PJ Hornberger 's comment on Your Attitude About Auctions

This is a great subject. In 2011 I made the decision to not donate to the local hospital's fund raiser. In the 4 years I donated paintings on a percent of sale agreement. I got less than the price I could sell it for. I made one client from all that "free press". They came to my gallery and spent less than $25. The hospital doesn't offer any care to non-insured people like myself. The fact that I live in another county also cuts me out of reduced pricing on their stay healthy plan. I donated a painting to a group home for troubled kids last year. A client asked me. Since I could not afford to donate cash, I was glad I could donate a painting. They did not ask this year. I thought that was nice.
So my rule for my art business will be only donate to something I believe in. Expecting nothing in return. Give from my heart. thanks for asking!
