Ann Rea, (an artist with a course to help artists sell their art), makes an interesting point that when you are selling your art, you are not really selling your art. What you're selling is EMOTION. You're not selling paint spread out on a canvas (digital or physical). Anyone can spread paint on a canvas. What you are selling is the emotion that the paint spread out on the canvas invokes. What emotions do the pictures that you painted induce? Nostalgia? Awe? Amazement? What purpose does your art serve?

If you're an artist selling art, take a step back and think about what you are really selling. If you've sold an artwork, comment below with a description of what it looked like (or post a picture), and then elaborate on why it sold while explaining the emotion (or other values) that the buyer applied to your artwork. If your buyer is someone you know personally, state your relationship to them.
