I have been really busy at the moment in my spare time getting all of the first set of canvas wall art prints ready for sale. I am happy to say they are now available at Beautifulbeaches.com.au in a range of sizes.
If you have visited this site before and looked through my photography and especially my poetry series, then some of the prints will be familiar (especially the image at the top of the site). Seeing these works make it onto canvas is very satisfying as it is much nicer to look at photography once it is printed. I have some sample shots giving an idea as to how the prints will look once they are on a wall.
If you are busy producing art at home you are probably looking at ways to present it to an audience. unfortunately, not many of us get the chance (or can afford) to display in a gallery. No worries though, because this was the old way of displaying art and you will have a much wider and appreciative audience online!
It seems that there is another new Internet fad that is taking off quickly to make the web even smaller. Yes, smaller, because every new, large site kills off hundred of unique, smaller sites. All of these websites (like Facebook and Twitter) run on the same premise:
Users must create all of the content.
The problem with this is where does this content really come from?
There are many personal sites sharing art and photography online; but, most of them do not sell any of their works. This is usually because it is a tough market to crack and when you are starting out it is the last thing on your mind. I am a firm believer in concentrating on the art first and the selling second because no-one is going to buy art and photography unless it speaks to them.
Many of us love to create in varying amounts and in varying mediums but the place to be at the moment for artists and art lovers seems to be the internet. While there is a lot of rubbish permeating around the ever expanding net there are refuges of creativity where you can find some wonderful hidden talent. So what is the best way for your own works to get noticed online?
