Listing Thangs

So I took some non-ipad pix and listed a ton of things just now.

Ambrosia.                                     Ocean Foam.                       Cloudy Skies.
And yeah these caged earrings are expensive but they sell so that's just supply and demand. I took a pair off reserve and raised the price and someone got a bit mad at me like I was price gouging.

And I get that she was disappointed but art's worth what you can get for it and in any case, as an artist I'm destined to be poor no matter how successful I am...

But people don't know that, they're just comparing to stuff they see in shops. But I got all weird about raising the prices on these charms as well.

But then I got over it and raised away. So let me say it again: Art's worth what you can get for it.

There's this guy who puts paint up his butt then poops it across canvases who says art is whatever you can get away with. I don't know why but every time I think about art and its value I remember that. And I think, hey at least I'm not shooting paint out my anus.
This is on sale:
A Sacred Pair.
I have all this left to list:

Don't know what came over me to make more earrings, since practically all that sells is the caged ones.

These above'll be cheap.

I'm gonna be adding blogs to my sidebar later today, I'm not forgetting you lovely ladies that sent me links.
But right now Imna stop to brush my teeth and walk my dog like a person.

 Wait, I just did that and came back- MAGIC!

After using some myself, I'm finally listing these burnt babies which I chronicled here. Man just looking for that post I saw so much stuff I'd made...

Good lord I make a lot of stuff.

So yeah here's some more.

Look at these non-photogenic things....
I should go keep listing. Feeling like Sisyphus- make photo, edit, list, mail, make, photo, edit, list, mail....  Except if Sisyphus got aesthetic pleasure from pushing that rock and watching it roll. Yeah.

Ooooh, you're a price-gouger now!!!! Whoo hoo! Right. Pardon me while I clean the coffee I just blew through my nose off the computer. Question: what did you say to that person in response? Did they specify just how you are price-gouging? Me, I genuflect in front of your frabjous genius.

P.S. I think I was married to that artist guy.

Your blog changed colour! I think considering your prices are already under wholesale, you should have that whiny person report to me and i will tell them exactly why they ought to be ashamed of themselves. So there. I'm diggin' the refinement in these pieces. Looks like you better change your name to 'classydevices'!

oh man. SO I love your caged earrings. They look and feel original yet ancient. Well done!

I showed them to a friend of mine and she said this: 'interesting...the beads though remind me of the little occillimaran pills I take'

crazy! Hah.

You know what? Fuck ppl that don't understand how time consuming or blood shedding and HARD Art is to conceptualize, make and birth! I had a friend asking me why I would sell a painting for more than$100, that I shouldn't do it for the money! I told him: first of all I spent YEARS figuring out my techniques and I still am, second it took money... College ain't free... And then let's not even start with materials etc! I got really mad!
So if those ppl don't understand that, they don't need to be buying Art, they need to order some mass produced bullshit from Ebay. so raise your prices as you should and Amen! I can't wait to get those earrings in the mail btw... So see? Someone that understands is buying ;)

well...yes...people who do not make stuff, who do not toil and make tons of mistakes while figuring out how to refine a design...they don't get it, they never will get it...unless of course they make the caged earrings themselves after which they probably would want to sell them for $200...

How come you never talk about Mr.Devices anymore...I miss all the crazy crap he does...
