Probably about 2 or 3 times a year I donate pieces of my artworks to different local charities. This year in March I am donating my piece called "Greet the Sun" towards a big event with Lifeline. Below is the painting.
Its not till November, and that seems like forever away, lol but I am very excited to be hanging 15 PIECES of my artworks in a local Cafe called Gnostic Forest. I have the WHOLE MONTH to show off my art and maybe sell some, which would just top it off!! I will probably hang mostly my Tree paintings with a couple of Buddhas. I am sure I will have lots more painted by then to pick which ones I want to hang.
They have a magazine called Gnostic Living which I will be giving a profile of me and my art to publish.
When it comes to pricing my art, its got to be one of the hardest things lol!! I guess at the end of the day if I am happy with the price I see on it then thats it!! Everyone is different with their theories. I like to tally up the materials and time, the packaging and postage. I visited my local art gallery the other week, there were some big paintings selling for $10,000 and you couldn't tell what they were lol! I reckon if I had that sort of money I would be buying something with beautiful fine detail, texture, colour and took them years to paint!! lol
It just came to my mind about a painting I delivered up north a bit, I was driving up that way so I thought I would drop it in to my client. It was a pretty big painting too. Well I dropped it off... all good...... a week later I got a speeding fine!!!! Yep, this same day I delivered the painting lol. Boy did that dampen my spirits about the sale!! Needless to say I didn't make any money on it. You win some... you lose some!
Till next time..... don't forget if you want to discuss anything with me or tell me any of your experiences, please do so.
Live the life you want to create for yourself, take that next step and it will all flow.
Love and Light to everyone of you.
