:bigwelcome: to the site Leana, great to have you here.

Also looking forward to hearing your insights into the marketing of your art. I am gearing up to do a series on art marketing, so I may just be knocking on your Skype door for an interview soon  :whistle:

Nolan, I also have my paintings on Southafricanartists.com.  Take a look at this awesome site as it is an internet gallery for all artists famous and unfamous for various art including drawing, photography etc.   I have sold a few paintings here.  I set my price then they mark it up and sell to the world, that way both parties win.   Maybe it is something to add to your site!!  Can give you more info if you are interested.  You may know about this site already.   :)

Hi Leanna, you can go to the "Watch paintbasket TV" on top of the page and then request a reminder (on left of page) to be sent to you.  This is very worthwhile and exciting. :yippee: :yippee:
