Well, once again not much time to blog in the past week but I have managed to update some of the pages a little with some paintings and the beginnings of the photo page.
I did promise to let you know the results of the poll about art scams posted at the old blog. Although voting was slow, it would appear that 40% of respondents have never had a scam email regarding their art – lucky them! At the opposite end of the spectrum an equal number confessed to receiving emails from scammers every week – unlucky them. The remaining 20% told us that they had had more than one scam attempt in their inbox but less than 5.
I myself would fall in the final 20%, but I expect as time goes by I will receive more and more of them. Sadly it would seem that the more you advertise your art (or indeed any saleable commodity) online, the more fools will come out of the woodwork and bombard your inbox with stupid attempts to scam you. The only advice I can give is to be careful – the signs are easy enough to spot and doing a search online for “art scams” will give you all the information you need to decide if that buyer from Nigeria is genuine or not ha!
I had another email from Oleg this week, (you may recall my previous post about Oleg here) and it seems that I have been included in an abstract art directory at a place called Abstract Art As The Method Of Life
I’ve had a quick look round and there is quite a variety of work on display there, so I’m pleased to be listed alongside artists from all around the world. Thanks Oleg 🙂
On a personal level, I will be getting married at the end of next week – 25th August to be precise – and I will be off travelling for a couple of weeks after that so things may get even quieter around here for a while. When we return, I hope to be working on the Cayman Art page that I want to add to the blog. I’m looking forward to showing off the talent from some of my countrymen/women and I am sure you will enjoy viewing their work and hearing their stories.
Ok, artist submissions – I’m always looking for good artists websites and blogs to feature here at the humble Arteccentrix blog. If you would like to see your name in lights and some of your work featured here, just send me mail, telling me a bit about yourself and your place(s) on the web. I can never promise how quickly I’ll get around to featuring any particular artist but I do love to hear from you so don’t be shy.
