I have some tips from personal experience, as well as online references and advice from fellow artists that will help with your sales.
The First Step
Before we get into 'the meat' of things your very first step is Believe in yourself. Be confident about the accomplishments you've made.

How To Photograph Your Paintings
In this article I want to discuss a common problem that some traditional artists have. That's photographing your paintings. Whether it be for selling prints or just getting your art noticed online the importance of having paintings look great is key. If your fortunate enough to have a scanner for smaller pieces then that's great! But if your working on large canvases or paper then you can run into issues. The most common problem artists have are Glare, Blur and Color. All of which will be discussed in this article.
Anyone who has worked with acrylics and oils knows what a problem this can be when your trying to take a picture of a painting. This is not as much a issues for a artist working with watercolors
A friend of mine passed today after a hard fought battle with a brain cancer. We met through work at Last Minute Productions, He was the Graduate Assistant. We didn't get to know each other too personally but I would still consider him a friend. He was always smiling and happy. We even liked the same bands!! Which is hard since people don't know who they are. But I will always remember him smiling and upbeat, even through his struggle. You will be missed greatly, Andrew. RIP.
To less melancholy things...
Not much, the same old same old. I'm almost finished with my cups (pics on my instagram @hemamalstudios). Decided on what to do with my advance drawing project. Its drawing utilizing time. I decide to journal how I'm feeling and make two sets of doodles. Since I don't seem, to be 'connecting' with my work, I think would be a good way of trying to or at examining that 'disconnect' and maybe it'll help lead me to my artist style. At the very least, I can make some cool designs to use later. Kinda behind on my communication design and marketing class (the logo I'm making for my groups product). I'm really going to have to work to make time for those and a painting for my one year old nephew's birthday.
Yeah, haven't heard about me doing a present for him, have you? Yeah, my mom kinda called last week asking me what I was making for him. I hadn't planned on anything, mostly because I never go home on the breaks and his birthday is the 10th but they're having the party on the 15th. Guess who's going home? That's right, me. And my mom kind of implied that I should make him something. :/ I don't really mind and I love the little stinker, it's just finding the time that's making this difficult. Luckily, I was able to find a piece of would to use as the painting panel and I came up with the idea almost immediately. Going to be a bit stressful this week but thankfully break is next week which will give me enough time. Hopefully.
That's it for now.
