Faa Milestones

Please let us know about your recent FAA milestones. If its 100 views, 100 artworks posted or 100 comments on a great work of art.

Its good to have milestones and to celebrate them knowing that all the hard work and late nights it took you to get from A to B with positive results.

I'm glad to be part of FAA and I would like to celebrate everyones growth on FAA.

My recent milestone which encouraged this post is reaching my first 10 000 views. Its been just over a year and although views don't say much becuase many can be artificial. I.E. looking at your own art. I'm still glad to celebrate this milestone on FAA. Thank you all for the comments and for this great platform. Nothing like it.

Interesting idea for a thread.

I finally hit 2500 images.

good thread!


Thanks JC, I'm glad you like the idea. It could be quite fun to see what people post.

Wow 2500, that is amazing. So many images. I'm sure it took a while to get there.

I love how the internet is constantly evolving and how we as artists are a part of it. We evolve and FAA is constantly evolving by adding more and more features etc. Its really great.

We are collectively part of a very dynamic work of human art. :) This collective social art sharing site is in itself a work of modern social art.

FAA is a milestone in human social artistic interaction.


Thanks Jessica.

I turned 50 years old today and I feel like it. Real milestone for me with all the medical problems I've had over the years.

My FAA balance is the highest it's ever been in over 5 years (as of 3 days ago). :)

Wow Sharon your collection is unstoppable. A steamroller that will squash us all. Well done. Nice work from the little I just looked at.

On July 4th I Celebrated my 6th year at Fine Art America.

Since joining in 2009, although I got a slow start and some paychecks have been quite small I have only missed a total of 8 - FAA paydays.

Very happy to still be here ( and to still be on the planet ). I have truly enjoyed my experiences and what I have learned from the many talented people here.

yeah i just sold a tote bag the other day as well, first one here anyway.

i'm closing in on the 2 million visitor mark, my views are back to where they should be, around 3000 a day.

passed 2700 uploads its not an even number now.

i guess that's it.

I like milestones, too, even if I don't know they are such until I arrive at them :)

In the past 2-3 months, I have had a number of firsts: European sale, repeat customer, review posted (that I know about), phone cover sale, and throw pillow sale. I have also had my first return and my first cancelled order (which was re-ordered a day later but differently) and it's good to have those under my belt :)

Two I'm trying to get to right now are 100,000 visitors (you can ignore your own IP address, Michael - option is at top of Visitors count page) and 1500 images. I'm at at 92,000 and 1374.

On June 17 I am proud to say I made my best work to date, Acts of War. My work had been developing.

From June 24 to July 6, I created 15 new works. I am gearing up for Christmas. With images that are not purely photography
supposedly as you get to 30 to 50 images you are getting towards a full portfolio to sell from. I began on Sept 1 last year with no images.
So I am getting somewhere. I began a new series, The Rustic Series, yesterday.

Paid all monthly bills (including 2 mortgages) with FAA after tax money, and still had enough to put some in the bank. Now the next month it didn't happen, but if I did it once....I can do it again!


Marty Saccone

5 Years Ago

I've been here a bit over 2 years,.... and have gotten about 25 or so sales on prints and greeting cards from buyers browsing.

I'm my own best customer,...having purchased 32 prints and 295 greeting cards.

Am not at a break even point yet,...but getting closer by the year ;-)) I hope

I enjoy the creative aspects of creating the best in each of my images and improving my FAA premium website as I grow along ;-)

I try to present new and different pieces that set themselves apart from run of the mill images and over done subjects.

Unfortunately I have chosen a narrow theme of interest,..(Down East Maine),...and therefor have limited subject interest.

FAA is the only site I display my work to sell online.

I am not active on social networks nor do I market myself as I could,...so that hurts my sales and exposure.

I derive a great deal of satisfaction from a portfolio I am proud of,....and have worked very hard to create and pull it all together.

Have especially enjoyed new friendships in various forums and groups here,....the talent and opinions expressed on FAA have helped me grow and improve each day.

FAA is a very enjoyable adventure for this guy in his retirement years.

Reached a number of milestones last month:
200 pictures, 20,000 views, 100 followers, 600th view on 1 picture. Most importantly I made my first sale.
Yesterday I set a new high for views in 24 hours with 317.
9 hours into today I already have 146 - could be on for a new record!

I just made my "30th sale" in 1-1/2 years of being with FAA.

I'll have my 5th year completed, starting my 6th on the 18th of this month. I'm trying to hit 3,000 images by the end of the year. I have 42 to go. That's after deleting over 500 images since I started that were not up to snuff. It's easier to tell now what will print and what won't. If I could just figure out what sells :-). Although, the Michigan landmark and shorelines sell better for me than any of the others, which I guess is a good thing since that's where I live....


David King

The other day I hit 20,000 views, at least according to my profile page, "behind the scene's" says something different.

I reached my first milestone a couple of days ago... my first non-bot visitor!

Turned out that it was just my mom, but hey, success comes one step at a time! :)

My next milestone is 1000 uploads, hopefully my upcoming art projects will get me there.

The 22nd of July, tomorrow marks my first full year as a Premium Member of FAA. It has been an interesting year of learning and hopefully improving. Hopefully this coming year can start yielding a few extra bucks.

Thanks for having me.


Western Exposure

17 Days Ago

My name is Western Exposure* (obviously not really, I mean who'd call their kid "Western", right?), it's been one year since my first upload.

So far I've managed to upload 306 artworks, designs and photos which received close to 32000 'visitors', more than 1000 comments (Thank you, guys and gals!) and oodles of group features (Thank you, group admins!). I even managed to get placed in a group challenge once. Yay! Sales? Six, including a few nice big prints. Onwards and upwards.

*And if anyone's wondering why I chose "Western Exposure": One of my favourite TV shows of all times is "Northern Exposure" and since I live in the very West of Europe in the West of Ireland in a rural area that at times feels as bizarre as the local community in said show I went for that name. And then of course there is the hint at photography (which I'm still trying to learn to get better at .... the fact that my lense just gave up is not helping right now ...).

July was an exciting month. I've been at this a year and during July I reached 10,000 visitors (presumably most are bots...but hey). I also just posted my 400th photo. It's been a nice year (well except for the virus) and I have enjoyed looking at everyone else's art and learning a ton by being in an ever changing art gallery every day. I've been encouraged to to better.

Thanks to everyone who has answered my questions. I look forward to another great year.

This month I broke 250,000 visits, met my 2020 goal of $2,500 in print sales (with 5 months still left to go) , already surpassed my 2020 goal of having 750+ images uploaded, and won the Tony Award. It has been a great second year on FAA so far and all the more incentive to keep plugging. Happy I found this site. Lots, lots and lots of hard work, but can be done with digging in and not letting the slow periods discourage you.


DK Digital

Just broke 120,000 visits. They say to celebrate the small things right?


I just had my best non-holiday month ever for number of sales. Including two "affiliate sales" I had a total or 15 sales for the month.

In addition, as of July 31st, I've had more sales in a seven month period than I have ever had in a full 12 months. Happy camper? Yup!

If the affiliate program is continued I would anticipate a stellar year for me here at FAA.

Woohoo! I now have 100 sales!

The fact that I've been here since 2013 and that out of almost 83,000 visitors I sold 100 things shouldn't get me down ...
(I do little to no promotion and I know a lot of those were bots - so it's all good.)


Annette Winter

Baby steps...being new here it's exciting to see the 'visit' count steadily growing.

I've just clicked over 1,000 visits, not as impressive as many of the posts here which are awesome, but I'm happy with the progress so far.....hopefully I can announce a first sale here in the near future!!!
