The point of the article is that you should not worry about anyone's voice but yours. Create what inspires you. Create authentic and honest work. Be true to yourself and your art.

Increase Your Art Sales | The Power of Follow-Up

I can't guarantee that every follow-up effort will lead to a sale, but if you follow up consistently I can promise that you will see more of those "almost" sales convert into "follow-up" sales.

Artists and Rejection

The key principle to keep in mind is that it is your responsibility to succeed. In the grand scheme of history, it is YOU who will be remembered, not the people that rejected you.

The majority of people who have became successful have at some point been rejected by people connected to them, but it is you who are labeled a success of a failure. Never quit because quitting guarantees failure.

your writing is very good ... it is gloriously difficult to travel the path of the arts .... you just have to look at the objective and work hard to get there ... only after a long walk one looks back and can value the result of that sacrifice and never stop growing ....

Many Galleries are Closed on Mondays...

If you are an artist participating in a show or festival, stick out the full length of the show. I know it's a huge temptation to pack it in early, especially if the show has been poorly attended, but I can't tell you how many times we've had a client come into the gallery right as we were closing and end up making a purchase.

HOW TO GET TO THE "HEART" BEHIND YOUR ART

Why do you paint/draw/collage/sculpt/sing/dance/insert-your-creative-work-here the way you do? I know artists who are capable of using any medium but CHOOSE colored pencil work. Not because they can't do anything else, but because it feels right to them.

Confidence

You need enough confidence to believe in yourself and know that you can express yourself through your work. Yet, you need enough self-doubt to be humble and realize the need for constant improvement and learning.
