So I have a strange problem being an artist. I have a hard time selling my work. And not in the way most artists I know have, it is not that I don’t want to let go of the piece, I just never feel it is good enough to sell. ip information . I get really excited about the work while I am doing it, but once it is done I often get bored with it. When people ask me what my favorite piece is, I always say my next one. And this is because I see the issues with the last piece and know how I am going to tackle those problems on the next painting.
It is also not that I feel that I have not put in the effort on a piece; I just see all my mistakes and often feel like under selling myself. Put this in with my inability to be a salesman and close a sale, and my art sales have never been strong.
For example my friend Daniel bought one of my originals this month. I was honored that he wanted it and gave him a good price on it, but still when it came down to receiving the money, I started to feel like I needed to knock some more off the price. I realize this is a silly thing to feel, but I still feel this way.
I guess I am wondering if other artists have or have had this same feeling??
