    Work seems to be worth more time once someone realizes the important reason for that work, as a designer I present my work as a skill. that shows the viewers how I formed the work.

    Hi , 🙂 I wonder if you could help me with this… I've just started to paint and I 'd like to start selling my artworks soon BUT I don't know which canvas to buy. I am in the beginning, so I can't sell my paintings for a very expensive price, therefore it wouldn't be worth to buy an expensive canvas, also, I am not very confident yet to buy an expensive canvas to work on. I wonder how bad a cheap canvas would be. Do you think a cheap canvas is very very bad or it's ok in relation to the time that it's going to last? thank you

    Thanks Cedar. enjoyed the one video I saw. I'm painting a few years and I wonder what you think of the fine art, and pixels website to try to sell art. I'm in a small town and have some of my work in an art gallery which is the only gallery in many miles. the owner has been very gracious and supportive. and the commission rate is very fair. I'd love to hear your thoughts when you find some time. thanks.. Joe

    Hi Cedar, I'm really enjoying your videos. I was wondering whether places like the online Saatchi gallery or similar online galleries that allow any artist to post their work and sell it are a good way to present one's work or get started. What are your thoughts on this?

    I would like to also add that it is unprofessional for professional artists to expect professional presentation for free.

    @cedar Lee thank you for taking the time to make this. I've been thinking of branching out as the current gallery representation I have is not really doing much for me at the moment. I actually worked as an assistant at a gallery that started as a co-op but later sold to a bigger gallery that basically turned it into a vanity gallery. Totally disgusting and rotten experience. It almost turned me off of the gallery world entirely. I never put any work in it, but tons of less experienced artists did, and I felt awful taking in their work. but it was a steady(ish) pay check so I sucked it up and didn't say much. long story, you are right, don't EVER put work in a gallery that charges rent if there's no co-op model involved.

    Thank you so much for sharing this information.

    Galleries would be the last place I would want to sell, for a number of reasons number one of which is the exorbitant commission costs and horrible contractual obligations. I prefer insetead to control how the buyers see my work on my own online gallery where I control the costs, risks enjoy the profits and exposure on a global not a local stage.

    It is easy to obtain highly secure e-commerce sites for this purpose and the buyer can speak to you directly allowing you to know your customer personally with no need for a middle-man to take the money they never worked for.

    It is far cheaper to fund an ecommerce site than to pay the commission fees and the numbers of site views is theoretically unlimited.

    The biggest issue using this means to sell work is how to actively raise the awareness drive the visits to your site from the biggest buyers. There are other logistical issues such as dealing with returns, damages through transit of loss of work in transit but these can easly be covered through apropriate insurance.

    All-in-all if you don't want to to pay massive percentages to a private gallery an online gallery may well be the way for you to go.
