Amazing talent, I appreciate how you can put a slightly darker twist in your watercolours. They are much more pleasing to me than soft, watery, fluffy bunny pictures.... not that they too don't have their own place in art.

Can I ask, how did you go about selling your work in the beginning? And did you find it difficult to find a gallery to take your pieces?

  First, make sure that your artwork matches or is compatible with what they already carry. 

Second, At first I got into galleries because of being in juried artshows.  When I was in a juried show I would notified galleries (which had simular work as mine) that I was part of a juried show and let them know that if they where interested they could see my work there.  It's easy now with the internet to view a gallerie's group of artists. 

Second, you should do your own shows.  I did this in 4 different ways.  a.)  Join a small art organization that allows their artist to at sometime have there own show  b.) Rental gallery that, for a fee, lets you have the space for a month or.... c.) Many cities have a "Artwalk" or "Open Studio event.  You can somehow get involved with these.  d.)  Coffee houses!!! They love having art up on their walls. If you appear active or hot galleries will want to be apart of this.

Third, start a mailing list and use it.  Let anyone interested know when you are having a show.  This includes Galleries. 

Fourth, if you have a website, use it to submit to galleries.  Some don't like it, but most like not having to return slides.  (I really hate getting slides done)

Learn art law... Now don't be frightened. Laws between a gallery and a artist are easy.  You'll have the upper hand since most smaller galleries don't have a clue, so if you run into trouble you have the law to back you up.

Be Fair to your gallery.  Gallery Prices should be the same as what you sell your artwork for.  Never undercut.
If your gallery works hard for you, you work hard for your gallery.

Well, I hope I haven't overwelmed you.  I have tons more advice, so if you want more let me know.

I love this painting!  I think the figures you have and the open space is perfect.  What is your medium?

This painting is in oil.  I also work in watercolor and embroidery.  Each medium changes the mood of the piece.  My watercolors are more comical, Oil paintings are darker, and embroidery is more structured.
