Jumpstart Your Art: How to Begin Selling Your Artwork and Other Tidbits

I am excited that I just finished publishing my second book. My first book was a hands-on exercises kind of book, and the one I just published is an art marketing type of book. I think “Jumpstart Your Art” is the perfect sequel to my first book, “Paint Naturally: Internally Focused Abstract Art Workshop.”

“Jumpstart Your Art” discusses everything you need to know and have in place before you start selling your artwork. In this book, I cover nine P’s of marketing, including product, price, place, promotion, process, positioning, people, packaging, and physical evidence. Also included are artist interviews, artist tips and resources, a few painting exercises, and tips on how to make your art “yours.”

New! Fine Art Coloring Book

I realized today that I never created a blog post about my coloring book that I published in March! So I am writing about it now. It contains 50 coloring pages — still life, portraits, and abstracts, all created by converting my original paintings to black and white.

Art, even just coloring, is so relaxing, especially during times like today. This has become such a stressful world to live in and so many things are unknown. which can produce anxiety. Coloring and other art forms has been proven to be beneficial to your mental health.

There is no other book like this one because all the coloring pages are black and white reproductions of my one of a kind original paintings.

Learn to Paint!

One of the major milestones in my painting career was when I published a book last year. I am pleased with how it has been received by both strangers and family/friends, which is encouraging me to write a second book. I have not nailed down the exact focus of my next book yet, but I have several ideas percolating in my head.

Painting featured on the front of “Paint Naturally”

“Paint Naturally” is geared for beginning (no experience necessary) acrylic painters. Internally focused painting relies on intuition and emotion, in which you paint your feelings, instead of being influenced externally from your environment. It’s a deep connection between your body, mind, and spirit. You then translate that onto the paper, canvas, or other surface. “Paint Naturally” contains eight hands-on exercises which guide you step-by-step in the creation of paintings — intuitive paintings of mine. The exercises are meant to be a jump start in creating your own unique paintings and style, guided by your intuition. Learn color mixing basics, composition techniques, and basic ways to use acrylic paint. Tips for creating abstract work is included, as well as a 30-day creative prompts challenge to help your creative juices flow.

Book: #1 New Release

I am a visual artist living in Southwestern Indiana who publishes art related blog posts regularly. Sign up to receive updates from my blog at the bottom of this page.

I have wanted to write a book since I was in my early 20s. I always thought I would write a book about living with a mental health issue. Instead, I wrote a book about art — a beginner acrylic painting abstract art book.

My book is helping people, but in a different way. I am not an art therapist, but I do find art to be therapeutic and I enjoy sharing my love of art with others for that reason.  Painting is one of my favorite wellness tools.

You can purchase my book from Amazon in both Kindle and paperback versions. Right now my book is the #1 New Release in the “Craft and Hobby Painting” category. In the book you will find eight step-by-step paintings you can follow or use as inspiration. I also discuss supplies, share a painting challenge, and share abstract art tips.

I had so much fun documenting my work for this book and creating the written sections too. I’m looking forward to begin working on my second book and I’m tossing around a couple ideas in my head.

Cheers!
Lori
