Are you talking about print sale? all your works have no key words and not offered for print sale. Even if you only want to sell orginal you still need to add descriptions on eachworks, such as size, medium.

 

I just looked at one that is offered in print and has keywords added to it in her Scottish Scenery Gallery. I also see originals that are offered without print.

Wish I had answers for you Dawn. How long does your endurance meter run? I just had a purchase at the other place that surprised me... yesterday. Had an image a couple of weeks ago here. Been spending lots more time revamping keywords.... culling images that I no longer want... finishing images that were not really ready to go... and practicing new techniques.

The final results will speak for themselves.

too small too blurry up close, it won't print here, most can see it's soft as a thumb. descriptions help. and you have to advertise, you can't just let it sit.

Sell Art Online
also way too small, and looks dark.


sunsets are a dime a dozen here, so they may never sell even if super awesome.

Photography Prints
this one has really no keywords and no description. people like to connect using something that describes what they are looking at. more so google loves words.

Sell Art Online
this is nice, it looks sellable, however not many keywords. no description, doesn't look like you pushed on social media, but it looks printable.

i think a part of what you should do is to group things up by subject and not by style. so people can go right to the faces, sunsets, etc. you need larger pictures overall, more words everywhere, and you have advertise, can't stress it enough.

Art Prints
here's another out of focus one. i can see the paper ok, but the lines look blurry. a scanner is your friend when it comes to stuff like this.
