How Much is Enough?

In just a few weeks, I’ll be heading to St. John’s to sell my artwork at the Craft Council of NL‘s Christmas Craft Fair. I have tons of new prints already in stock, but not a lot of paintings left. So this fall in the studio, I am painting more and more Smudge Herring pieces to bring to the Craft Fair.

Yesterday, I was asked if I should be painting something else. Do all the people who like my Smudge Herring paintings enough to buy one already have one? How many Smudge Herring paintings are too many? Is my Smudge Herring market already glutted? Maybe I should be painting something else, but I don’t want to. Does that make me a hopeless entrepreneur or a good artist? Both? Neither? What do you think?
