Re: Donating instead of selling
I had a giclee of one of my paintings be donated to a fundraiser for a local riding stable by the person who bought it from me and sell for many times what she bought it for. They are neighbors and if I had known it would do that well for them I would have donated it myself.
I enjoy donating paintings to causes I support and also like to give paintings to friends and others who will enjoy them.
I like selling, but I paint for the enjoyment of the process and to create beauty, so if I can get a painting out in the world where it can be enjoyed that is a win for me.
