What Are Your Thoughts On Prints? and Caribbean Nights Painting

IMG_4717inv-12468764bb - compressed.jpg

So Lately I've Been Thinking About Prints ..

Where's the best place to list them, offer them, and maybe sell them? Should I be looking for an online shop that does it all for me or should I be considering having my own printed and selling them on a site like ebay or esty? I have no clue..

Should I even be considering selling prints at all?

Really though, is there even a market for my art? I think we all.. all of us artists.. ponder this type of stuff sometimes. I'm not looking to get rich selling my art, or looking to make a name for myself. I am simple looking to generate some good vibes, boost my self esteem and maybe grab a little fiat for new supplies and a beer. Not too much to ask I think.

So Being New To The Art Talk Community..

I figured I would put something out there about this topic to see what others are doing or thinking. I really have no clue where to begin if I would decide that this is something I would like to do. Any advice would be appreciated.


The Art .. 'Caribbean Nights' ..

This piece above is a digital altercation to a watercolor painting I made a few months ago. I changed it to be a little less realistic and a bit more festive and fun. To me it represents the feeling of relaxing outdoors, at a Caribbean resort, on a warm and beautiful night. I can almost hear the island music along with the sound of the warm island breezes, as they blow through the palm leaves creating a wonderful rustling sound.

I think the pastel colors, cool and warm tones, help bring memories of past trips right to the forefront of my mind. I remember those warm tropical nights, where I was spending some much needed time just enjoying life. I was really, really enjoying the whole experience. Of course it was only a matter of time before I had to return to reality. Memories are a priceless thing if you really think about it. So much of my art is created around my experiences and memories.

But, Can I Make Someone Else Feel That Through My Art?

Enough to buy a print of it even?

Guess I won't know unless I try.

Watch out for the human traffickers at hivefest. You wont know it until its too late. STAY AWAY! Beware, traffickers can be women or men! They will act nice until they dont. There is human trafficking going on around this type of crypto. I have witnessed it. They literally have attempted my murder and are trying to kill me with V2K and RNM. Five years this has been happening to me, it started here, around people that are still here. Homeland security has done nothing at all, they are not here to protect us. Dont we pay them to stop shit like this? The NSA, CIA, FBI, Police and our Government has done nothing. Just like they did with the Havana Syndrome, nothing. Patriot Act my ass. The American government is completely incompetent. The NSA should be taken over by the military and contained Immediately for investigation. I bet we can get to the sources of V2K and RNM then. https://ecency.com/fyrstikken/@fairandbalanced/i-am-the-only-motherfucker-on-the-internet-pointing-to-a-direct-source-for-voice-to-skull-electronic-terrorism ..... https://ecency.com/gangstalking/@acousticpulses/electronic-terrorism-and-gaslighting--if-you-downvote-this-post-you-are-part-of-the-problem if you run into one of them you may want to immediately shoot them in the face. 187, annihilate, asphyxiate, assassinate, behead, bleed, bludgeon, boil, bomb, bone, burn, bury, butcher, cap, casket, choke, chop, club, crucify, crush, curb, decapitate, decimate, deflesh, demolish, destroy, devein, disembowel, dismember, drown, electrocute, eliminate, end, euthanize, eviscerate, execute, explode, exterminate, extinguish, finish, fry, grind, guillotine, gut, hack, hang, hit, ice, implode, incinerate, kill, liquidate, lynch, massacre, maul, microwave, mutilate, neutralize, obliterate, off, pop, poison, punnish, quarter, ruin, shank, shock, shoot, shred, skin, slay, slaughter, smoke, smother, snipe, snuff, squish, stab, strangle, stone, suffocate, suicide, SWAT, swing, terminate, torture, terrorize, whack, waste, wreck.

Not sure I can really help you there. I have a feeling that dealing with all of the shipping might be the most aggravating part of the whole thing. I hope you figure something out though. There have been a couple of your pieces that I might have considered buying if the price was right :) Do you have any local galleries that you can work with to have them display and sell them? What about flea markets? I know you probably don't want to get that involved, but you might be able to find someone who already has a booth that will be the middle man for you.

Your NO help at all Bozz! lol. I did look into local venues at one time and realized that I really have no time. haha. A middle man is a good thought though! Thanks for that idea. I may know a few people. See... You are a big help! 😁

I'll have to look into a few things. Like I said, it would be nice to buy a few beers with or new art supplies.

Good question. I haven't sold my art. I have some really cool ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) pictures I am considering making NFTs. It seems that the work to figure out where the art would sell and managing another system is too much for me personally. I will be interested to see what others say.

Oh cool. I like ICM and often try for some cool shots using all sorts of manipulation.. mostly in low light with a lengthy shutter speed. Selling art is such an undertaking. I often think that it may just give me something fun to do in retirement (if that ever comes around - lol). I've sold a few here and there but was thinking that some may just want to spend a few dollars rather than a few hundred.

THANK YOU for the generous HIVE gift 😁. You did not need to do that.

Jarvie?? Are you related to the the guy I used to know from Steem/Hive that likes to hike with his dogs? Or maybe I am thinking of someone else. If so ignore my ramblings lol.
