Special Promotions And A Note About Prices

Easter Themed Canvas Print Sale

I have been busy the past month or so but first off, I wanted to bring my Easter Themed special promotions to your attention.

You’ll find these three canvas prints at the links below: Praying At The Altar In Puebla Cathedral Magical Bell Tower in Mexico Papal Cross On A Frosty Day in Dublin … Continue reading

The Price Of Art Merchandise

Paris In The Rain Art Throw Pillow

This is a subject for both the art-lovers and the art-makers out there. It’s a topic which I’d say I ruminate on at least annually, and that’s whether or not to offer art merchandise in addition to prints. Once upon a time, I was more active on Zazzle.

London Palace of Westminster After Dark

I’ve done an incredibly bad job of delivering updates this year. There, I said it before anyone else had a chance. It’s one of those classic stories of having the best of intentions. Every so often I would think, gosh, I should tell everyone about insert cool news here. On the bad side, there’s probably plenty of really cool stuff I’ll forget to tell, but that likely means a shorter update! See, I knew there was a positive spin in there somewhere. You all know how long-winded I can be. … Continue reading

Getting Seen – Selling Art Online

Festive Streets of Old Quebec Photo Art

I’ve had this topic bouncing around in the back of my mind for well over a month now, and the topic of visibility in selling art online is a huge one.

Most of my tips for selling art online will be fairly general but some will be with an … Continue reading
