Asking for feedback

Hi Everyone,

I've found a great new service that will allow me to make and sell prints of my work online. You will be able to order prints (paper or canvas, framed or unframed) directly and have them shipped to anywhere you like. This may be especially helpful for gift giving.

The service is a start up one from the printing company that I currently use. I love these guys and want to help them grow and I need to grow too. So I am going to set up my gallery with the kinds of images that will be most popular with my fans. This is where I need your help. I've created a poll which you will see at the right side of the page. (I may be using this feature more frequently as time goes on to gauge your feedback and to help me offer you more items that are to your liking using my art)

I'm running the poll until 6-8-10 at 12:00 pm. I just like how those numbers looked :-) I will be creating my online print gallery using your feedback to help direct what sorts of images to offer, so I hope you will let me know what items you are most interested in. This is a very real way you can help support the work that I do. If you enjoy coming here and seeing these creations, I hope you will consider supporting the artist by purchasing my products. I need your help to continue. It is really that simple.

Thank you for taking the time to fill out the poll. If you have any further comments you'd like to make about items you'd like to buy using my images, PLEASE leave it as a comment here on this post or you can email me directly. I want to offer things that you want to have in your own homes or give as special and unusual gifts to friends. Thank you for your feedback! -Sally

Hi, Sally-
I love your work! I'd be glad to fill out the poll. I just got a DSLR, finally, and have been looking for a good printing service; which one do you use? I'm not quite up to speed on my camera but hope to be able to get some prints done by the end of the summer. Thanks as always for sharing your beautiful images!

Your art is exquisite and it gives me very much pleasure. I would love to purchase a print and I'm sure I would have a difficult time choosing just one.

Hi Sally~
I'm glad to do the poll, too.
I would LOVE to have some of your images of Faerie Houses, and maybe a very special one on canvas :)

Good luck with this new path!

Am very happy to take the poll. I sense this is a good move for you to get your work out there. It offers so much to the world: beauty, love, healing, peace. And goodness knows that our little corner of the universe needs all the love, beauty, peace, and healing it can get right now. Go for it, Sally. We will be there for you.
