The Image Collector
this is shaping up to be my most productive year in a decade, painting-wise. i better do something about trying to sell some of these things. i don't apply to galleries any more. i don't particularly like giving away half of my proceeds unless i can get enthusiastic representation, so i just put my work on the site and hang in coffee shops and the like. i guess i'm going to have to break down and hit the streets though, because my production is far outstripping my sales. the question is, do i double my prices (which pay me about half of what my job does)or do i halve my profits?

Take out an ad in the local paper with a picture of one of your paintings in it with just the caption "It's coming" underneath it.

Do that for a while. People love mystery. Then do a show in the park again or something.

Well, the idea needs more padding and work than that, but it's a better option than losing, or giving up, money.

Re:

phoenix is a bit big for that idea, nice as it sounds, and the thing is, i'm not that interested in the money right now. i won't sell them cheaply, because i think that devalues the work, but i don't need the cash. i would rather give them to the museum if they would have them. i think i'm just going to wait until i get back to tucson.

I understand the money part. You're moving back to Tucson permanently?

I think that's the happiest face I've ever seen anyone make around here. :>
