Market with Yellow Umbrella - Day Four


Yep - I'm crawling along with this one, but it's not for a lack of interest.

I've learned that my cards in the store that feature people on them don't sell. The ones without people sell okay, but if there's people, they sit idle.

Not a big deal, I suppose, but I really enjoy painting people.

So my dilemma: do I commercialize my art and go for what sells, or do I paint what I choose for myself at the risk of not selling?

Bigger question: what is my art to me?

Knowing your market is always a good thing in business. If you ignore it, then you will obviously miss the boat. But there is nothing stopping you from painting people in your larger paintings like your "Market with Yellow Umbrella" and designing your cards towards your tarket clientèle.

You obviously have the talent to pick and choose what you want to paint and as you said ... what is your art to you? That is something you, and only you can decide.
