Re: I am looking for an artist adviser to define suitable galleries for my paintings, can you help?

Wow, first it would seem someone has to decide your work is good enough to get into galleries. Walk in a local gallery and show them your work. If they decide to carry you great. Then see how your sales go. If you actuately get sales and can establish a record then you can consider someone to market...

Re: art pricing

Zeuslight, pricing is what the market bears. A gallery, if you can get one to display your work will price it for you based on what they think will sell.

Re: Hi, I have been stepping up the quality of my art and I need constructive opinions on my art

Have you ever taken any lessons. Might be worth your while. The rawness of your work might become more sophisticated. The best thing in art is when you enjoy it. Glad you are having fun. When you sell art it is normally a "fair price" as it is what the market will bear. Grandaddyearl

Re: Please please please comments and feedback sort !!!

Love your work. Especially your sketches. Originals have still got to be in the forefront of art. As I work totally in pen and pencil (not computers) I appreciate your talent and with a Scotsman background the clan/crest theme you specialize in was especially appreciated. Grandaddyearl
