Hi, so three days left, still sane and today ideas for art didn’t happen but important art admin did. So I didn’t draw but I did upload more photos, I did review needs for reprints for the shops / shop / Purbeck Art Weeks in September and sent in a big order for prints and some cards and just realised typing this forgot postcards again.
Okay, emailed order in…as prints have sold more frequently and clear favoured pieces are starting to emerge in my portfolio reorders become easier.
I have also identified my provisional pieces to exhibit at Rollington in terms of original works and will have 6 originals p,us linked prints and cards plus some other recent works where original has sold already.
The works are:
Fishing boats A3 piece currently sat in shop awaiting me to continue and complete
Anvil Point lighthouse / Durlston cliffs – last piece completed also A3
Summer Leaves A3
‘Golden Horizon’ departing Poole, July 2021 A3
Rest and Admire A4
Old Harry and Studland from Brownsea Island A3
There’s a trend for larger pieces here I see and now I offer prints at A3 and A4 plus cards. This is working well for me in terms of sales and I am starting to identify clear collections within my portfolio.
Last of the leaves will feature as prints and cards but as I have already sold the original it won’t be on the main board with the originals.
Unlike selling in own shop where I don’t pay commission Rollington does have a commission fee of 25% but I will take any hit on this as I want my pricing to remain consistent and accessible across Rollington, AndyKnillArt Studio and HappyHay Emporium – ie my three stockists from Sept 11 to26 2021.
In the brochure I am listed as a Rollington artist, hence more pieces than I have had before. I will however run the new AndyKnillArt Studio like an Open Studio and open every day of the art weeks except my two Rollington duty days where I will be able to visit some other local artists too,
I have also bought a new type of business card to trial for the next year which is contactless. I will have it alongside my new square card business cards with linktr.ee QR code so visitors can choose a walk away product, QR code access to business info or contactless nfc business info which uses https://linktr.ee/andyknillartstudio – go me for experimenting.
That will do for today, back tomorrow and thanks for all the views almost another record month with 15 days of month still to go. Less visitors but more views of posts per visitor – that’s the sort of interest I want to generate.
