Finding a market for your art is a challenge. To successfully sell your art you have to place it in front of buyers who are interested in your subject matter, like your style and have the means to buyer your work. Many artists wonder if they should expand their artistic offerings by creating work in a different style, different sizes, at different price points, or by licensing their images to reach a broader market.
