To sell or not to sell.............

I think every Artist has asked themselves this question, should I sell my art. We put a little piece of ourselves into our Art and we just can't seem to come to terms with selling it. Then the day comes when you have so many pieces in your studio, you think what is the big deal, "I will make some money to help buy more paint, brushes or pens". To take those Drawings or Paintings and have an Art Show where people come and hopefully say wonderful things about your work is very gratifying. If you are lucky, a sweet young couple with two beautiful kids will look at one of your drawings and recognize a particular scene where they once had a picnic. Believe me it feels great selling them a piece of yourself so they can always remember that day.

I have just set up a shop at Etsy. I am just getting started so have a look. Here is my web address. www.etsy.com/shop/ValleyArtProject .

Thanks for looking and please leave a comment to let me know what you think! Next week I will start up my drawing a week posts. Please come back to take a look!
