula, but I still question. I want to be fair to customers and I need to be fair to myself.
Others I talk to go through the same dilemmas so I am not alone. I want my work to sell, but I also need to make a profit. I’m not looking to make big bucks, but I also want to be seen as a professional. I want to be consistent and, of course, I want people to like me and love my work. I want people to love my work enough to buy it.
I love what I do and I’m proud of my art work whether it’s Fine Art Photography or Exquisite Charcoal Landscape Drawings.
