hi, new here and just thought I would say howdy to all. I am a dabbler in art but would love to find a person to make it real for me as I have in my hands a gift for making my art but as for me being able to sell my art I am not a salesman. :rolleyes: oh the pic on my profile is a life size beaver I did for a friend. what do ya think???it is sandstone from the local area. :cool:
Hello sunpowered. That's really a beaver. We have them in our area too. It must have been a lot of work to carve.
It seems to me that you do have the skills to market. You found this site, took a reasonably good picture of the sculputre and figured out how to post it. Since you've taken the initative to introduce yourself to peers, it's not such a leap to approach others.
All of us wish we had someone to do our selling for us, but alas, most of us must be multi taskers. If you find a magic fairy, please pass on some insights. I'd love to have her (or his) contact info.
Welcome to the group.

hello and nice to meet you, oh did I forget to say I never leave my property as I am a shut in. been one for over ten years have not left the property for over 10 months this time so makes it hard to get .. out there and sell or do the good shows, I have been invited to many of the top of the line shows but I can not attend myself.

Sunpowered - I agree with JAZ that you have exhibited marketing skill by finding this site and introducing yourself.
The fact that you have been invited to shows can be a good thing or a bad one. Many of these invitations may be legitimate, but if you look through earlier posts scattered here, you also will find that people use the Internet either genuinely to “scam” sculptors, or simply to offer them exhibit opportunities that will benefit the exhibit managers while leaving the sculptor with bills and no financial return. Unfortunately, offers from persons you don’t know must be looked at with skepticism.
Don’t stop looking to market your work, and let us hear more of your thoughts.

well the invites came from when I did smaller shows and when I sold in the shops back in new york, here in arizona they want me to do the carefree and fountian hills shows but I am a maker not a seller I enjoy that part I do this for what I feel from it not what I make from it. I love to feel it as I make it I think I like the part of hitting it and it becomes something else.thanks for the info though I will be known like most crazy artists only after I pass. ;)
