what amount of money would i be willing to part with my carving?
some folks never sell their carvings cause they cant part with it,,
i have a few pieces that i feel that way about it,, but when you want to sell your carvings ,, then the next question is is it resonable? is it affordable?
i guess the next question would be that i often ask myself,, would i be willing to pay that amount for it?
if you have a piece that you want to keep then kept it ,,, i never want to feel that i made a mistake selling a piece and if in doubt then dont...... ,, as long as your happy with the end result, these questions only you can answer,,,,, i cant carve a bunch of stuff in a week, but it takes months to build inventory for a show,
i have no desire to do commission work,, i find it stressfull cause the other persons vision of a piece would be different then what the final piece will be, so i just carve what a want, and put it up for sale, and if it goes great,, if not not a problem, just take it to the next show,,, so folks , dont forget to enjoy carving if you get to sell some of them that is great,, its the icing on the cake,, i would have carved it anyway,, cause i enjoy it,, keep carving , arleen
