Okay, step back from the easel. Or the sketch pad. Or the wheel, the blowtorch, the lathe, the loom, or whatever you use to create your art. Think about the last time you told a fellow artist, "I love your stuff." What is that artist doing right now? Same thing you're doing, probably. Creating for part of the day, marketing for part, paying bills and taxes, emptying the trash, and dealing with a dozen more distractions.
Hardly anyone gets rich doing art. Probably the best that most of us can do is to make a decent living, and even that's a stretch.
So, it's build-some-good-karma time. Buy some art. Now. Show a fellow artist that you really mean it when you say, "I love your stuff." Put your money where...well, you know. It doesn't have to be a big piece, or an expensive one. Buy a print, even a greeting card. Swap for something you made. And, when another artist buys something from you, give a shout-out. Better yet, put a link to the other artist on your website or social media page.
In the spirit of sharing, snag the image "Artists Buy Art" above and put it on your website, Facebook page and/or group. It's yours. If you need a PNG of it, contact me.
