new hashtags Instagram

Outline of a hashtag experiment. What could be more exciting, eh? Over on Instagram I use a standard set of hashtags:

#contemporaryart #contemporaryportraitpainting #contemporarypainting
#artistoninstagram #artoninstagram #JeanSmith #MeccaNormal #paintingsforsale #contemporaryportrait #artwork #artist #onlineart #onlineartgallery #onlineartsales #painting #kunst #portraitpainting #artforsale

I’m adding new hashtags that focus more on art by women. I’m going back and adding these to portraits with 50 likes that are still available.

#curator #womenartists #feministart #womenpainters #artforsalebyartist
#womenwhopaint #femaleartists #paintingsofwomen #50likes

I was going to make this a private file, a place to record which portraits I added new hashtags to so I could check back and see if it made any impact in terms of connecting with people. To a certain extent, I like to show what I’m doing, so I’ve made it public so you can see what I’m up to (noting that isn’t a very revealing statement). Other than posting paintings regularly on FaceBook, I don’t get many sales from this website or Instagram. Not sure why. I’m not paying for ads anywhere or getting professional help, so that’s a factor. I’m going to start making more videos. I tend to go long and cover too much, so the goal is to address one topic at a time and keep them short. I wish myself luck with that!

“The Hat” series began on paper (early 2016) and then moved onto canvas panel. I’ve stuck with the panels since the summer of 2016, but this morning I was checking out the paintings of an artist I like (after he liked one of my paintings on Instagram !) and the way he works with oil on aluminum – all squishy and slithery – made me want to go back to a smooth surface. I ‘primed’ the paper here with gel medium.
