What sells on Fine Art America?

I currently have 620 images on Fine Art America, although I would be the first to admit that some of the early images I uploaded were probably not very suitable for display purposes. It is too easy to think of what might sell for stock, and just upload that, but in reality, people are looking for something to put on their walls and so you really need to think about what you yourself would be willing to print and frame. Of course, everyone’s view of art is different, but a combination of your view plus any social media input you might have (how many likes when you posted it on Instagram, say) is probably the best you can do. I’ve started to add more images recently and to help me decide what works, I wanted to see which images had sold in the past. As a result, this post has become – what has sold on FineArtAmerica?

April 2017 – $108 profit

I’ll work backwards from today so that you can see if there are any trends. I did actually surprise myself with this exercise. I had no idea I had sold so many images of Washington DC. I guess the reason for that might be that many people go as tourists and want something to remember their visit (or maybe the members of congress want to have a picture on their walls?).  It makes me think I must go through my library and look for other Washington DC shots that might make the grade as wall art. Perhaps some digital painting or black and white treatment might make sense as well.

Great shots, looks like D.C is popular! I’m still patiently waiting for my first sale.

These are beautiful. I’ve only sold, so far, a picture of a local water tower and the photo of an antique car.

Thanks! There were a surprising number of sales when I listed them all out! I’m trying black and white moody images just now to see if I can get a sale there. The new ones are here
