Congrats – quitting your day job to focus on your art is an exciting transition!


Yes, it can also be a bit of a shock and challenging to plan for. Don’t worry, there are a few ways to get ready for it. So, let’s talk about how to sell your art, especially if you haven’t done it before or made many sales before.

When I started doing artwork, I went with both acrylic and oil, but I personally like oil the best because Oil paint is slow drying and versatile, allowing you to easily manipulate it on the canvas.

Painting with oil has a lot more rules to follow so that the paint dries appropriately, so it is easy to become overwhelmed by the various procedures to follow.

I’m Zoe Gong, an artist living and working in Ottawa, the capital city of Canada. I paint abstract, landscape, and animal oil paintings. Mainly focus on small canvas oil painting and oil pastel. I love to use fingers and palette-knife on a canvas to bring a quality texture to my pieces. The filter of my observation and ability to put color and marks on canvas gives each painting a unique perspective. Nature is the protagonist of my paintings, capture the essence of the subject is my goal. I create blogs to share oil painting and oil pastel techniques as well as art business tips.
