I am not a salesman, nor will I ever be. I am introverted. I will post my work. I will go to showings. Those make me nervous. When I was in Bobby Sox softball and had to sell candy bars for fundraisers, I would buy them myself so I wouldn’t have to sell them. I was just too shy.
I recently had an “ah ha” moment in relation to art sales. The same thing happens whenever a piece of art sells. The person just “has to have it.” It is a quick decision. It is not really an impulsive decision. The art touches the person’s soul for whatever reason. I hear: “I really want it” or “I just have to have it.” That is it. It mystifies me. I don’t have to push a sale. My clients are absolutely sure. I just get out of the way. Now that is my kind of selling! Here are some pictures of recent paintings that sold just like that.
