One of the reasons I did this now was some encouragement from fellow artist Sherri Ann Strikwerda. You can see her art at: https://www.facebook.com/pages/artbysas/192487130599
I didn't just jump in, I checked out a few shops hoping to figure out how it all works but I can't say that was overly successful. One thing I did find out was that people are selling their art which was encouraging. So, with the help of another fellow artist, Laura Leeder, (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Laura-Leeder-artist/302848629743774?fref=ts), I filled in some blanks, added some art and voilà! I have an Etsy shop.
Now come the hardest part - letting people know the shop exists! I have posted the link to my shop on Facebook and the website: added it to my emails and will add it here. I am trying to connect with other Etsy shop owners as well.
Once again, here is the link to my Etsy shop, I hope you will check it out and share it with your friends. http://www.etsy.com/shop/MellowoodArtGallery
