I’m just getting started with DPW and wanted to list some older pieces but am afraid they will look “stale” with a created date from a few years ago. I was doing still life’s but got into plein air bit want to sell some of my still lives . Any thoughts on that? If I just varnished them recently, can I say 2021 or is that lying??!!
I don’t put dates on paintings. I have sold some from a few years ago that are just fine. Paintings don’t go out of date!
I’m just using the create date of when I’m adding my piece.
Maybe as artist we over think the date. Realizing most galleries have rules about keeping things fresh. I believe if a piece of art hasn’t found the right buyer doesn’t mean it’s not a good piece of art. I do not put the date on my work. I do keep a personal record of my art. So posting something on DPW that’s new to the site then following posting rules I would think is okay. Follow site rules thereafter…
Great idea Never thought of that.
