small art

Well, I've been farting around with this off and on for days, trying to figure out how to add PayPal, etc., and I think I have it started, if not yet completely figured out.

My post last week about marketing generated so many great comments and got me actually focused, so, in the spirit of carpe diem, I ran with it and set up a separate blog for selling my small paintings. While I was playing with the initial set-up, Brian discovered what I was up to through my profile page, and promptly bought the first painting! I'm taking it as a good omen.

Please visit my small art blog and let me know if you have any ideas or feedback.

Oh Andrea, you are tempting me again. I immediately wanted to click on the paypal button and buy #2, simply because the first purchase was so easy. I think, however, that I will wait for a while until I buy another one. Others need to get a chance as well.

Temptation is a terrible thing, isn't it? BTW you now have pride of place in my sidebar. Who knows, maybe the lurkers will take notice?

Thanks for the support all. And if you, too, want a tasteful and oh-so-subtle sidebar button, just like Kyknoord's, email me! (Shameless, I know.)

I love the way the image wraps around the canvas on your small art. Aside from their serene beauty, that aspect makes the paintings very novel.

Clever, talented Andrea!!

When you're rich and famous can I say that I know you and that I knew you before you were?
