I just love your video and now I feel this was what which I was looking for . Your new subscriber from all the way Pakistan ❤️
I love this video. I’m also an artist I paint, write poems, photography and dance — and all I want to do with my life is be able to earn a living from those things instead of working some dead end job for shit pay that I have zero passion for. People have asked about buying my images my photography but I have zero clue how to get it to them. I’m really really bad with technology tried setting up one of these online stores only for it to end up being a total waste of my entire day. I keep wanting to give up because I’ve been trying for years to make some kind of a living from this and I’m getting nowhere but there is a small part of me that just won’t let me give it up. I work third shift so my mind is in the fog half the day most days and it’s really hard to even think straight about business are trying to learn something new but I’m going to take your advice and try to schedule out my time better

U didn’t look 37 here, looked younger !
or your physically not able to draw and paint all those required hours to make a living out of own art. it's not always because it doesn't matter enough to someone if they don't make time for it.

Very practical wisdom and guidance. Thank you! 🤗
Tim Bettcher (4 months ago)
you have to have experience in every medium to make it work cause you will have clients that some want their subject in oil or watercolor and some might want just black and white like charcoal or graphite some might even like pastels,colored pencils,etc......my point is you have to be very flexible in mediums,subjects,and styles like plein air,still life,portraits,abstract,etc.....

I am an artist and I know what is beautiful. You have a face so classically beautiful it makes me yearn to put brush to canvas or pencil to paper. You inspire simply with your radiance. Hopefully I will capture such allure and be able to translate it with my medium, one can hope no?

I'm a passionate emotional mess I would probably be a great artist but I don't have the courage like you. Too many what ifs I guess they're just excuses huh? If I do take the leap it will be because of you. Thank you

Your ideas are very good,the problem for me from a small market like Ireland is that I.need to export to a large market like the US,and since I paint oil on canvas,shipping costs would be crazy,but your ideas are really great,like dont waste time with TV,and use social media a friend uses facebook which works really well for him thanks again

I want to make a living from my art as well and am struggling to do so. I am 27 years old and I guess I havent figured out what first step to make. When I saw your video though, it really helped me push myself and believe in myself and an artist and also believe that I CAN make a living with my art. If you would like to see my work you can follow me on Instagram at jr_aguayo_01 And also on my facebook at Rogelio Aguayo. Please check out my stuff and I will be glad to do the same. We artists have to support each other.

More realistic doesn't mean better. I'm a abstract artist who is starting to make a living off abstract artwork. My art is nowhere near realistic. And people still compliment me on how impressive my work is. And I'm glad to have made it this far.

As a person who makes art, artist like her sure do give a lot of valuable advice. And I need to make a point to take this new found wisdom to the bank. As for the "don't read" part, I have to make an exception because my mind needs to be nourished with knowledge and I don't want to be enslaved by ignorance.

searching on YouTube "how to sell my artwork" come up with this video....watched..liked.. subscribed..and I will follow you.. thanks a lot.. because these small helps are huge for me now..I want to make my living out of it.. because I found myself in painting..and only I know that..and just need some mental support and help from anywhere I can get..thank you so much..
Treck Dimondback (8 months ago)
Number 5, one great incentive for me NOT to sell my art. Time is on my side. I will spend a couple months on a piece but it's okay cause it's at my leisure. Work on it here and there, let it sit for a while, come back to it because I'm feeling the stuff or I'M TIRED OF LOOKING AT IT NOT GETTING DONE! I make no promises so I feel no pressure. Seems to me the end result is sooo much more satisfying. The longer you slow cook the ribs, the better they taste.

I did that with my planner too, even my laundry I put "send laundry to wash" "take laundry out to dry". I find that if I were to write down "make teaching material" I don't finish as much as I need to. But if I were to set a goal say "finish color wheel" then I get so much more done. I can't imagine when you started selling art without the social media time...

What would you say you feel are the most important basic elements that you need to know very well to be really great at art? Like as far as, dimension/shading/proportion & all of those kind of things. What are the utmost fundamental things that are super significant in order to be able to build upon them. I'm not articulating it very well. But. Like the core skills/techniques that are crucial to being good & growing better? Basic things you really need to master in order to continue working towards always getting better at it? I'm trying to apply this to both traditional AND digital art. Cause I'm pretty good at traditional, but was self-taught, & have always wondered what kind of basic specifics I might have been taught, or that I should know & should still learn?
shannon bryant (9 months ago)
I keep seeing people asking your secret for looking younger than you are, I'm almost 36, I always get carded & people always say the same thing to me that I look like a teenager & ask for my "secret" lol, & for me at least, I'm only HALF joking when I say "almost never being in the sun or outside at all the past two decades" (plus genes, of course.) LOL!! (The not ever in the sun is mostly cause I've had chronic health issues since I was 7 unfortunately, that flare up & down periodically, & when you're either in the hospital or recovering at home lots of the time, you tend to not be exposed to the sun & all those l other toxins & whatnot. But you also become deficient in the Vitamin D the sun gives us for free, & don't get to enjoy the sun & nature as much as you'd like. Plus, in Southern California, some of the days are so hot, I don't WANT to be out in the sun, regardless of if I'm having a good or bad period health-wise. I don't know why I over-shared all of that, but, I guess I did. :) <3

I agree with most of what You said, few things I could debate but it boils down to "finding your balance", "commitment" and "determination". It's that unique kind of "drive" that an artist can have and it's an amazing feeling. On the other note... as honest as I can be: The moment You mentioned Your age my jaw physically dropped. I have not had that happen to me in years. If You ever hear someone say: "women age like a fine wine" please raise your hand and say "yeah, me".
Shawntay Crawford (10 months ago)
Hey!! I wanna take your advice to heart and get my ass moving! 😅 but, what would you say is good quality paint etc. And can you do art classes!!!! Like you said, OMG I can't afford art classes. Mom of two kids here! 😉
