If you want to sell a piece of art you have done, here are some questions you should ask oneself about that piece, so you can convey the answers to potential buyers:
- When you created that piece of art, you were feeling something.
- What was it?
- Where were you?
- Why did you do it?
- How did you feel when it was done?
- What does it now say to you, the artist?
Answers to questions like these will often move a person that critical inch from “I like your work” to “I’ll take it.”
This works: after creating the small study you see in the picture above on location at a painting workshop in Tuscany, I painted a large version of it later. And I did sell it.
