Fine Art "garage sales"

I do a very limited set of art shows - I stopped traveling out of town and doing outdoor shows.  So, I have a limited ability to sell works [other than web and such].  Thus I have loads of inventory…Continue

Image Witness online image monitoring

I decided to test the Image Witness site, which allows you to have five images free to be monitored online [paid of course gets more].  I uploaded 3 images and just checked == two of them were used at sites with my permission.  One blogger, who is apparently also a photographer [and whose images are lovely] posted my image with my usual user name [VictoriaJZ] but without any link or other information.  He's followed by several thousand people and some of them have clicked Like - but I'm…See More

What is your website?

What are the best things about art fairs
marketing, selling, meeting like-minded artists, seeing great art, renewing friendships among artists, being challenged, meeting the public, renewing friendships in general
Best show ever and why
Private showings of 3WomenArt, involving myself and two others, have been enjoyable and, often, profitable. In terms of larger, public shows, it's a tie between Two Rivers/Metro Arts Expo and ArtFest Midwest, both well run and moderately successful for me.
Worst show ever and why
Stone Arch in St. Paul, MN: A storm blew up and wreaked havoc with my display tent. I was lucky and it wasn't too bad and on the whole, it was a good show.

I'll be doing this show as the last of my season and would appreciate any thoughts, reviews, hints and suggestions.  The last several shows have been alot of physical effort without much/any return, and I'd like to break whatever jinx is affecting me.  Thanks much.
