I hope you will check out an exciting new forum – YourArtMarketing.com. Chris O’Byrne of Online Arts Marketing and I have been getting a lot of questions aboutart marketing – online and off. I know I am delighted that people think it is worth asking me questions! I like that a lot. We both have also noticed that many times we get asked the same or similar questions very often … so it made sense to us that we have a forum all of us can come together and ask questions and get answers. This way, people will also have a chance to hear other people’s answers.
Your Art Marketing
There are 15 members signed up now … it is exciting! We have laid out a grid work of wonderful topics ~ and started to fill them in with art marketing information. Several of you have mentioned that you are wanting to look into different kinds of online marketing. I have written brief, but detailed, overviews of selling at Etsy and CafePress. I plan to write more overviews of other shops. And I am sure there will be shops that others can write the overview for shops that I know nothing about.
It is fun that several people have already shared resources with everyone that I knew nothing about!! It is wonderful to me to have this place where as artists (and supporters are welcome too) can get together and talk about what is important to us. The content is still being built up for sure. But especially being so new we are super-receptive to feedback to make sure this resource is usable to a wide variety of artists!!

Everyone gets a topic so people can see each other more easily!!
This is another bubblescape from the Simple Pleasures series. I have more yet – but there are not enough days for all the artwork I have. I hope you are still enjoying this series honoring simplicity and the beauty of daily living.
