-What is it worth and how to value it ? Have you ever had difficulty pricing your own work ?

Paloma Picasso by David Downton 1999

Learn from this story about Picasso :

-There was a woman strolling along the streets of Paris, when she spotted Picasso sketching near a sidewalk cafe.

"Not so thrilled that she could not be slightly presumptuous, the woman ask- ed Picasso if he might sketch her, and charge accordingly. Picasso obliged. In just minutes, there she was: an original Picasso."

"And what do I owe you?" she asked. "Five thousand francs," he answered.

"But it only took you three minutes," she politely reminded him. "No," Picasso said, "It took me all my life."

Experience is very underestimated these days. But I think it is a matter of con- fidence and how much you value yourself. Because experience is priceless.
