And then you have some people jokingly say "Beautiful work, but could you move the decimal to the left a spot?" They may think it is funny but I'm not sure whether they understand how de-valuing their comment is. They are jokingly saying that all your hard work and hours put in a piece is only worth $190.00 instead of $1900.00 (for example). Is that what they really intended? I hope not.
For an artist, word of mouth is crucial. A witness who experienced your work is a great reassurance to family, friends, co-workers etc., in speaking about the work, and sharing ones experience with it. And in the meantime, I continue to try and find ways to make the artwork more accesable when viewed online, and ways to try and help people visualize the size of a piece etc.
I welcome everyone to at least have a look at the pieces that are available, as well as the option of the very high quality canvas prints, including those for which the originals have sold.
