I'm curious what people's experience is regarding what sells vs what doesn't & where it sells best vs otherwise. Anyone care to share their experiences? I'm sure all would benefit from this type of discussion.

While I appreciate the point of your comment, I don't think of making & selling art as contradictory (of course that's easier for me as a photographer, since I can easily make more prints of the work I do, while a painter cannot (other than reproductions). That's how I overcome the feeling that there are some of my work I'd rather keep on my own walls. On the other hand, I also don't see it as a contraction because I can do both. I can make work for myself & whether or not it sells is irrelevant, but I can also attempt to make work that others want to buy. My view is that it's important to me to be able to make things that others can relate to enough to want to have them & it's also important for me to make things just because they spring from a creative impulse I need to express. I don't see why I can't do both. My question was really intended to draw out artists impressions of what types of work they have found sell best.
