I've begun making a website using at www.artbykenb.com using Intuit.com's website as my host.
I'm trying to build a "store" using PayPal to describe my products but it's a tedious process to say the least. Intuit offers some "store front" addons that are looking better and better to me.
The main drawback to adding a "store" is my budget (or lack of). Right now I'm using their "Business" website free for 30 days then for $19.99 a month. Adding a Basic store with a limit of 100 products costs another $9.99 a month. So I would be paying $30.00 a moth instead of $20.00 a moth.
$360.00 a year or $240.00? I suppose that I should try it for six months then take a look at it then. If I could sell three or four paintings a year I could pay for a year's online costs and have some spending money.
If it's not one thing, it's another isn't it?

This painting was one of five that I entered in the Rogers (AR) Art Guilds 2011 Art Show & Sale.
This year we had only 44 paintings entered almost half the number entered last year.
This was a really fun painting, especially adding the snow falling! It was daunting to make the snow as it involved "splattering" my painting with really thinned blueish grey paint. I learned of a technique on the Art Instruction blog. A person asked how to make "falling snow" in a painting. Mike Callahan gave the answer that helped me most plus he included links to three of his paintings as examples. Mikes website is http://www.mikecallahanart.com/
