Curious as to how others might list their prints on E-Bay. I can't seem to generate any traffic to my auction....suggestions??

I was looking at your auction, it says original, but then under style it say impressionist.
So is it an actual painting, did you paint it, or is it a print out of a painting, because you say prints in your question, but your ad on Ebay says, original pastel painting.
I was just wondering which it was?

try more keywords in the title - eg "lilies", "flower", "florals" "shabby chic" "minature" are all highly searched terms.

Some artists are wary of listings being pulled for using the trademarked term "shabby chic" but I don't think the trademark extends to ACEOs, paintings and prints...i think it's homewares only. If you are worried try "chic and shabby" or similar which has the same result.

I'm assuming you're talking about the 3rd auction, the floral one. The others seem to be originals? (which are lovely, by the way!)

I would list either in the prints category, or is there an ACEO category? (I don't know.) Or miniatures? Take out the words limited edition from your title - you say that in the description and also have chosen repro as the specifics - so you're wasting valuable keyword space! :) Deborah mentioned some ideas, I also though of florals, flower, miniature.

Absolutely lovely pictures, they should sell well!

Thanks, I'll give it a shot. I'm quite sure I understand "chic and shabby" can you tell me more?

Your work is very good but the pics lack contrast and luminosity. I wonder if maybe you could adjust them through your photo editing program?
