Learn to paint in Acrylic paints - Step by Step
This is a painting I did. I have many more in my online art gallery. Here is the link to my online art gallery. I hope you find a treasure.
I hope you all enjoy my discussion I posted.. feel free to comment on what you think of my painting too :)
So, forgive me if I am blunt, but what discussion are you referring to? You joined Karen's site seven hours ago and the first post I see is little more than a link to your commercial etsy store.
Are you looking to share the art and fun of painting with us, or are you merely seeking wider exposure for your store?
I asked Karen if it would be okay. I am using this site to learn new ways to paint and get better. I love painting and it is a huge passion of mine. And besides the link I did post the pic to see what others thought. It is my page right? And I got permission.. Anyways sorry the post bothered you... I'm new and really just all want to get along..
Have a nice day
Britt - Karen's site has been and continues to be a place where artists can share and learn without being pestered to buy one thing or another at every turn; a rarity on the internet. Your initial post did bother me because it appeared to be little more than a link to your Etsy site. A number of the members here sell their paintings, but are discrete about promoting their work when posting. That is where I was coming from in my original post. I would have been much more accepting of a link to your Etsy store if it were on your personal page rather than within a discussion.
My apologies for misjudging your motives. I trust we can wipe this canvas clean and start afresh?
Thank you for your comments Charles. I was afraid some might be offended and I didn't want that.
My thinking was that posting an Etsy or other link would be a good way for people to see what others are doing in terms of selling their art. Prices they are using, what is selling, etc.
Also away to see a larger body of their work if interested.
I think what I will do is start a new discussion Category where people can post their links...
Hope that makes sense :)
My intentions honestly was just good. Thought I could even get a critique on my gallery because it is the first one I have ever done. Still figuring how to take good photos and price right and that is a big part of selling art that I wanted help with.
I forgive you and I would love to wipe the canvas clean! :)
Nice to meet you!
Very nice work Britt!
