Thank you so much for your useful tips! I agree with you 100%. I'm sixty-three years old and never drew or painted anything before April 2017. I came to the Lowe Mill, Huntsville, AL and found a personal teacher. In a couple of weeks I made my first oil on canvas painting. In seven months I had a student exhibition. I work every day in the evenings, after taking care of my family. Before April 2017 my favorite show was "Lifetime". I watched this show every day. Since April 2017 I never watched TV, just painted. I opened an account on Instagram and the Agora Gallery found my artwork. It was a first step to my art career. On July 2017 I had back surgery with a brace installed in my spine. One week after surgery I restarted to work on my art. Due to complications after surgery,
I needed to take pain pills to continue my art work. When I paint then I forget about everything. Unfortunately I can't participate in the art fairs now because of my back. However, I participated in two large exhibitions entitled "Superfine DC" and "Spectrum Miami" last year. After that my portfolio was added to the Red Wood Media Group. I opened my website, an art store, and set up a Google search.
Marisa, all your suggestions are effective. In the first five minutes after opening my art store, one art collector bought two paintings. I was waiting on feedback from a buyer, because the buyer usually states the truth. After receiving feedback, I started to believe in myself. It was some amazing feedback.
