When I recently asked my FaceBook friends how they think I should proceed with selling paintings they suggested gallery shows, raising prices (from $100 USD) and painting larger (than 11 x 14″). The thing is, the FaceBook model works and I don’t want to interrupt my daily routine: paint, photograph, post, promote, package and ship. Yet, based on enthusiasm and compliments, I think more people would buy my work if they had a chance to see it.

I’m certainly not complaining though! To my utter amazement, I’ve sold over 600 paintings on FaceBook in the past three years. November 2018 was almost a record at 30 paintings sold!

It’s a case of “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” but, I also have over 250 paintings in stock, so I do consider various ideas, including shows. I sometimes forget that while I see the paintings in the context of a room (my studio) others only see them with a close crop online. So here are a few of my favorite ‘beyond the screen’ photos!

Several of my all time favorite paintings are still available.

Why are some of my all-time favorite paintings still available? I figure it’s because of when I originally posted them on my regular FaceBook page where 99% of purchases happen. Sales slow at the end and beginning of the month and during major distractions good and bad. Here are a handful of my pre-September favorites.

Collectors tip: I post first on FaceBook where they sometimes sell within the first five minutes which slows me down from posting them here, on the monthly page. I tend to put them on Instagram last, two or three at a time.
