I have had the suggestion given to me to paint small paintings and try to get stores downtown to carry them. They are generally 5x5 and 5x7 and I set them on small easels. I use canvas board not stretched canvas to keep the cost down and make them easily packable for travelers. I have about 10 done so far, all seascapes, very popular according to everyone! I snapped a few pics of them and thought you might like to see them. Feel free to try the idea for yourself. Let me know how it works for you! BTW, I plan to sell these for $25-$30 each. Bread and butter you might say.
