So, my wife and I sold 10 paintings at the Cedar Ranch Show. I have been taking an online course from Rusty Jones, and my wife has been auditing the class. We did a lot of 5×7 demos, I did several 8×10’s and we sold 10 pieces including a large piece I did on my own a year ago called the Tree in Monterey. This is the first successful show since the bain of Covid.
I am going to be featured in this Saturday’s special edition of the prestigious Informed Collector newsletter.
The upcoming edition is our weekly “New FASO Artist Members.” This newsletter goes to approximately 48,000 subscribers and your section will include buttons for people to receive new artwork alerts every time you post new artwork to your FASO website. This is an easy way for collectors to follow your progress and for you to get “automatic” marketing every time you post new artwork to your FASO website.
To sign up to receive Informed Collector so you can see my feature article, please go here.
My New Website on FASO
Jefferis Peterson Fine Art to see a preview of my work.
The Art of Jefferis
After the quiet year during the pandemic, my work is starting to display and sell again.
I have joined Fine Art Studio Online (FASO) and have another website: http://www.jefferisartstudio.com
But Some good news, The Cardoon has found new home and I’m so thankful. It is a fun painting done in Acrylic of flowering plant closely related to the artichoke.
I have not painted in over a month. Sometimes that happens because of vacations, visiting family away from home. But now that I’m back, I’m having a bit of a motivational problem. I’ve sold 1 medium painting and several small ones over the last 6 months, but my inventory is stacking up and I’m finding that even though I like what I do, I’m not selling as much as I’d like to, and it gets discouraging, especially when I start running out of room in my studio to store them. I am just not feeling very inspired.
Do you ever get that way?
I am in a gallery called Art on 12 (https://arton12.com) and I get a lot of compliments on my work, but 100 times more admirers than buyers. People like to look, but few are actually in the market for art, and even fewer have, or are willing to spend, the money for fine art.
The art world is fickle. People’s tastes change. What is popular is today may not be tomorrow. I’m noticing that brash colors and abstracts are selling a lot more than impressionistic landscapes. I may be out of touch or living in the wrong era.
