I have started an Artist Directory on Facebook which I think could be an awesome way to promote your art, more info here:

Leave it to Nolan to bump me out of my comfort zone!   :fight: Something I was planning to do later this year was to build a web site and create an Art page on Facebook, emphasis on Later!  :2funny:

ok, so I busted a move on the web site today. http://www.stevelemkeart.com and did the FB page last night when the Directory page went up https://www.facebook.com/pages/Steve-Lemkes-art/258270661039600?ref_type=bookmark.  The web site is active, but I have a lot of caption information to list for all the art I posted.  If you care to have a look and can give some feedback I'd love it.  First time for me creating a website, although it's similar to the myspace format from a few years ago...  I left the elements very simple to focus more on the art rather than site design.  Too spartan?  I know the Bio is pretty short (which it should be I think).  I know wrapping this old brain around it took most the day! ;)

awesome job on your website Steven :congrats:
What I suggest you do is add a sign up form to the bottom of the home page so you can email people when you update your website. I suggest Mailchimp as they have a start free option which should be more than enough for a long time O0

Thanks Didwaud!

Great suggestion Nolan, I've seen that feature on other's sites and it's a great idea to bump the people interested in your site now and then!  I'll look at Mailchimp.. O0

And done... I will use the same email form for both newsletter sign ups and inquiries... if that makes sense... take a look and let me know...  now to add the pricing info, and I have not hooked up with Pay Pal yet...

Nolan, Can I add a link to my Etsy and FineArt America sites, or is it for personal sites only? I had to shut down my personal site. Couldn't afford it.

That might be too much of a challenge for me. Every time I click over to it, I turn around and click right back out. It's a mess.

Is it possible to use Mailchimp on a Facebook page?
