The challenge struggling artists face in the art commissions world is making ends meet. Most struggling artists need to find clients interested in their work and build a relationship with them. At the start, artists who risk it all by charging less for their craft just to get their foot in the door may regret this further down the line. In the competitive world of fine art and in particular art commissions, the need for regular income is such that artists may begin to sell their artwork at half price.
However, this habit often backfires, as art galleries displaying their work cannot sell such artwork at a profit. So, the best advice to budding artists is that they are patient and that they remember that selling art is a challenge for most artists because exposure and success does not happen overnight.
