Do your consider yourself and amateur artist or a professional artist? How you answer this question depends on how you answer the questions below.
Do you as an artist expect to be paid for your work?
Or - As an artist do you create for the love of it and would rather give it away than charge for what it is worth?
Here is how I answer these questions.
As an artist I choose to sell my work based on my own need.
As an artist I choose to sell my work, value for value.
If I did not believe in myself and my choice to sell my work then I would not be able to own my own life nor be responsible for my own life.
I would not be able choose to own my own spirit.
As an artist you need to choose not to trade your life, your soul your spirit other than how it appears in your unique work.
