A Thread To Sell Art

Not meaning to be rude or anything, but people are always coming up with all kinds of threads, which as along as Abbie don't care, I certainly don't.

I don't know if people think they are actually worthwhile for marketing or just doing them for fun.

But I wonder why no one ever comes up with a thread that actually encourages people to promote things OUTSIDE of FAA where they may be seen by potential buyers.

FAA encourages all members to like, favorite, vote and share links of artists that we like on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, G+ and one or two more SM platforms.

Why not a thread where a person posts a link to an image they want to promote and everyone shares it on as many of the above mentioned SM platforms as possible? Or better yet in a couple of groups that you belong to where the image would be acceptable.

Just a thought.

Of course, if people are just doing these threads for the fun of it, there is certainly nothing wrong with that.

We can do it here or someone can start another thread.

Who wants to start? Someone post a link (NOT AN IMAGE) to an image and everyone that likes the image can share it as they see fit. This has to be on the honor system. You can't just post a link of your own image and not share the images of others.

Who wants to be first?

I just want to mention one other thing.

I know there are people here that are dead against any kind of promoting of other peoples artwork.

We know that. If you don't want to play please just don't play.

Thank you.

I am going to start this off by with a tribute to Harold Shull who recently passed.

I am assuming that the proceeds of his FAA gallery are going to his family and I think we can all agree that he was one of the great all-time members of FAA with an incredible body of work.

Here is his image Portland Head Lighthouse. Please join me and share this wonderful image with your friends or in your Facebook groups or a Tweet.

Who cares?

They are discussions!

If people want to discuss they will, if they don't..... the thread will drop out of sight.

What I really don't understand is that something is considered someone's thread and said person needs to keep sticking his or her oar in.

Discussions.

No right, no wrong; let's just talk about it.... and go home thinking: who cares.

Floyd,

This sort of chain is interesting to me.It is an extra and more productive way of using the forum.

Everyone naturally wants to put their best foot forward. It is easy to share these works.

I have so many SM outlets now that the ones I want to keep to myself I can. While I have 17k or more followers where I can share other folks things and not have any worries. Then there are FB groups where I can further share things for people.

RE:... "Roger, thank you for playing and posting one of Hal's images.

The problem I have, and the reason I don't do as well on the internet as I possibly could...is simply:


I can't in good conscience promote someone's work because they want me to

Conversely

I don't expect anyone else to promote my work, because I ask them to.,


The reason I promoted Hal Shull"s art on Facebook, primarily is because, to me, his work is deliciously phenomenal... Along with the facts that he had never asked to do it and you suggested that I do

Floyd, I think this was a great idea! I have always felt that promoting others adds interest to my pages and helps attract views. Plus the reap what you sow factor can't hurt either...

High in the Wallowa Mountains of Oregon, a clear alpine lake is still and silent, its surface reflecting the sky and landscape around it. It is peaceful and quiet in this remote wilderness -- here one can think and reflect, and be in a state of serene tranquility.

Hi Archana and welcome aboard!

The idea here is to share the image that people post to something outside of FAA or Pixels. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram or whatever Social Media you use.

For a new person, they should go up at least three different artist's posts and share their images and then post one of their own to share.

Make sure at least one other artist post before you post again and make sure you share all of the artist's images that posted since your last post.

I notice you do not allow people to share your images to Twitter of Facebook. That is going to make it difficult for people to share your images.

Thank you for joining us!

I love your work I hope you keep adding to your account.

All That's Left Western Wagon by Barbara Snyder

What are the top attractions to visit in Kernville?
The top attractions to visit in Kernville are:
The Kern Valley Museum
Riverside Park
Brush Creek
Whiskey Flat Trail
Dry Meadow Creek

The Kern River in Kern County, California is a very popular vacation spot during the summer months. The river offers up great fishing and a lot of shallow pools during the dryer season for swimming, inner-tubing, and just drifting down the river on the current.

In the rainy season or during the early thaw, the river runs wild and it is a very popular place for white water rafting for the thrill-seekers.

Pigeon With A Private Bath by Floyd Snyder

This pigeon had found himself a private bath to cool off in and he needs it. It was over 110 degrees in Indio, California the day I took this picture. I was very tempted to go commando and dive in myself.

This is just outside the famous Jackalope Ranch and Restaurant located in Indio California.

Jackalope Ranch is a finely-crafted lodge sitting on 6.5 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens that includes a running stream and a number of waterfalls. It is part of the Kaiser Family of Restaurants in the Palm Springs area.

Waves crash against the rocks on the Oregon Coast in the USA. High tide or low tide, walking along the seaside beaches and rocks is a journey of adventure -- when the surf is up the water and waves make glorious splashes; when they are down, they reveal tide pools and crevices that are perfect for coastal exploration. Coastline, original oil painting and art print by Steve Henderson.

The Flute Player Kokopelli by Barbara Snyder

Kokopelli is a fertility deity, usually depicted as a humpbacked flute player (often with feathers or antenna-like protrusions on his head), who has been venerated by some Native American cultures in the Southwestern United States. Like most fertility deities, Kokopelli presides over both childbirth and agriculture. He is also a trickster god and represents the spirit of music.

As the light wanes, it casts its golden glow over the landscape, drawing out colors in both light and shadow. How peaceful and quiet it feels here, how far away from the noise of "modern" society.

The Way Home by Larry Dyke ~ "My eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me; He who walks in a blameless way is the one who will minister to me.” PSALMS 101:6 Everyone knows the anticipation of being home and safe following a long journey. It is that comfortable feeling of truly being at peace that Larry Dyke determined to portray. Life can sweep us along, or we may wonder a variety of roads that take us in countless directions, but we always know there is a path that will lead us home. In this peaceful, soothing painting, our attention is directed to the safe and cozy embrace of an earthly home while the church spire in the distance reminds us of our heavenly home that lies just around the bend, beyond the everyday things of life. Those who live faithfully and blamelessly are promised that eternal dwelling place. "For in the day of trouble He will keep me safe in His dwelling; He will hide me in the shelter of His tabernacle and set me high upon a rock.” PSALM 27:4-6

Funky Dodge Wine Truck by Floyd Snyder



This old truck sits just across the road from the old Edna Creamery, in the township of Old Edna. It is located at 1655 Price Canyon Road about ten miles outside of the city of San Luis Obispo, in San Luis Obispo Country on the Central Coast of Californa.

The Township of Edan is now almost entirely owned by Nancy and Craig Stoller of Bakersfield owners of Sextant Wines. They have converted the main building into a tasting room and deli. The property also has three vacations homes for rent and they also cater to special events and parties.

“We couldn’t be more excited and grateful to be the owners of such a unique property in Edna,” Craig Stoller said in a news release. “We fell in love with the property when we purchased the adjacent vineyard in 2007, so to operate the entire town seemed like the natural next step.”

The two lane road runs between Monterey California to the famous art town of Carmel By The Sea. Carmel was also made even more famous when Clint Eastwood served as it mayor.

The Lone Cypress is located about half way between the two tourist cites and is not all that far from one of the most famous golf course in the world, Pebble Beach.

So I edited this Austin of England car into a photo I took of the Oark Cafe / General Store and turned it into a digital painting with texture. It is the oldest, continuous-operation store in Arkansas and is listed in the Arkansas Register of Historic Places.
