The majority of artists post their work to FAA Groups, hoping and waiting for something to happen. That is NOT promoting, .... it is archiving. This is done into an assortment of over 2000 FAA Groups.
EVERY ONE of our paintings NEEDS 1. Comments, 2. to be Favored, 3. receive Votes, 4. be featured in Groups, 5. have key words which relate with the painting, .... and 6. SALES ...( among some 25 things ) so the work is FOUND & PLACED by search engines. This is why it is NECESSARY for us to support one another.
PAY IT FORWARD = PAY IT BACK
1... IF ...you are one of 115 Scenic Landscape Painters that has been hosted/featured in this Gallery ...
2... Who needs and wants additional support for your work ...
3... Who is committed to being equally supportive in return ...
Randomly, here are six paintings ( they're mine ) which need support. I am seriously searching for those of you who are supportive, in like kind and need. OR .. select another, one to your liking from my portfolio. The idea, and important thing is ... to begin ...The more that you DO support , the more it will be returned. Be patient, not many will respond easily, quickly or are comfortable giving comments, favs, votes, etc. The only way to receive these .... is to give them.
Several have stated they wish there was just a group or section for artists / painters.
Seeking out and hosting over 100 of you from various separate FAA groups, isn't the total answer by any means, but it has gathered many together, of common interest, for easier finding, accessing portfolios, getting to know one another and for supporting.
As days pass, this Gallery will move back and be more difficult to find. You may use the Discussion Search and put in the title, " Scenic Landscape Painting ". and it come up to you, OR, you may copy and paste the link ( below ) to an email or folder file.
When your painting get feature into more than three groups, these don't all stay in view beneath your painting: the oldest drops away.
Many have gone back to the group and placed their " thank you for the feature " in the group discussion area.
You may wish to post a 'thank you" into the comments beneath your painting, ,,, making a permanent record .
It is debatable as to how important or of little influence, and / or distracting this might be to a buyer. It's for you to decide.
