    You need to market your work either by pounding the pavement and starting a web page. You can put it on e-bay and other sights like kijiji if you want to sell without cost. Put a portfolio together and go to the galleries and stores that sell art and tourist type things. Look into establishments that display local art works like little restaurants ect.Look into the local towns when they have markets and see what the cost of displaying your work.It's work and may cost a bit to get it going but if your good, it will start to sell...you just have to get it out there.
    One way is to have a website designed to show your art, have business cards made so people can check out your website. If you go to the art shows in your area people will see your work and the ones who like it may purchase some paintings or prints.

    There are many art shows or even small swap shops to go to be seen. Some places near the beach will allow you to go and paint or show your work, you may want to even get a small tent for shows. I am an amateur artist and these are the only things that I can suggest from personal experience, that I know produce interest.

    One more thing you can go to galleries and meet with the owners, if the owners like your work they may let you put a few pieces of your work on consignment. Good luck, they don't call us starving artists for nothing. Best wishes, Leeroy.
    No such thing, unless your a dead artist.
    Not ever going to happen, sorry.
    Why not start an art school?
    youll be doing what your good at, teaching others and making money.
    Easy.
    Ill give you my number call sometime,
