I just got an offer to buy out all my canvas pieces.. all 23 of them. I have no idea what this buyer intends but I get the impression its for resale. I tend to sell on the very inexpensive side…Continue

The ultimate easel / table?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Dalton James May 6. 1 Reply

This might not be the perfect place to post this... but - can't hurt. I need to either acquire or build the ultimate large-canvas-apparatus. A typical easel won't do it. So here my requirements, and…Continue

New website critiques needed

I migrated to Wix built site (very easy), and so far all I have done is moved artwork onto it. I need to "build it out"... but I want to do it right the first time. I know I need to:1) write full descriptions for each piece, but should I include thoughts about the creation, price, and should I include extra photos (like side and close-up shots)?2) should I have a dedicated page for new artwork or is that a waste of time?3) I have about 90 more pieces (smaller watercolor/pen and inks) that I…See More
