  1. Hello, i’m also interested but here in France it will be too late (I imagine 2am?)
    …it’s possible to have a recordered version?
    Thanks for you answer

  2. Great and much needed topic. I create two distinctly unique styles – one more traditional tonalist work and a more contemporary landscape using texture and palette knives. To avoid collector confusion – I’ve had to keep the two styles of artwork separate in the public.

    I just found a great local “home” for my more contemporary collection in a new local gallery. My question is this – do I price my contemporary textured work less as it’s not framed? It is created on museum wrapped canvas – not framed.

  3. Thank you for a great topic and for answering my question, guys. To clarify the question you didn’t understand, the ‘licence for vinyl’ was for a 1-time larger reproduction where the customer worked directly with the vinyl producer using the image I provided. It would also be a useful answer for artists fee for vinyl wraps on signal boxes that are becoming popular.

  4. I’m just now seeing this and have missed the time to sign-up….is there anyway I could get a copy of the recorded event to hear all of the great information that was shared?

    Thank you in advance,

    Deborah Freeman-Voizin

  5. GREAT TOPIC!! I have 2 “series”. One is abstract and one is a nature series. I find it works well to have different galleries. I am experimenting with my first embellished giclee. Thank you for talking about pricing for giclees.

  6. I have a substantial portfoloio on FineArtAmerica.com
    I get lots of hits every week and a few compliments too but almost no sales. I understand that there are 250,000 to 300,000 artists on that site!!! So, how do I get recognized among so many thousands of others competing for viewers and buyers? I cant count on people just browsing and maybe finding me, maybe not.

  7. I intentionally started my art career (9 years ago) with a line of greeting cards, small prints and art jewelry (I transfer my images onto sterling silver and brass and seal it with an eco-resin). I have paid our family holidays by selling these to over 80 stores across USA, Canada, France, the UK and Spain. Through this I learned how to do cold calls, set up appointments and present myself in a natural and professional manner. It built up my confidence as an artist as I realized that I do have a market for my images. I have sold original paintings and received commission work from selling $4 greeting cards in stores. In the mean time, I continue to paint to produce a coherent and professional body of work. I was just in France for my first big solo show in a beautiful gallery downtown Paris that I entirely organized myself with a very successful outcome. Also, I am pleased to finally hear someone in the art world saying that limited digital print is somewhat ridiculous. In 9 years selling various size archival prints, I only had 2 people asking me about numbering. Most people buy the print because they love the art and are happy to be able to bring it home at an affordable price. I tell those that want art value to buy the originals! I am delighted to hear and read your art advice, they reaffirm my experience that there are many ways to make a good living as an artist, especially today with internet and its endless potential. Your pod casts are heart felt, sincere and very informative and I thank you for sharing your outlook and experience as a gallery owner.

  8. I forgot to say that I like to call my greeting cards “flyers that people buy”. Every time someone buys a card, they mail it to someone, so that is actually two people that get to know my work. In 9 years I sold close to 15,000 cards so that is many people that got to know my art! Although I don’t focus much on this line as producing original art is now my main goal, it was a great way to get me started, build my confidence and share my work with a wide audience.
