How humbling life can be!

Alright, I'm laying it on the line today, folks ... this isn't going to be easy for me to say (damn pride!) but in all seriousness, you probably saw it way before I did anyway ... As from today, I'm lowering the prices of my portrait artwork ... It is the most humbling thing I have done since opening up this portrait business ... not because I've been knocked down into my place (also), but because I finally realised today that my message is more important to me than making money ...
