Several adults contemplated buying and were visibly disappointed when I quoted my market price. Bear in mind that this was a free event, and most people weren't prepared to spend more than $25 or so for family food and entertainment. In fact, alll the folks who had come to sell were in agreement--this wasn't the place. It was fun, though, and a beautiful day to be out and talking about art.
We tend to forget that many famous and successful artists spent a lot of time on mentoring and business activities (think Monet, Renoir, Chihuly, Warhol, even Kinkade) or had spouses or business managers who handled that stuff (kudos to Mme Monet, Mme Picasso), while some incredibly talented artists who were unable to do anything but art tended to be hungry, disturbed, chemically addicted, penniless (unless they had private income or generous friends)--think Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, Styll. In any case, the Impressionists wouldn't have made such an impression had they not organized enough to put together a famous show, supported each other's efforts, and put some of their energy into getting organized.
