  1. I assume that there are different people with different views. But in any case, every job is like a child that needs to be carried, given birth and promoted. There are probably unloved children, but about everything in order… It's always hard for me, for example. Especially if you like the job yourself. There is one subtlety in this. Surely you have heard such a thing as”the creative path of an artist”. Passing it, the artist usually develops. They experiment, try new solutions, approaches, and themes. There are professional ups and downs, good luck and bad luck. Therefore, there are works that can be called passing, mediocre or those that the artist has professionally outgrown. This does not mean that the pictures are bad (especially in the eyes of the average person). This means that now the artist has moved much further and works better. It is easy to part with such works. But those works, better than which the artist has not done anything yet, can really be torn from the heart only with a piece of meat))) But you can ask around again, you may meet an opinion that is different from mine.

  2. It is a natural happiness-not to part with your work! Because you understand that someone else needs them besides you. This is not a farewell to your children, it is a generous distribution of the fruits you have grown, which you personally can not eat anyway, but you give people the opportunity to taste them.

    But it is better not to give them – �the exception is gifts to sincere, but penniless connoisseurs. The person who got your work for free will not treat it as a value. In my dusty mezzanines, I have forcibly donated works that I don't like and don't want to look at every day. Although, it seems, these are not the latest artists ' works…

    Give, if you see that a person is just rushing from this thing-then you will give him happiness. Yes, and myself – �too.

  3. If the price is adequate, then this is great. First, it means that your work is appreciated, that it will continue to please other people and live a long life in someone's home or collection. Secondly, you will invest in yourself, in your development, materials, tools and further work. Like any energy exchange, it brings only pluses.

    Naturally, you still have photos of your work, whether it's in your portfolio or on your website. I usually also ask customers to take a picture of the painting already in their interior – this is very cool and helps other customers to “try on” the art for themselves.

    But there are some works that I won't sell – just because they are very personal. I think every artist has them.
