Almost always, I just sell usage rights. Original art is rarely sold. But I'm not against it. As I grow (and my storage capacity fills) I tend to throw away my old originals unless there is some personal significance.
Hell no, it pays for my race car!!!!
No, I always take good photos of the work before selling it.
For about 2 seconds.
No, when I'm done, I'm done. I'm interested in the next piece of work. There have been drawings or collages I've had a special fondness for, but nothing that would keep me from letting them go.
Normally, it is something of a release, but that can be dictated by circumstances. I was working on a large courtroom scene during a period when I didn’t have the free time to just sit down and finish it. Unavoidably it dragged on for six months, inching forwards literally, when I completed the drawing “Wren’s Nest” for Barrister Sally Hancox (which was even larger) in 10 days flat. I felt like I would never finish it, and I was glad to see the back of it!
NO IF I PAINT SOMETHING TO BE SOLD THAT'S WHAT IT WAS PAINTED FOR
Yes, I feel like all of my creations are like things I have given birth to, things that are genuinely a part of my being. I try to remind myself that by sharing my art I am able to make the surroundings of other people more enjoyable, and that by letting go of some works I can continue my work to create more. Everything is connected.
Sometimes, but the rewards from someone paying for your work is amazing
Never. The work is not mine to keep. I create my art for you. To laugh and love and make you happy. I keep only a few of my sentimental favorites.
