Art Inspiration; Art Paintings And Selling Your Art-Finding Inspiration Near Home
Need some inspiration? As artist, there will eventually come a day that your thoughts are restless as you try to find inspiration for your next masterpiece. I have found it very helpful to view other paintings and forms of art when I am clueless for ideas. Sometimes it only takes a quick view at a painting to find the inspiration that you need. Whether you paint landscapes, people, animals, or cities, it can be very beneficial to view the work of others. Take a moment to unwind and settle down, clear your thoughts. Any artist can appreciate the work of others. They share the same dedication and passion as you do. Grab your inspiration.
SELLING YOUR PAINTINGS
When it comes to selling your art, there are several different approaches to take. One of the best ways to see your art is on Ebay. You can join Ebay for free, but it will cost you a little bit of money. The good thing is that it is not much at all. Think about it for a moment, you can reach the entire world from your living room computer. Millions of people are online daily and the searches for art are in the millions as well. You can go on Ebay and sell your paintings at auctions or you can list a set price on your work.
Another possible place to sell your paintings or art is in a local art gallery. Results will depend on where you live, but it is well worth trying. The advantage will go to those who live in big cities, such as New York, Chicago, Paris, or London. In high populated cities, chances are, you will have access to a variety of different tattoo galleries. Tattoo galleries often have auctions, perhaps you can enter one. I am sure you will have to pay a set free, but your paintings will probably sell higher at auction.
For those of you that live in smaller cities or towns, there are still plenty of options. Even small cities and towns usually have a art store or thrift store. Take the time to talk to the owner and see if they might be interested in your art. If not, it is possible that they might hang your work up in their store and sell it. You will never know if you don't try. Your art won't sell itself.
EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT WHEN IT COMES TO ART
It is very easy to get frustrated when your trying to sell your art. In order to be successful, you have to be able to reach the right people. Ebay gives you the perfect platform to reach those people. If you haven't signed up yet, make sure you do. Many people are turned away due to the fact that there is a cost, but all the benefits outweigh the small fees that you will endure on Ebay.
Remember, everyone is different when it comes to art. This is exactly why art is unique. You can take several different people looking at the same art and they all will see something differently. What one sees as trash, another will see as gold. Remember, everyone has a different taste when it comes to art.
One of the best ways to make a steady income is finding steady customers. If you are fortunate enough to find someone that adores your work, make sure you take care of them. This is simply common sense. For one, they are likely to come back. Secondly, anyone who buys your art is free advertisement. More then likely, your art will be viewed by others when you begin selling your paintings or art. The more art you sell, the more potential for new customers.
INSPIRATION IN A WALK
Sometimes, we can find inspiration just by doing the simple things in life. I have come to find that a simple walk can be all the inspiration I need for my next painting. If you haven't tried this, at the least, give it a chance. Take a walk and take in mother nature. Take a good look around and find something to paint. It can be a house, bird, tree, mountains, or a store front. I am sure you will find something.
Being a local painter does have advantages. If your still having trouble selling your art, go to a local business and paint their shop. Personally, I would paint first and then see if I can spark their interest. If they see a great painting of their shop, they are very likely to buy it, especially if you are local. You would be surprised how good this works. I live in a small town and I have been fortunate enough to sell many paintings this way. Whether it is a local shop or historic monument, you can find inspiration near home. Thanks for your visit.
