Creating ways to Sell Art part #1

with 7 comments

I been looking over old drawings and monotypes that I’ve created over the years and have decided to put them up for sale. I love them, but I think it’s time for some one else to love them as well. I’m developing a site where they can be purchased. You will be able to find the link next week here and on

  2. Thanks Angela. How are your sales of prints etc. Have you found this to be an effective way to sale some of your work? I’ve a lot of older paintings and drawings that I’ve not shown in a long time and thought I should make some into prints.

  3. Dear Bob, I sell prints in some public places, not galleries, it’s going ok, not something to live of but helps.
    The postcards are good, because I sell them bulk to shops and then they sell it for me so I get paid for it straight away.
    I never sold sketches, so I have no idea about the market there. But your drawings look really good it would probably go very well.
    I have a lot of enquiries through internet so I am thinking about setting up a shop online, pay pal only, have you ever thought about that too?

  4. Hi Angela, I’ve set up a Paypal store. The site is called I want to be very active in having my work available for sale. I don’t have a pricing strategy, but I will figure that out later. For now the most important thing I feel is to get feedback from the universe and grow from there. I also intend to make prints of some of my older paintings that I don’t intend to show at a gallery. Thanks again for your feedback, you are a great support.

  5. Bob,

    I’ve just stumbled here from somewhere, and with a little poking about found this post.

    I’m always in awe of people who have been/are going to art school, and I’m even more in awe of people who create art that other people want to buy.

    It is quite a wonderful process, I imagine.
    And you’ve got some rather beautiful pieces on your site.

    Take care,

  6. ams, thanks for stopping by. I had started to view your site about a month ago and appreciate your creativity and point of view. Have you shown your work in galleries or other forums?

  7. “Have you shown your work in galleries or other forums?”

    Gosh, no.
    I post online in a couple of locations, but the world of galleries and people wanting something of yours in their personal space seems terribly far away.

    I’ve been looking around your site a little more, and am enjoying your meditations on these things.
