This is a big day for me, as I just sold my first 3 prints through this website! (Under the Devilís Club, Forget-me-not, and the Fiddlehead Forest) Iíve sold original paintings and I've received commissions, but not prints. For one thing, I only added "prints available" to my Purchase page about a week ago (I still havenít added any size or price information yet).
I've had several people whoíve been to my shows, sign up for prints for once they became available. I've had the prints from "Rain Country" finished for probably a year now, but I just couldn't decide how to number them, or how much to charge etc. so I just sat on them and did nothing. (Donít worry Marja-Leena, I explained the difference between photographic reproduction prints like Giclees and original fine art prints).
Anyway, a woman from Louisiana bought them using PayPal and the transaction went very smoothly. Iím going to put them in the mail tomorrow morning. Having a website is *a lot* or work, but all the work I put into this site is starting to pay off. Every time I add a new feature it seems like I make better sales. I know the site has a loooooooooong way to go, but itís getting there.
