I looked at your newest posts this morning and a couple reminded me of a couple of my pieces.  I printed and am matting 5 pieces to sell at the Christmas fund raiser for student scholarships.  I am kind of scared at how my impressionistic pieces are going to be received.  I am worried that now one will buy them since photographers do not often exhibit impressionistic photographs.  Have you ever exhibited/sold your work?  How were they received if you did?

Well, first of all, never doubt what you are doing, you should always exhibit the work you believe in and like. It is a dangerous path to follow when one start thinking in terms of what the audience might want or not want, if you believe in what you are doing, that is the path you always should follow, Yes I have exhibit my work several times both as a photographer and earlier when I was working as a traditional artist (painter). I have always exhibit the work I like, the work that I believe in, and the work that is “about me” as an artist. I have a conceptual approach so my exhibitions are almost always about a concept I am working on at the time. Sometimes I sell a lot, sometimes almost nothing. My experience is that whether I do sell or not is almost never about what kind of work I exhibit, it is almost always about where I exhibit the work. A gallery, where you have someone (the owner or employees) present is always the best. If the gallery is a commercial one, well than it is in the owner’s interest to sell, so he or she are likely to push for the work and that really helps, you will have someone who advocate your work, so to speak. I’m absolutely certain that if you are in the right place, and have quality work regardless of genre and at the right price, you will sell. But having said that, the fact of life for us artists is that art in general is very hard to do, but even harder to sell…

Thanks so much for your reply. What wonderful words of experience.  I guess I am reluctant to show something so different.  I lack confidence in the work but they are pieces that brought me great joy to create.  I guess I'll find out what people in northeast Texas think about abstract expressionism and impressionism in photography!
