A Bright Prospect for Artists

A BRIGHT PROSPECT FOR ARTISTS
Economic woes are affecting all, including artists. Several galleries have closed their doors, and state funded organizations for the Arts are in jeopardy.
I am an optimist. So, despite the swirling darkness of hopelessness, I look for light. Etsy is a little light in that vast darkness. It is an online gallery that features handmade articles, including Art.
I joined Etsy about a week ago, and have already noticed the increase in traffic coming to my site. Although I have not sold any paintings as of today, increased traffic will eventually result in sales, or capture the attention of a gallery. The fees are low and reasonable. So, as an artist, I invite you to check it out and visit  http://www.etsy.com/
