Quoting Molly

Catching up on email and putting stuff away...
Here's something I found in Molly Gordon's newsletter from a few weeks ago, on selling:

"Selling is not about taking money from your customers' pockets and putting it in your own. Selling is an exchange, a transaction that marks the movement of energy in the form of money, products, and services."

Probably due to the fire, among other things, the Tahoe Festival of Fine Arts was sloooooow, and I did not sell much. But I like the quote above, because looking at selling art, in that light, makes sense to me. I put alot of energy into my art, and when someone DOES appreciate that, we exchange energy; art for money. When I'm doing work I like, I can feel good about that.
