Hello Jean, Thank you for your compliments! I think renting art is a great avenue to generate income and to have more people become familiar with your work. One idea you might investigate is that many companies that rent things also have a "rent to own" program. In essence the rental payments would be applied to purchasing the product or art in your case. Thanks again for the comment and the best of luck!


Hello Neil, Great article and good idea. I have in france and belgium the project to rent art paintings for short time and exhibitions. What is your approach on this project. Sincerely
