Staring At The Walls...the Perfect Time To Buy Some New Artwork!

Could there be a better time to refresh the artwork in your home? After weeks of staring at the same walls, why not do some shopping online and have some exciting new artwork delivered right to your door?

What say you?

Good idea but not snow.

Plenty to choose from to meet your particular needs.

Great idea Ed,
I like to help this stressed out artist community with all of my images at full prise. I don't want to make anyone feel being treated as charity, so I treat every one with full respect with full price.
Buy some of my beach and waterfall works that would help to lower the stress and calm anyone down so the artists can focus and concentrates on creating art.Stop worrying about things we can't control.

" why not do some shopping online." Have you seen the stimulus bill? UGH!

I do online shopping but mostly food delivery nowadays. 😊

I would argue purchasing art expenses, one should be able to deduct as medical expense, it is for physiological help to cope with the stress !

1. Who said anything about a discount?
2. Who said anything about marketing to anyone waiting for a check?

Don't look in the mirror expecting to see your buyers. Look outward.

I am just saying it has been my facebook campaign. You may not mean it but there coincidence is still true.

Unfortunately I can not buy anyone artwork and not even supplies for my artwork because I have no income at the moment.

I can not think about anything other on obtain income. But I am happy for you who can buy artwork. There are many I hope to eventually buy. After the crisis.

You have the right idea Marcio. Artists sell to buyers. Buyer means someone with disposable income.

Someone who might be stuck inside their big beautiful house starting at the walls.

Right now might be a good time for an FAA ad campaign. Checks are on the way and anyone with much cash in the market is feeling more wealthy today.

Target this rise in wealth and the mental boost before it fades and everything goes to hell in a few weeks.

Might as well use that cash before it vanishes again.

Aren't many/most of the printers FAA uses shut down due to Coronavirus?

In California all non-essential businesses were ordered to close, and increasing numbers of other states have made similar mandates.

I work at an antique restoration and art selling store. Original artwork and antique furniture is something that doesn't just disappear to zero when the stock market goes down...buyers will always have them, as they are solid commodities. A paper or digital stock that may be worth thousands now may be worth nothing later. But art remains.

Susan,

No not at all from what I understand. I also have a online business elsewhere. That set of factories was down for less than a week. Now both factories are up with two states clearing them to produce. Again that is not FAA, but another business.

It is dealing with the public that has to be limited. Not a POD like FAA.

Ed, what was I was I saying last week? Make lemonade? Something like that.

David, don't misinform people about things you obviously know nothing about.

In California, ALL businesses that are non-essential must shut down OR work from home. Dealing with the public has ZERO to do with the shelter-in-place order. And I know there is a printer for FAA located here.

Can we get official communication from what the situation with the printers is? FAA is pretty much the only site I've seen in the eCommerce world without clear outlines or a FAQ of what is and is not happening.

I am seeing FAA artists plastering this and that about the printers (not just here but social media as well) and it would be nice to have official communication from FAA itself and not hearsay.

 

Susan Wiedmann

Chance, I think you meant "hearsay" not "heresy." ☺

 

Chance Kafka

Susan, you're right.. autocorrect! I fixed it

 

Susan Wiedmann

Chance, one thing we can rely on is for autocorrrect to often be incorrect!

I think most US printing happens in NC and Texas. If FAA doesn’t make an announcement the best thing to do is probably to keep an eye on the counties in which the printers are located.

NC seems a bit slow to do much and the Lt. Gov of Texas is ready to have grandparents sacrifice themselves to get the economy going again. Whatever is printed in Texas will probably keep shipping unless something drastic changes there.

That's the right thinking, look for opportunities and the bright side of things

Good points Adam. Thank you for sharing.

Would still be nice for FAA to keep us posted even a nice "All our printers are fully operational at this time and we will update you on any delays or closures" would be nice. Many of us are paying to advertise our work (which is also free advertising for FAA) and I sure don't feel confident telling inquiring prospective buyers "I think the printers are still open" especially when artists are sounding alarms elsewhere and I don't have facts.

 

Adam Jewell

I agree Chance. Definitely don’t want to be ramping up an ad campaign and suddenly not be able to take orders!

 

Chance Kafka

Yep! I've suspended all mine but still have shops for drop shipping open

Lots of speculation. Now back to the topic at hand.

Good time to redecorate? I say yes. I already had to turn one bedroom into a dorm room and another into a college classroom.

My front entrance became an executive office and a corner of the master bedroom become a photo processing center.

The dining room table has been taken over by a giant puzzle.

People are working from home, looking at their houses like never before.

Sold my first t-shirt designed for a friend in Florida who needed to warn her neighbors to back off and keep their distance.

Even in crisis, there are needs to be filled.

....

Sold another one to a relative who is a postal worker.

Seems we've reached the point where everyone is starting to settle in. The TP stockpile is secured. Freezers filled. Home offices set up and kinks worked out. The idea that being sheltered in place has been accepted.

There is a sense of calm knowing that the next four weeks or more will be spent at home.

As Maslow's need hierarchy states, once the base needs of food, shelter and security are met, more trivial matters can be pursued such as buying artwork.

I've seen a return of print sales of late.

Well I don't know if it's a good time to sell art or not, I for one am not confined to home as my business is essential and I have customers calling me daily that request we come to there home to do needed work.

I am still giving some time to art and have set up my store again on ebay, I don't worry about FAA printers being down as I print my own, 13" x 19" is the largest size I can print but that's good enough for me.

I don 't listen to the news so I'm not caught up in all the hysteria and misinformation. Alina and I take precautions when we go purchase materials and go to customers homes, gloves, masks, social distancing and avoiding homes where people are sick of any illnesses.

Our customers are very happy to see us and very greatfull we can provide our services to them. Business has actually picked up for us causing us to even work on Saturdays which we usually don't.

I still have yet to sell a single art print in my ebay store but I have had a lot of eyes on my work, it's only been a few weeks so I'm confident it has potential, the outlay of cash has been minimal and I have a viable store so I'm not worried about it. Our main business has been doing extremely well and I just pray that it continues and that we stay healthy and can continue to serve our customers. At the moment we have work for the next two weeks. If it slows down I will focus more on my art.
