I’ve been hoping to be an Artist (upper case A intentional) when I grow up. At age 77 I’m still trying.
Some people say I am an Artist. I hope they’re right.
What I lack is the confidence to represent myself that way and to price my work accordingly.
I’m somewhat put off by the extremely high prices I see on many pieces I see in Art Shows.
I have to wonder if they actually get what they’re asking for.
I personally think some of it is horrible.
Why would anyone pay ANYTHING for junk?

So, I’m still searching for the way to price my work well without robbing my clients.
I think I’m going too low.
