Art marketing has become more than just getting your artworks featured at an exhibit or gallery.
With the Internet, artists now have another avenue to sell their pieces.
The best thing about social networks is that it gives you a chance to socialize to see and to be seen
BUILD YOUR AUDIENCE.
Well worth the effort, you are building a brand and a entertainment network. Post regularly and shamelessly plug in your social media handles - it will pay off down the road. When building your audience, it’s important to interact with those you are hoping to reach. Post ‘Work In Progress’ , ask for feedback. People love to be a part of something.
NETWORKING AND SOCIALIZING.
Create your place in the community by getting to know others in the business. This is one of my favorite things about FAA it is the best ways to expand your horizons and meet like-minded individuals, share ideas and tricks and be inspired.
It can also open doors to further opportunity and meet potential clients.
Join groups get involved its fun.

The best part of selling the original image is that it is gone. There is no more damage I can do to it, for better or worst.
I oftimes will look at a canvas sitting against the wall years later and think what if? What if the colors where brighter, darker? Or I may even see a part of the composition or drawing that needs help. Boom – I am back at it many time even after I have made print sales and posted it on Fine Art America. Sometimes working on it for several hours then deciding it was better before and then wiping off the wet paint.
This Brookie flash is a great example, I have sold prints of both pictured here.
Does anyone else do that? do you have examples?
