I plan on going to a down town area next time and selling. Its much more classy and will bring more artistic clients/ buyers and ts a great way to make contacts and see how people react to your art! And Its a learning experience.
Oohh yes i had forgotten about the other thread u created this one and put a side note but yes i sold two paintings! And am planning another trip but instead of the flea market Im aiming a little higher in a Down town area actually surrounded by local galleries that way Im able to sell my art for a more reasonable price. I am more excited about this one because its a different level of exposure. But i did get a lot of great feedback on my art and made a few contacts for a couple of requests. It was a learning experience and found many ways i can improve also!
I don't know if we are advanced or not, but at this time I notice a boost of home-craft business. Because of the low employment situation many people try to do their best at home and create different pieces of art (paintings, jewlery, sewing ect.) and then sell it on art markets. But I wouldn't say that sales are so successful that you could make a living of it. Maybe for few individuals.
Well I went to an art fair, it was nice, because of the rain there were no lots of visitors, I didn't sell much but I met lots of other srtists, it was really really great. We exchanged our experiences and talked about our art work. Was really fun!
