have you done anything about marketing yourself? usually after the first month most ask that question, and others after the first year, why wait 3?
your scans look very good, though a few look dark. i think your prices are too low. but mostly you don't have that many hits on the images. you have to push these things yourself. waiting won't work. keywording is important. because many of your things are abstract they are a tough sell, but the keywords aren't helping you either.
this one for example doesn't even have the right words - female, nudes, i guess sculpture fits. but the basics like - hand, colorful, rainbow, and any kind of bible references should be added because those are the people that may be looking for it.
flower is misspelled in the words - so that won't help you. colors aren't listed, there should be more words and a better description because google finds you.
in 3 years time you never joined any groups (which help booster you in the search as people view and comment on your work. you never entered a single contest.
i think you should rewrite your bio and instead of saying what you love, say what you make and who the inspiration was then.
but mostly it's all about marketing inside and outside.
think about adding keywords like - vintage, shoes, pearls, necklace, jewelry... Also, is that a fur, mink coat or mink stole under the pears? If so, you can also add words like - fur, mink, stole, coat, mink+stole, etc...
Just wondering - are some of your paintings "mixed media" and not all straight paintings?
I'm curious to know how many views you have over 3 years. Everything everyone said is true but my curiosity is in the fact that people like myself that plaster FAA over the web driving people in here should get everyone here at least a few looks. Plus the marketing FAA itself is doing with multiple names etc. I wasn't good at math but would be curious to know what the odds are of someone seeing my work with me doing no additional marketing? I guess we would need total hits divided into number of images or something like that. Even without knowing the numbers I don't think the odds are that great if I didn't attempt to have people look at my artist site. Especially with about 5,000 plus images added daily.
I've had one sale and credit having the right keywords. I really think keywords and descriptions are much tougher than I originally thought. We think in terms of descriptions but what we are really trying for is the search words. I wish instead of telling us the most common keywords used here, FAA would tell us the most common search words.
Dear Donna the words( mixed media) is just a FUTILE effort to get hits into my artwork. All my paintings are straight paintings over Canvas Thanks for your comment on The Flamingo thank you, thank you thank you.
If you are an oil painter then don't put mixed media. Mixed media implies digital or photography.
In fact, you might want to read on what's allowed in keywords. You can't just add words that you think people might search for if they have nothing to do with the image; it's considered spamming. Also, certain brand names and organizations can be copyrighted.
If you knew all this then my apologies, it was news to me when I joined.
