Why Sell Paintings Online?

Certainly with the advent of 20th century Modern art, the whole idea of the museum or gallery space has been challenged and with some art forms becoming obsolete. I will always enjoy going to museums. They are so experiential. I have also found selling my art online to be very satisfying. I love working small. It is very intimate. It is staggering to know that what I am doing can be seen anywhere in the world. I check the google analytics and see that my work has been seen in China, Indonesia, Turkey, India and South Africa to name a few. It is really quite remarkable. Galleries are great, do not get me wrong. It just so expansive and limitless online. I have always called the Internet "the outer space of information." Now one artist alone in her studio can connect her art to others on her own terms. It is a celebration of what it means to be entrepreneurial and it keeps me painting. Galleries will always be around but the Internet is such an exciting new venue for art.

I know just enough html to be dangerous so I am getting someone to help me.
Thanks you for looking.
