After nine dedicated years of selling on eBay, and selling on Etsy here and there for 6 years, I'll be closing both stores over the next week. I will still have my website http://www.mistybenson.com
, but I will be retiring a great deal of art from there as well. If there is something you have your eye on, I recommend getting it now. I do not know what I will be keeping on my website after next week. The Morbidly Adorables have been begging for change for awhile, and it's time I listened:)
I know a lot of people will be wondering why. Due to significant changes in my life, I will have far less time to work on my art. So with the time I have, my primary focus will be fulfilling my contract to U.S. Games and finishing the tarot deck as soon as possible. I'll be focusing my energy more on original paintings, limited and timed releases, and my own website. eBay in particular takes a lot of focus, the rules are always changing, the fees have gone up while the traffic auction views have gone down. It is no longer a good fit for my art. I think it's time to represent my art exclusively through my website. I need to spend more time building my website and directing people there:) And no, I can't say what will be retired, but pretty much all open edition prints will be going. 5"x7", 8.5"x11", and 13"x19" prints will all likely be retired. I'll be focusing on selling originals, and then a handful of those will be available as limited edition prints.
From now on when I release new paintings, I'll be offering them first to my mailing list, then I will be putting them on my website for the public to purchase. I will still update Facebook and keep blogging on my journal, but my Mailing List will be the first to know about new stuff, get special offers, etc.
If you would like to receive an e-mail update when I post new artwork, update my blog, and get exclusive offers, please join my mailing list!
Thank you for all the years of support through eBay and Etsy! Like I said, I'll still be doing art, it's just time to focus on my website. I hope you'll continue to keep up with me in other ways! I will keep you updated on any other changes. Please let me know if you have any questions!
