Your Profitable Art Sales

by Lori Woodward on 8/29/2017 10:00:07 AM
23 Comments

I no longer use the "per square inch" comparative pricing formula. Arbitrarily basing my prices on what someone else charges, doesn't take into account my framing, medium, substrate and payment for my expertise. The frames and substrates I choose are up to me, and also the venue and buyer of my work. [...]

What about Art Festivals?

by Carolyn Henderson on 8/14/2017 9:40:09 AM
7 Comments

There is no secret path to success. There are no surefire tips. There is no method which we can copy to get the results that another artist did, because we do not share their background, their thought process, their opportunities, challenges, and disadvantages. While we can learn from their story, the major message never changes: the one constant involves hard work, perseverance, determination, grit, and independence. [...]
