How do you get started selling your art?
I've been painting a lot, but never wanted to sell. I give my art as gifts, and of course it has been filling up my walls. Now I'm ready to sell... where do I start??
There are a lot of places online that help artists sell their art (imagekind.com being one) - kind of like etsy but for artists, I believe.
There is also a website that helps you set up your own site within their website - faso.com (Fine Art Studio Online).
Galleries typically charge a 40% commission which is a lot, but if you get to be good enough to be accepted by a gallery then you have the openings and all the marketing that goes with being represented by one.
Haven't checked out any of these things in depth so hope I have my facts somewhat straight here - at least it's a start.
www.starvedartists.com is a great place for photography but they also have other art as well (I believe)

I am considering selling my paintings. Where I live there aren't really any galleries that do it. I was wondering how it can be done online. I've seen people selling on Ebay but they don't seem to sell much. Does creating your own website and advertising do it? or what? I'd love suggestions. Thanks.

Are you an artist if you don't sell your work?
