I've seen some art posted that is marked sold and I'm curious to know if art actually sells on this website, or have they sold at art fairs, galleries...
Has anyone gotten a purchase from this site?

Most artist especially those that are new to selling should realize that there is 1000,s of competators out there trying to sell. So it is not a easy task .Mostly you have to offer something special and you have to slowly build up a following that likes your style.I have been with FM for years and have sold and do sell my work . The main advantage is I have a FM reach web that reaches out and finds me customers , that is one of the advantages I have that produces . The last time I checked I have had over 12000 hits . Check out my reach web @ http://www.johnwingo.com . I did not do any sales until I asked FM for the reach site . :D

I think it CAN and WILL work to sell, but we (artists) need to be dedicated to promoting ourselves (the not-so-fun, perhaps) part of being an independent artist.

To Johnwingo who replied above me, here--I just tried to click on you posted and it didn't work? Just thought you should know.

I was unable to reach johnwingo's site too. While I am here, can anyone tell me what "avg. rating" means?? I'm fairly new to this site (though I joined several years ago I never used the site) and am curious if that is a vote by other artists or just a ranking given by FM.

That site's not available because it expired. The average vote number is created using votes from other members here - not anything given by the site itself. Hope that helps. :)
