A gathering of artists

Self Portrait – Year 4

I believe that every piece of art is a ‘self-portrait.’  In my best work, I say a lot about myself.  I can’t help myself.  I tell you what makes me laugh.

Pricing your art

by Maureen Fitzmahan

Did you have trouble pricing your art work for our Gallery Show in January in Oakland? I did.

There is a difference between the value of an art piece and what price it will sell for.  The value of your art is made up of two things: 1. how you value your art and 2. how the market values your art.
