I have mine on society6. You only get a percentage of what they sell your art on their products for (very, very little), but you can keep your originals.

The ideas above seem like a good list to look into. Selling originals is not gong to be easy unless you find your audience/ buyers. I would recommend art fairs IRL instead.

Not enough coffe yet this morning, I see this is an Old thread. Oh well...

try local art fairs, if they attract the right type of people(people with money)you should have no trouble selling you art.stay away from country craft fairs ,make sure its a real art show that can attract real art lovers and collectors, i.e. people who arent afraid to spend over $100 for a painting or drawing.some people go to art shows thinking its a garage sale, they'll buy your stuff but for pennies on the dollar.stay away from any type of show that attracts that type of person.

Make an art porfolio via a website with previews. There are art galleries online as well. I do not know what kind of work you make but you should be selling paintings for around $2000 to $5000. See those book covers on books. They have taxes and cost that much to make. However without tax it is less. $150 is a drop in the bucket an din no way at all. You should be making physical works that look complete meant for wall hangings.

artyah.com (0.10 per listing)

ebluejay.com (free)

ecrater (free)

cafepress, curioos, society6, redbubble, fine art america, prints your image on all types of products called POD, print-on-demand. Great sites to be on, but you DO need to know how to upload large images that have correct resolution so that when the products are printed the print will be clear and not blurry or have jagged outlines called pixelation. If you know how or will learn how to process/edit your images properly, you'd enjoy uploading them and immediately seeing them displayed on all of these different products. It's a real rush and so exciting, but as others have said, competition now is very fierce. Everyone and their brother is trying to make extra money or earn a living selling their creative skills. It can take a long time to start making sales. If you stick with it, and develop your products by tweaking, altering and adapting to what customers are seeking, you can be successful.

Good luck to you!
