Does anyone have advice on how to sell more art? I live in an area where its hard to get people to buy anything, especially to give you enough money for what the art is worth. I draw very realistic pieces, rather large ones as well and people just dont seem to understand I dont want 20 dollars for something im expecting at least 500 for. I would love to make art a full time career. I also am not a fan of social media for ex: facebook ,instagram, or whatever but i do however love this website, an

selling art is hard to do. you'll probably want commission work. on this site, you'll want to scan the work in, as i see some softness and i see cropping issues. more keywords and more advertising overall.

Any suggestions? I have many pieces up for years and no problem.

Its because it takes 24 hours after posting a picture for it to appear in the search. :)

Today I went on a mission, I was looking for a marble boulder to sculpt and I could not find any locally. I had to settle for a 70 lb. sandstone boulder it has some quartz and mica. I worked on it some 6 hours using only hammer and chisels no power tools of any kind. It's coming along fine but the next one is going to be marble. The sandstone is to fragile. I made a video: https://www.facebook.com/mario.carta.125/videos/10212742657069829/?t=40
