@Jay2560 I love your idea of an online marketplace. I know Etsy is very popular, but I know all the fees they charge aren't. I'm leery of selling my art, mostly because I don't think it's that good. It's okay, but I don't think it's good enough for people to give me money for.

Now I have been kicking around doing a website where people can download pieces to color for a small fee, but that would be months away.

I haven't even come close to creating enough art to get past my family. My wife wants my latest to hang on the wall and my daughter wants something large for her wall. I like painting on the larger surfaces. Once I get a few that the family don't want, I may try to sell some.

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.

I think to date I've painted well over 200 paintings, and that's within 21 months. I started early May 2014. Believe me it doesn't take long before the family is used up. One thing that bothers me is so many relatives are displaying my early works and I can do so much better now. I have probably thrown away at least 50 paintings that I wasn't happy with. Some I sell at the flea market for ridiculous prices like $3.00. People will buy anything if they think they are getting a great bargain. But most of my paintings run from $10 to $50 depending on the quality and size. I hope some day to sell a painting for over $100 and feel the painting was actually worth it, but if it doesn't happen I'm OK with that. It's all just a game to me.

I think you need a smart phone to use instagram and I don't use one.

Leigh Ann I only saw a couple of your artwork but it looks really good and seems well suited for one of those adult coloring books. They are really popular now and some artists have done quite well with it. You can make an ebook with your art and try selling it as a download.

kind some sneaky way to advertise your site haha - please dont take offense but lets do an honest talk here
you didnt create a website. you ordered webspace, booked an url and put up a wordpress installation with a paid theme
designed to make money with people creating ads on that theme.

i mean alright fair enough but i dont think you will come far with it since youd have to like built campaigns and such
to get somewhat of a user base and earn their trust etc etc. stuff thats already established on many big sites like ebay..
even amazon...

reach for the stars and chase your dreams but dont fall for illusions

best of luck m8
