Another crazy idea....

Started this discussion. Last reply by Rick Wallace Sep 21. 16 Replies

I've gotten great advice here (got talked out of the walk-in art trailer, but I did buy a trailer for transporting art)... but I like to keep things moving and try to think differently. I recently…Continue

How can I move to more upscale images?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Larry Berman Aug 9. 12 Replies

When I post my canvas art online to sell I usually just take a 18mp (Canon T3i) image, correct the perspective/distort to the get the edges straight and remove all the background (see sample)... what…Continue

anyone else have a non de plume (alias)?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Rick Wallace Jul 13. 12 Replies

In the last 2 weeks I've sold 34 pieces with 3 more pending. I'm averaging $96.50 each (which is of course cheap for a 36x48 original on canvas) but I'm self employed and need the income. I buy all…Continue

Suggestions needed from enclosed trailer owners....

Started this discussion. Last reply by GEORGE NEUBERGER Jul 10. 3 Replies

Help, please. The last time I posted here I was about to buy an enclosed trailer, which I did. Then that led me to try and invent ways to put 70+ large canvas pieces in one place and they not STICK,…Continue

"After all the feedback here I decided to try a small test and left one piece bungeed to a pole at a light. Within 10 minutes a truck with an older couple pulled into turn around area, woman got out and went up and looked at he piece carefully and…"

"Rick, I’ve read your post and the responses to it and I’d say if your heart is in this project, just do it. Just do it. The country is gripped by utter madness right now, with blubbery good ole boys carrying semi automatic weapons in the…"

"wouldn't the same be true for yard sale signs, houses for sale signs, credit repair, etc? I did think about this though. I've picked out 8 spots that are on straightaways and three lanes each side. My son thinks its better at stoplights, I…"

"Same here. On the street could be a really bad idea. If there is a crash because of a distracted driver, you might be liable in some way."

Judy Christian replied to Rick Wallace's discussion Another crazy idea....
"No,  I do not equate selling with respect. I wanted to let you know that asap because I don't mean to offend you. I like when people who see/purchase my work appreciate it. The selling, the money part, comes from need, as that is my…"

Franklin Piuck replied to Rick Wallace's discussion Another crazy idea....
"Rick, I am not sure that putting your art in unconventional places is a mitzvah.  Very likely it is an extra burden on your community's sanitation workers who will be hauling it to a dump.  Our appreciation of art is significantly…"

Rick Wallace replied to Rick Wallace's discussion Another crazy idea....
"Offhand it sounds like you equate selling as respecting. Sometimes doing for the sake of doing it, then letting it go can have it's own benefits. If you become attached to your art you might be thinking about it as some sort of…"

Peggy Crago replied to Rick Wallace's discussion Another crazy idea....
"That's true.  People don't even like it, which baffles me.  At lower end shows, I'd hear comments about my work like you could get it cheaper at Target, and the like.  The pieces I give to Goodwill are not salable, or…"

Judy Christian replied to Rick Wallace's discussion Another crazy idea....
"Peggy has good points. We artists work hard to get into the best shows so that the people who see our work will appreciate it. We know that only a select few have a desire to own our pieces, and that is even speaking about successful artists. …"

Rick Wallace replied to Rick Wallace's discussion Another crazy idea....
"I have always believed that art is meant to be shared. I get a lot of joy out of painting/drawing, and have no problem donating some of my art to the world. Museums have been closed and no art festivals. I guess this is my way of keeping art in the…"
