    How do you know if your art work can be sold for profit?

    I love to paint canvas for a hobby now that I am unemployed. Could it be a hobby for profit?

    The only way you are going to find out is ......try it!. There are many venues where you can try to sell your art like E-bay, Amazon, Kijiji, local classifieds, flea markets ect. Take a photo, list your piece and see what happens. You may find yourself with a very lucrative new opportunity.  Good luck!

      Thanks point2make for your suggestions! I didn't know about Amazon and Kijiji. The first step seems to be the hardest. I'll give them a try

    The power of positive thinking will carry you as far as you can imagine.  Like point2make suggested, there are many great sites and places you can try. Also give etsy an attempt. My best wishes for you and your goals smile

      Thanks Olde Cashmere for your words of encouragement. I guess it takes a leap of faith and trial and error. I'll give etsy a try since others are having success with them.

    you can also try out ugallery.com they are an online art gallery that feature many artists, and if they approve your application and feel that you would be able to sell your art, then you know you can sell it.
