I sold two paintings last week! This is a record number for me. I have one packaged according to Saatchi’s policy: completely wrapped in acid free tissue, bubble wrap, and cardboard. The other painting is to a local person so no bubblewrap. I have printed a lovely certificate of authentication for each.
I must admit it feels great to sell a painting to a total stranger. I wish I could sell more. My inventory is heaped. I want to poll the buyer and ask why and how? Why did she choose the work? What about the piece spoke to her? Is it wrong to ask for data? And what should I ask? I think I will try to come up with an online poll to send to buyers. Not that the results will change my art process but It might change my selling process.
Thank you for your feedback.
