|Does it pain you to let go of a piece you have sold?
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
At first it may be hard to give away or sell something that you put your blood, sweat and tears into. You will create another project. Just let it go. With love and light, let it go.
[note: but whenever you can and if your contract permits (in the case of commissioned works, never let it go without a copy for your portfolio.]
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.
For a few moments, I feel the pain of the birth of that piece and the work it took to create it. Then, I let it go and know that I've made room (literally and figuratively) to create more and better work.
no because if I sell a design it means someone will get the design tattooed on them which is the point of what I do and means my art will be that person for the rest of their lives
