The Art of Negotiation, Investing in ART, Investing in YOU, Its About the MONEY Honey! Part Two
Ask questions, sheesh, never be afraid to ask questions.
Don't be intimidated by people, they had a first day in kindergarten as well, don't let people fool you. We all have a beginning to every single thing.
Compare your information with others and define your own set of standards that you want to allow as part of your artful deal making.
Feel good about yourself. You have worked at your technique and it has cost you MONEY to get to where you are. Brushes alone are quite expensive. If you don't take care of them like me you are buying them constantly. Paints add up and then there is the space you paint in or sculpt in. It all adds up.
The Art of Negotiation, investing in yourself is you trying to get some money, and energy back. Don't shortchange yourself on that. Be your own cheering section to give yourself some extra confidence when that gallery does come along.
Consider all the costs involved. Just because a gallery has a pre-written contract and the confidence to hand it to you does not necessarily make it a good deal for you.
What about shipping? Is there a trial period? That can kill you right there alone. If they expect you to pay for shipping both going and coming and the trial is only three weeks, is that a good investment on your part? How confident are you that your art will indeed sell? Don't ship your work anywhere until you know that. Do your homework!
Learn all you can before signing anything on any subject right? Right!

Fantasy Art Woman
I am a figurative artist and illustrator living in Hawaii. Most of my work is painted in oils. I also do sculpture. I illustrated for Hay House Inc.,"Women Who Do Too Much" CARDS taken from Anne Wilson Schaef's book. I also illustrated for Neil Davidson, who was considered for the Pulitzer Prize in feature writing, and several other publications. My paintings are collected worldwide.
In every single one of my paintings my objective is to 'know them'. To let character reveal their own vision or message. I am often astounded as their presence unfolds and I am met with who they are. I then realize that who 'they' are defines me as well. My hope is that my paintings & sculptures relate to you, and that legends of mermaids; whimsical angel pictures; and tooth fairies fantasies give you the message you need for your own heart and soul. http://www.kathysart.com and http://kathysart.blogspot.comYour Article Search Directory : Find in Articles
