I am very pleased with the look anf FEEL of the finished works. If anybody could lend a handy piece of advice i would greatly appreciate it. Thaanks Mark

Hi Marky, welcome to the Acrylics Forum. One thing you might do is visit the Art Business Forum (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/channels.php?s=&channel_id=4). They have in that Forum a subforum called Internet Sales Strategies that has lots of good information in it.

Do you enter juried art shows regionally, as well as national shows? Have you set up a portfolio of your work? Have you approached galleries in your area about your work? These are just a few of the questions that may give you a few ideas, at least I hope so. :)
