When a local person saw some of my other animal images at the local Visitors Center, she called me up and ordered a print of her own dog, Irie. She had a nice photo showing his bright blue eyes. I am delighted that a few orders have come in for people asking me to make their own animal companions into these Enhanced Animal Imges.

In yesterday’s post I talked about online marketing and the next steps to take. I asked for feedback and Chris O’Byrne (www.onlineartsmarketing.com) made a suggestion to start an Ebay store. Chris said that if I made $16 per month, I would cover the costs.
Chris also suggested that I could put single items up for bid and have an “About Me” page. This fits better in with my budget and seems a good way to ease in. I have a couple of friends who have sold there before. But even though they are artists, they sold camera equipment or antiques. But still I can ask them for hints.
Chris also made the suggestion to make a separate website for my enhanced animal images. I am not sure if I will make a separate site within this site (www.dianeclancy.com) for these images – as I have for this blog – or not. It would be a way that I could work out the bugs on shopping carts and my redesigning my art galleries. That might help it feel a little less overwhelming. That begins to sound like a plan.
