I would love to share my experiances, positive and negative, being a native floridian artist for 30 + years here in osceola - orange county, New York, and Miami.

What is it about artists and inflated prices? I have been in the mix in all aspects of art, internationaly, domesticaly, retail, wholesale, private commisions, I.E. everything.

I walk around and see in dressed windows 500, 750, 1500, 5000, price tags on work that in reality should be givin away for free just for the artists privalage and honor that someone on this planet is intrigued with the piece...

What happened to art for arts sake or even the shear joy of having a person or couple give honest respect and admiration to the artists for the talent, maybe asking for a five or ten bucks just to cover material costs.

Am I being a dumbass, I know we all have overhead and need to make our ends meet but come on with this over the top extortion of the idea that the more you sell it for the more it's worth nonsence.

Just sayin,

Travis
