It used to, but now it makes me very happy to ship a painting off to a new home. The paintings I can't let go of never get offered for sale.
No, not at all. Itís a good feeling actually.
No - move on. If I don't want to sell something i won't. Once the work is done though, they are mostly rendered as just 'things' to the creator, who uis then really into what comes next.
No. My relationship to the piece of art ends when I sign it. Paintings are like puppies . . . you have to get rid of them, but it is always better if they go to good homes.
Every now and then there is a piece that I really don't want to let go of, but since most of my originals remain in light-free storage, I tend to let go of them anyway. Being able to keep a digital copy of these pieces definitely helps - I don't know what artists did when selling meant they would never see a piece again! There are a few pieces that I make for myself and won't part with, but I'm more in love with the process of making art than I am with keeping the final product.
Yes,always. Miss them like children.
Even though I strive to pour all of who I have been created to be into one of my paintings, I believe art is a gift for all of us. When someone is moved by a piece of art, they have identified with the "vision" of the artist. Therefore, when art transfers from the hands of the artist into the hands of another person, a relationship or bond is formed. True social networking occurs. I am exhilarated by those that "see" what I have "seen" and feel deeply honored when they desire to share the experience with their circle of influence.
i havent sold anything yet, and i dont think it would bother me at all, if i really loved the drawing, then yes i would hate selling it
Sorry, but I will have to repeat a part of my answer for the question: Is a work of art purchased, or is it better said, that it is the artist who is bought? (See above).
At first it may be hard to give away or sell something that you put your blood, sweat and tears into. This is to remind myself as well as others: In time you will create another. Just let it go. With love and light, let it go.
Yes it kills me, but I know it allways goes to a good home, and that keeps me happy.
You have moved on- in intent and emotion- from the end of one undertaking and the begining of another.
well i dont know, i have never sold an artwork of my own, just meaningless drawings or paintings that looked nice.
Yes, a few times I have been reluctant to sell.
Yes. I am emotionally attached to many of my works.
