Reaching for Higher Ground: My New Etsy Shop

Today is another day, and as I watch the sunset from my small apartment in Taiwan, I think, life couldn't be better.  Really, I have an abundant life and am grateful for all the good things that come my way.  

I have to say that my new Etsy account has been a blessing.  It is unbelievable of what they are doing at their site.  I felt that their services are so much better and unique than Ebay.  Although I like the idea of customers basically setting their own prices by way of an auction, I believe you can still do the same on any site.  

How?  That's easy!

Have you heard of "Best Offer" (an Ebay term).  That is certainly a great bargaining tool that many would-be buyers do not use very often.  Believe me, you should learn to make an offer, especially to artists that represent themselves like me.

On my Facebook site KenLawArtist , I offer any fans or any 
Facebook user a chance to make an offer on any of my "original" paintings.  Every second Tuesday of each month I do an auction on Facebook.  All the rules are right here.

I think you should get art that is affordable, especially if you buy directly from the artist.  It makes perfect sense to me.  Imagine having a real live painting~no print or copy inside your own house. Why should it cost you as much as it would if you bought a painting from a gallery?  It shouldn't.  There is no middle-man!

In a week or two, I will be discounting several of my earlier paintings.  If you like to know when, get on my newsletter.

Finally, I am starting to get caught up a bit.  I have several new paper and canvas paintings that you can look at on Etsy. Remember I am always open to best offers.  I'm an artist, but I do need to sell paintings so I can feed my wife.

Here are some of my newest works!
