The Artist as Businessman

I belong to a couple of artist co-ops. As part of my responsibilities in one, I find myself in charge of the gallery today. Foremost, that means I am the "salesperson" of the day. I am reminded why I dropped out of showing my work in street fairs, festivals, or such events. I do have friends who are wonderful salespeople, have the gift of gab, and are good businessmen. Not me. Actually, I should say: not me for my own work; because I am fine with another artist's work.
