I've sold a few more pieces. The small canvas collages I created seem to be a hit. I took 9 down to Twilight a couple of weeks ago and 4 sold immediately. I will have to get cranking on more of those. I hope the prints take off as well.
A guy called me this morning from Candle's Cafe wanting to know if I'd take $75 for a $100 piece. I really didn't want to do it but I did. My justification was that if I had sold the piece somewhere that charges commission I probably wouldn't have gotten that much out of it. But part of me wants to say no. It's art and it's worth at least $100. In terms of supplies involved, the pieces cost next to nothing but the time investment is pretty significant. If I thought I could get more than $100 out of one of them, I would charge that. But alas, people just don't buy art. So I've priced them to move. I just don't know if I want to be haggled down as if it was something at a garage sale. What do you think?
So, the new year looks to be pretty busy. Jan. and Feb. find me with 5 different show opportunities whether they be solo or group. I hope that 2008 will prove to be the year that my art really starts to take off. We'll see.
