Launching my Etsy Store!


I signed onto etsy a few years ago but never did a thing with it. Beside my pet portraits, I sold all of my "other art" on ebay and did quite well. Just didn't have time.

But I did learn two lessons from selling art on ebay:
1. You need more than a few pieces. So I've been slowly adding items to my etsy store.
2. You need positive feedback. How to get? I'm offering pieces, one at a time, way below my normal selling rate, to "prime the pump"! Hope this works! I'm using my "Muse Series"...pieces that don't have any particular other theme or tie in, just things I felt like drawing or painting and did. I think in many ways, these pieces show who I am more than anything else.

This is the first piece I'm offering for my "prime the pump" sale. Come visit my etsy store HERE and help me get the ball rolling! Robin
