My love/hate relationship with prints


I had a hard and fast rule about selling prints of my watercolor paintings that are still in my possession....I wouldn't compete against my own higher priced painting with an inexpensive replica. I have offered prints of paintings that I have either sold or given away to friends and family but as long as I had the original.....you had to buy the original. So there...!

Well....after a little investigating, I have discovered how well artists on Etsy and other online venues have done with there prints. So....I have jumped on the band wagon. Most of these artists that sell prints also have the original painting on sale in their shops. Not everyone can afford original artwork and I'm glad they have the option of owning an affordable print of a painting that they love.

So.....I have jumped on the print bandwagon!!

Please visit my watercolor print section to see some very affordable artwork. Or....you can buy an original!!

Wonderful idea, Yankee! I hope your prints do very well for you! I think those who buy originals are going to buy originals when they find something they want.

yankee, it's a great idea...like you said, not everyone can afford an original, but if they love it, they can still get the print and look at it all they want! And who knows, they may love it so much or someone else might see it and buy the original. It's the best kind of advertising. :))
