Obstacles

New work will be posted as soon as I can get the weather to cooporate with me. My house has bad lighting so I have to go outside to take good pictures. It's sunny today, but very cold and windy.

Maybe I should buy a lamp with natural light bulbs. Costly, but good investment.
I really would like to find a way to market my work into resellable items-prints, cups, cards, etc. Then I could put them on zazzle.com. I would also like to invest in a good printer.

There is a site called CraftCount.com that list the top 100 sellers in all categories on etsy. I check out the top artists selling and realized that they all had one thing in common.

Prints.

All were selling prints of their work. Even though I like doing one of a kind paintings, prints could up my sales. I could leave corporate America sooner.

Wish me luck!

  2. I always thought about the print thing, too. Lots of money to start up, I think the least expensive printer for art is a bit more than $500...yikes!

    I am sure you will get the success you deserve...one day we all will :)

  4. Thanks Kelly for sharing the info. I am going to check out the site. Would also love to leave corporate America sooner, I hate the thought of being wheeled out in a wheel chair someday and a gold watch!! (oh unless maybe it was a steampunk assemblage)! LOL

  5. I've had similar weather-based restrictions this week - roll on spring eh!

    And the eternal question - to print or not to print?! I'm still debating that one too ....
