Do Not Look Back
Yesterday I visited the place where this painting is hanging for sale. I have to say that I like this painting very much. I like the loose interpretation that i have managed to capture. I am happy with the end result with the limited palette used.
I added a nice mount to it before framing it in a modern and very complimentary frame. All in all it looked good hanging where it was.
Before hanging in places I print a little descriptive label and indicate the price it is on sale for. When hanging I make a reduction in the price. Whoever buys it will take it with them. I will not have to package it or post it. I will not have to use paypal and pay them a commission.
So you can imagine I was bit surprised to note that somebody had stuck a little note on the painting offering to purchase at a one third reduction.
I have always tried to make my art affordable, that has been important to me. I have on more than one occasion given away a painting.
Now I ask you my blogging friend should I have felt insulted? I am full of mixed feeling on this one. I am sure the painting is worth every bit I asked, and some people have said it is worth more.
The horns of a dilemma indeed.
