Over the years I have sold my art online. Initially I tried via some early online artist sites and whilst I had many views and comments nothing has ever sold.
I was most successful when I had my own web site, although that was early in the internet days when getting a front page position on Google was much easier. Since then I have been using Etsy to sell art materials successfully but none of my jewelry has ever sold online, only face to face.
Today Saatchi Art is available to many artists although it is not something I have tried yet. So I decided to browse to see what was selling on Saatchi and to my surprise plenty of the less than $500 category of miniatures featured.
So here is a snapshot of what was selling on Saatchi one day last week.
