    Hi,

    my GF creates really nice horse pinatings and photos, i'm already creating a blog for her, where we will sell canvas/paper prints of this stuff.

    How else can we monetize this?

    We got about 100 excellent artistic photos + about 50 A++ paintings/drawings/sketches

    thanks :)

    I think deviant art has a program where you can sell your art, they make prints and ship everything i believe, ofcourse they keep a certain percentage but its a good way to get started and get her work out there.

    check it out here http://help.deviantart.com/338/

    I also suggest you open an account on deviantart.com as you can sell your paintings through the built in shop. They take all from printing to shipping and payments.

    I want to post some preview pics. The aim is to keep the horses natural, not much photoshop added. The con is that the pictures are not so glamour. We have about 100 photos of this quality in 10mpx. We have about 50-100 drawings, and 10 big oil paintings.

    What do you think?

    you can make as much as you want! that's the beauty of it ;)

    the reason i posted RB is because i know many artists who actually sell their originals through RB and use it as an "exhibition" as well as selling the prints through the site too... plus many have been discovered and exhibited... or joined groups and colab on exhibitions... perfect for any artist!

    Forget selling via other sites. There's virtually no competition for your main keyword!

    Just setup a site with a photo album linked into Paypal and sell direct...

    actually im doing that, but dont want to mess with payments and shipping, so we want to point from our site to various dropshippers.
