Daily Paintworks venture


Midnight Fire

6" x 6", acrylic on canvas


One of my new ventures in 2012 is opening a new online shoppe at Daily Paintworks. I wanted an online opportunity to offer some of my artwork for purchase and Etsy just wasn't cutting it. After doing a little research, I decided to go with Daily Paintworks.

Daily Paintworks features the works of painters only. While the site was originally launched to feature the work of painters that develop a studio practice of finishing a daily painting, the site has now expanded to include all painters working in various mediums, from oil to acrylic to watercolor and more. Each painter has their own gallery page where they feature their work and can offer paintings for purchase via a set price or auction. 

What sold me on the site was the incredible zoom feature--if you move the mouse over the image of the painting, the highlighted section is magnified and shows off the color and texture of the piece. It is amazing! Daily Paintworks is the only site I've seen with this feature and it really shows off the art. I also think it is a relatively simple process to upload your images and listings.

So I have listed some paintings, including the two I've pictured here. I am iniatially listing some paintings for auction with a relatively low starting bid to hopefully draw some interest to my page. I am very excited to say I have already sold a couple of paintings! (Hurry! These two auctions end tomorrow and the paintings are still available for the starting bid of $25/each.)  

I don't think any artist truly loves the selling/marketing part of being an artist. I feel awkward "promoting" myself, but it is a necessary evil! And this girl needs to buy some paint! 

So this is my little promo to give you a heads up on where you can view some of my work that is available for purchase. You can go directly to my Daily Paintworks gallery by clicking on the shop link at the top of this page. (Of course, always feel free to inquire about any artwork you see on this site). You can also "follow" me at my Artist Facebook page-- updates on my Daily Paintworks listings.

And thank you, for "listening" to my little self-marketing pitch!

Risa these are wonderful. And thanks for giving a heads up about the Daily Paintworks. The site is clean and easy to navigate. I'll have to look into this.
