I live in an area with very wealthy people and I wonder if I can sell them my art. I love painting as a hobby and I think my work looks good. My plan is to make a website including the name of the area I live in, so people know it's local and trustworthy. Then I upload photos of some of my paintings with a description and the (high) price. Next I put flyers everywhere I can around my area. The flyer would be one of my paintings with a small website link on the bottom or so. Nothing like "visit my website now and buy paintings!". I just hope for people with lots of money who would like to have one of my paintings on their wall or so. One more idea I have is to mark some of the paintings on my website as "sold out" or "reserved" to make the impression that many are interested in buying. I just don't know if that is scammy or even illegal to do. Do you think that could work out? Any advices?
