I read about this place on facebook. If you can get featured it can make a big impact. Other than that they have some useful articles.

Natalie,

Thanks for that link.  I read the article about NOT giving out your business card, but taking a prospective client's email address instead.  That way, you control what happens after they leave.

Great idea.

Natalie we have a psychic bond.....you are are also following Colour in Your Life on Facebook.....I had a look at it....There is a $20 entry cost to be "featured" but you are only featured if picked by the jury.

The articles are good but at this stage I think I would rather enter my painting in the local show as I can connect with the locals who are more likely to come to my studio and buy my work (and it's only $2 a painting to enter LOL)

Whoever said "It's as slow as watching paint dry" was obviously not an acrylics painter

I saw it on tips and tricks for artists Jackie.
I think we need a new topic for favorite blogs and facebook pages.
