Artists Desperate for Approval

I shake my head when I see artists posting their work on ebay or setting their prices so low that they might as well post an ad on their foreheads that says, “I’m desperate for approval. Please prove to me that you value what I do by paying me some pennies.”  That’s what low prices for your work means, actually.  In my last post, I said that low prices suggest you don’t value your work.  Well, that’s not really the case, now, is it?  It actually means that you so desperately want someone, anyone, to prove to you that they’ll PAY you in legal currency for your work that you price it so that you know that anyone who wants it can afford it.  And still they don’t buy it.  Oh sure, a sale here, a sale there, and they talk your price down maybe, right?  But not hoards of people buying copies.  And certainly nobody who comes in and says, I want an exclusive on that. 

Psst!  If you are pricing your work in some effort to get people to prove to you that your work and who you are is worthy, think again.  If YOU like it, that’s all that matters.  Now price it according to how MUCH you like it.
