I create original oil paintings in landscape art, beach art, ocean art, golf course art and other.
I always enjoyed painting when I was younger, and I took a few art classes in college, but I choose a career in business and accounting. I worked 40 years in that field and became a CFO. I always had painting on my mind, but I was too busy with my career and raising 2 girls. I finally retired in 2017 and began taking more painting classes. I honed my painting skills and have a large inventory of paintings to sell. I decided to use my business experience to create a website to sell my art.
The started building my website, but realized my first step was to inventory my artwork. I created a spreadsheet and created a numbering system, category, names, size, pricing, etc.
Then I began photographing my works and loading them into the website.
The next step is marketing. I created a marketing and I'm about to implement it. More to come on my next blog. I'll let you know how I progress and how much time it takes.
Thanks for reading and joining me in this process. I hope it helps you to advance your online art store. Take the plunge with me.
