Selling Fine Art in a small American town

What is that process? For me, it has been an on-again-off-again relationship. As a working artist, I definitely have a reputation. I consider it the big fish in a small pond syndrome. What is now grasped at in the marketing world, and rearranged in whatever way highlights a person's best assets. Sure there are lots of things I am able to say about my own artistic development and personal vigilance over the years of being a citizen of this small pastoral locale, and... there is equal criticism about what isn't supported that is not all lacking in constructive merit.
However at this exact moment, because the sale was hoisted to achieve a certain financial goal_ that of funding a moving deadline that is financially out of my control at this time_ my hands, head, heart, and soul are all overwhelmed with the pressures we face as a hardworking family. There is no let up to the level work I have put in on the intrinsic level of developing a human life from very compromised beginnings, to graduation that meets reality where it is... in all that values quality of human life, there could just be reasonable transition right here, right now. I would just like unstressed sleep, healthy nourishment, some time of deep inner cleaning out of soul and body, and the appearance of renewing friendships that embody healthy relational skills, that could help facilitate with this huge moment of change and transition...

How did the sale go? Stay tuned...

As always, thanks for sponsoring my campaign for fiscal matronage/patronage_ there is a tax-shelter incentive for donor-contributors to the project of a 501c 3- umbrelled artist!

What a wondrous place you have created here.

I wish you well on this journey... finding your way (as we all must) through a path that is sometimes, and sometimes not, kind to the artistic temperment.

My very best and kindest wishes.
