03/04/2006: "Selling a painting before you exhibit it"
In the last two days I've had people want to buy 3 paintings from my "In Progress" gallery.
Now, don't get me wrong, this is *really* excellent news for me, but I'm not sure how it fits into my "big picture". The big picture is to work on a body of paintings and take as much time as I need without an exhibition deadline and make them as good as I possibly can...then take the time to photograph them properly, take scans of my favorites for prints, send out to try and get a show to exhibit them somewhere great and *then* hopefully sell them.
I wonder if other artists have a policy about selling work through their website before it has been exhibited anywhere?
