I remember hearing in art school:
“Young artists just don’t have much of substance to say.”
“They haven’t found their voice.”
“The haven’t lived enough life so they don’t have anything real to reflect upon.”
His top ten rules will be included in my book, “Selling your Art without selling Art, 101 Rules.”

Please let me know what you think of the latest iteration of the cover and title above.
- Create opportunities for commissions and more sales of your artwork by asking previous clients. It’s right in front of you.
- Build a fan base for your artwork by starting with your friends and family. Ask for support from everyone you know and then ask them to spread the word about your artwork.
- Create a meaningful and valuable business and NOT an artistic career.
- Think of the buyer and stop thinking of yourself.
- Set a S.M.A.R.T.E.R. goal and accomplish it. It has been one of the most gratifying things I have ever learned.
- Take matters into your own hands and take control of your profit margin. Don’t be a victim of your own life as an artist.
- Add value to other people’s lives through your artwork in a way that is unique to you and what you care about.
- Simply start making money doing what you always wanted to do by being an artist. It is simpler than I could have imagined.
- Be sure in your decision to do something and be realistic about what to expect from yourself.
- Start from step 1, “Visioning” is the process of becoming a profitable artist and have the patience to make it to the very last step no matter what.
