A Bit of Creative Marketing

Barrel Cactus
by Keith Bond
Keith Bond has the natural ability to see beyond the picturesque beauty of a scene to portray the spirit of the of the landscape. He has the gift of capturing the true essence of to the place and paints an emotional response to the scene, rather than the literal depiction.

Keith is not only an acclaimed artist but also writes regularly for the FineArtViews Newsletter. Recently while reading some of the back issues I ran across his article about 'Home Shows', and how they can be a new venue for artist.

We are all looking for ways to sell our art in today's economy. Keith's article, Home Shows, outlines how to use this venue, step by step. I had a small showing in a friends home last year. It went well but had I had Keith's insightful knowledge and instructions I know I could have done better.

I encourage you...take a few minuets to read Keith's detailed, thought provoking article. It's a great way to get your work in front of people who are collectors and do it in an intimate setting.

Psalm 28:7
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.
Psalm 28:6-8 (in Context)

Hi Marsha... I had read Linda Blondheim's blog and she did a similar clever thing with a Realtor friend who was trying to sell a house.

I absolutely LOVE Keith's cactus... it's absolutely gorgeous!!

I took a look at Linda's blog...what a neat idea. Thanks for pointing me to the article. Yes, Keith's cactus is wonderful, a little different than his usual landscapes. It was my personal pick to post with this article.

Thanks for stopping by.
