Do you have Trouble selling your Art?

Do you have trouble selling your Art or Crafts online? Not to sure where to turn ? Here is a list from over at Artsy Shark that may give you some ideas or places to look into. I’m know that I’m going to try some of them out to see what happens. I’m not endorsing any venues; these are a resource only. I’m am going to check some out and if I have any luck I will report back.

I’m on Deviant Art,Fine Art America and A Singular Creation Art Community with just a small offering but they have a nice contest listing. I still have been unsucessful at selling anything yet. I really would like to know if any others have some thoughts on where to try.

About lion6255

I am a multidisciplinary experimental artist. I have turned my attention to experimental Fractals. A lot of my Art Images are of Fractals and for those who do not know what a Fractal it is an image built with math, a repetition of the same geometric module over and over, Self same similarity if you will, with different dimensions, according to a mathematical function. Fractal geometry is a new way of looking at the world; we have been surrounded by natural patterns, unsuspected but easily recognized in everything and everybody. I use several different programs to blend and manipulate the range of possibilities allowed through my choices. Some may not consider my work Art but I assure you I put as much work, blood sweat and tears if not more into my work. I believe that the quality of the actual work is what is paramount. Please visit my work and won't you be the judge let me know what you think!

    A great start with some great research results. I like that you share some facts about each site, as well.
    I like FAA, DA, RedBubble, Zazzle, though my sales have been limited to Zazzle and mostly to friends/relatives.
    🙂

      i also like Singular Creation but there you have to be prepared to ship the clients purchase out. And being a starving artist I can’y always comply with that so I have put anything much up. The site is awesome though. Thanks for your thoughts!
