Do I Want to Exhibit?

Of course, every artist wants to exhibit his or her artwork.  But I am no longer keen about getting to exhibit in galleries.  A male artist I met did not seem to care much about it.  I asked him how he sells his paintings and he said nonchalantly, “Just by word of mouth.”  True, not many artists actually sell during an exhibition but I was touched by his attitude.  He was more animated talking about what paints he uses than where or if he sells his work.  A purist, I thought.
