Great site Sharon, congratulations! I agree with Fi, maybe with the addition of showing multiple framing options with different pricing levels. You may be able to have just one page with the various frameing options shown, with the painting the the customer is interested in superimposed in the frame selected. If that is to fancy, then just frame a picture in each option and show those.

Congrats again and good luck.

very neat website, congrats :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

I suggest you now rewatch the website videos in the Hobby into Business course (especially the QnA video) to see what you need to fix - I have listed everything there, but the main things were:

1) if selling an artwork with a frame you need to show the frame.
2) there are no social sharing buttons O0

 :thankyou: so much, Barry, Nolan, Natalie, Jill, Patricia, Annie & Danielle! Sorry for the delayed response - I've been training with my husband this week (my side job!)

Here's the problem with posting paintings framed - I have a special deal with my framer - he only charges me $75 to mat/frame any size painting. In exchange, I have to give him framer's choice - which has been exceptional.  So I can't really post a framed version of my paintings since I have no idea what the frame will be. I'll keep pondering this and see if I can come up with a solution...

And Nolan, there is a link to my facebook page.  Even though I have twitter and linked in accounts, I rarely use them - although I probably should but my time is so limited as it is that to manage 2 more social media accounts is a bit overwhelming right now.  I'll definitely review the  Hobby into Business video...always good to have a refresher!!

And I'm a big believer in karma too, Natalie!

OK - I'm getting closer to letting the public see it now!!
Cheers,
Sharon
