Hi Clint,

Great series of articles- thank you! My website is an ongoing project and I particularly enjoy your thoughts on including prices online. I'm also going to try to send more "artist updates" - I usually send them every 4 - 6 weeks because I worry about imposing on people, but everytime I send one, I get some business! I'll shoot for every two weeks now. I look forward to more articles.
Best wishes,

Dear Clint, I am very impressed by the help you have so far given me by providing me with a Website and are sending me news on arts as well as articles. The present articles on how to sell your arts works is an eye opener. I will not hurry with reading and putting into practice what is said there. I would rather beg you to give me enough time to study and meditate on the article. I am equally exited about my website. Give me time equally to take time and prepare my arts works that I would like to put for exhibition and then carefully send them into the web. Wish you all the best.

Beautiful Artworks are on sales right now..if you are interested in arts and buying..please visit
thanks and God bless!

Dear Clint,
Please let me know how to contact you?
Need some help with my art.
Thank You


I am looking to sell this painting:

Beautiful original watercolor by American scenery artist Valfred Thelin (1934-1991). This painting, entitled "Woodbury," depicts a shovel leaning against the wall of a building adjacent to a wheat field, a rustic theme reminiscent of the style made famous by Andrew Wyeth. This work was created at Thelin's studio in Ogunquit, ME, circa 1970.

For the art lover, this a real bargain at only $200!

For those who are seriously interested, feel free to contact me at my e-mail address.



Fr Dinayen
I have been for too long away from the net. In 2011 a gang of armed robbers visited my arts studio meaning all the rooms of my house. They carried away my computer meaning I could not send and receive mills. They even took away my precious guiter, my televion decorder,my power point projector money and my clothing and many other precious belonging, I have also been sick and had to under go an operation in my nick I should be back in Cameroon by September.

Fr Dinayen
I will surely start my artistic connections when back in my country.I am impressed by the artical you have written to inspire artists in this period that I have been silent. I am starting to read them and I feel delighted to be feed with artistic principles.
