I will be out of a job come October, and I want to start seeing if I could possibly make some money from painting more seriously than I have been in the past. Whether that be selling work, commissions, contacting galleries, etc. My only issue is how to start? I've done commissions in the past, but never had a steady stream of clients. Selling original work has also been slow, I've only ever sold one or two drawings.
Does anyone have any advice? I am well aware it won't be easy or maybe not even possible; but I am pretty confident in my work ethic and my ability to paint my arm off
