    Great article! I just rlntceey was asked to donate one of my paintings to a cause which is near and dear to my heart (one that I donate monetarily to regularly). I proposed the 50% of my proceeds idea and in fact added that if they earned more than my normal fee, I would still only require 50% of my normal fee . I was just informed that the committee rejected my offer and heard that one of the comments during this decision making process was, well, she just wants us to sell her painting ! I am speechless and insulted. I will not let this hamper my own decision in donating monetarily to worthy causes , but this certainly sheds new light on those that just love my work so much that they wonder if I would be so kind as to give it away along with my self respect! They stated as their official reason that the donor who bid on the piece would only be able to write off a portion of what they paid, since I would have been returned some of the profit. Although I believe the person who bid on the piece should be delighted that this particular artist does not give away her artwork, and therefore might see it as an advantage, this does bring up a valid point. Do you have any thoughts on this?
