FYI: Market Tip #2

With the age of cyber space, it's so important to get into the social networking society.  Blog or blogging is so user friendly.  Anyone can do it, believe me when I did  my blog a couple of years ago, I was one step above getting my email.  Talking to friends I've found the hardest part for them to understand is the down sizing of a photograph.  I use Google's Picasa, a free photo editing software that makes your pictures look great, plus lets you edit and down size for uploading to the Internet.  For more information and step by step how to, just "google' Picasa and go to the bottom of the page and click on Getting Started Guide.

A few years ago I was lucky enough to take a workshop in Austin Texas with Carol Marine and Karin Jurick.  (check out both of their blogs    http://karinjurick.blogspot.com/    http://carolmarine.blogspot.com/  )  Both artist, plus a couple of their friends, said that once they started blogging they started selling more art.  Karin & Carol both got query's from several galleries requesting to have them as a clients.   It not only shows the public what you are working on, but shows galleries the quality and quanity of work you are producing.
