  1. In question #1 you left out a very important option>>>
    Develop more gallery relationships.
    So I didn’t vote on question #1 bc none of the other responses applied.

  2. Pink Buddha says:

    Multiple mediums including performance and installation. Pink Buddha thinks the poll is flawed because it does not address these.

  3. Ann Wardley says:

    Youtube works very well I just sold a painting to Saudi Arabia
    I’m in Canada Ann

  4. Interesting pol and more interesting to see the percentage responses in each catagory. I look forward to the emails from Art Business Institute as you are one of the relevant sites for artists.

  5. I find your information very helpful and look forward to these postings.

  6. I need an easy to maintain bookeeping system and art tracking system. I also need a logical way to archive my painting digital files so I have Hi resolution 300, DPI. 72 DPI. photoshop, jpgs, pdf’s and small files for web and e-mail for each painting. the if i crop a painting to fit a specific thing I also need that. I need a record of the name, size medium and if it is available for licensing . It seems ocverwhelming to set this all up and I keep getting files stored all over my computer.

  7. Diane Townsley says:

    For the question on priorities for building my craft business, I wanted to click all of them, but chose developing and improving my body of work because I feel it’s the first step. I’m part way there, but it’s not fully conceptualized, and I want lines for both retail and wholesale in a wider variety of price ranges.

  8. Having gallery or consultant reps will be great, as for now, all of my work has been commission.
