Hobson’s Lighthouse by Ave Hurley & Art Promotional tips


“Hobson’s Lighthouse”

ref:AH-001-134

by “Ave Hurley”

Based on my original [mirrored] image acrylic painting done several years ago, this digital repainting has taken on a new life and appearance of its own, as I manually, digitally repainted it at 1200% resolution, one pixel at a time,creating details that my finest 10/0 sable brush never could have done.

In particular I digitally repainted this using a pointalism technique, adding in details to the US Flag and windows of the house and lighthouse. The US Flag is proudly flying and added in a double masted sailing ship going off into the distance. I added new details to the foreground and changed the coloring overall and re-painted the waves and water.

RELEASE: April 2012, so, if interested, please bookmark this page and come back soon, or email me and be among the first to obtain a copy of this fine digital painting.It will initially be available as a limited edition, hand signed Artist’s continental sized glossy finished postcard, meant for framing.

SIZE: 4.27″ high by 5.25″ wide.

LIMITED SIGNED EDITION : I will only have 100 printed of this and will number and date them when the printing is commissioned.

Price: $5.00 for a collectors first edition art postcard with free shipping.

Other sizes will be available by special order as this can be printed in any size up to 16×20 which will be on my POD Sites shortly. I will be making Giclees of this in sizes up to 12×16 by the end of April when my print shop is once again set up here at my new shop. Just contact me here at ArtRave.

ArtRave.com

Above is being used as an example of what you as an artist should do in describing your art when posting.

How to ‘use’ [ArtRave] & any galleries to help promote your art work & increase chances of making sales:

1. List your art in the Gallery [ and other galleries you belong to]

  • Use your Artist ID# [if you have one, or use your name in the title bar along with the title of the art, ] I personally assign a page # to create a uniform inventory online that I use on all sites I belong to.
  • Give full description of your art : size, Medium used, Price, contact info.
  • Let viewers know if the original is for sale or not and give a price.If you sell this art as a print, let viewers know if they can purchase directly from you or not and if there are any limited editions, signed versions and what sizes are available.
  • Provide your contact information and correct URLS to where your art is being sold.Also include your profile page URL since viewers may want to read your BIO and check out any other information you provide there.
  • Viewers are unlikely to search for your art, unless you provide accurate information
  • Check your Gallery page URL using your ID# & page number [example: AH-001-034] at the end of the URL being assigned. This will identify your art in search engines along with the info placed correctly in the Title bar
  • Use the same title info, separated by comma’s and quotation marks and paste into the Tag line along with other descriptive words, so searchbots can index your work on Google, Bing, Yahoo etc..

2. Repost your art into the FREE Promotional ArtRave Categories that apply – even if more than one.There are over 100 & this is a free service to all artists from any art site. Only rule is it has to be ‘family friendly’ since ArtRave is a family friendly network, geared to helping emerging artists online to succeed and promote all t heir art sites collectively.

3.Open a second window, to start a blog post on the piece. Be sure to upload the picture and put the Gallery URL as well as the Category URL for the work and the complete copied description you provided in the Gallery, including any sites you have this art for sale at.Keep the blog open til you have all the pertinent information copied there.Tie your info together across the net~!!

4. In the blog, write a short paragraph about the art, whatever inspired you or details about the location of where the art took place or any info that might stir more of the viewer’s interest. This may mean the difference when the viewer is making their choice in buying your art over other art they are checking out. Remember art is competitive and viewers are swayed by many factors, including the topic or appearance, the story, the price and how the art makes them feel. You need to make the feel good about your art without making a hard sell. The viewer must always feel in control over what they are seeing, but you need to present your art in a way that will make them want to see it enough to own it.

5. Copy your blog into any other blogs you may have online. The more you spread the news about the same piece of art, the more it will show up in search indexes and be more available to art viewers.

6.Copy the URL of the blog into our Facebook Group and or other promo pages that are available. Be sure to use the Like buttons on the Gallery and Category pages as well as on the Blog pages when available.Twitter it too. Do each and every Like available – Twitter, Facebook, Google+1 and also post urls & your short paragraph about your art into any of the clubs you belong to and on the sites you belong to.

If you learn to repeat this process for each work of art you upload online, you will be self promoting your work using these tools and your art will get noticed and have a better chance of reaching the viewers that may choose to buy it.

It is not enough to just upload a picture to a random site and hope that some millionaire will come along and ‘discover’ you and make you rich overnite. If you dont go about presenting your work properly and energetically online, you will remain unlikely to sell your work .

This process or system I have laid out is simple and works.I have sold alot of my art this way.

Now for more promotion and advertising, you can use ad agencies, but they are expensive.

If you want an alternative, collective low cost advertising for your art, consider buying a banner ad here on ArtRave. I was doing them for my art but now do it for other artists as well. [or read my forum on ArtRave & do it yourself~!]

While other sites charge alot per day to advertise, you can buy a low-cost ad that will last an entire month for less than you would pay for one day on most sites. [this just covers bandwidth & site support] You can choose what art and site you want viewers to go to with your banner ad.

I also have a Top Artist Ad services which are banner ads with per clicks. Unlike other banner services, I DO NOT CHARGE PER CLICK – ~!

Most adlists charge over $100 a year and up to $.35 per click thru~

I only charge $25 per year and have no click thru charges. I worked hard learning how and creating all these additional services to share with other artists to provide you with an effective way to show, promote and sell your art online.

Do not fool yourself by simply loading art and leaving it everywhere.

I created ArtRave as a promotional artist network, but it is not enough for you to simply post a piece of art and disappear as some have done. That is a waste of time and bandwidth on your part. You need to be proactive if you wish to sell your art online anywhere you go. If however you do it using ArtRave, you will see more results for your efforts and I will help you along the way more than any other site will.

Have a good day 🙂 Happy posting and promoting~!!

Zazzle really does a great job with Art & Photos


I am now having Zazzle use some of my artworks to print on clothing and coffee  mugs and a whole lot more… It looks pretty good~ I  want to buy my own coffee mugs~ !

First the devil said it to Eve… now he says it to Obama~!!


What If ?

 What about It?

What if you were in..?

What about?…

Supposing this happened….?

What if it happened to your child?

What if it happened to you?

What if it happened to a friend?

What if everybody else was doing it??

What if he did it first?? or she did it first?

What if you didnt get caught ??

What if God wasn’t looking…?

What if God ‘didnt care’?

What if God is dead?

What if God didnt answer ?

What if God changed his mind ?

What if man vetoed God?

Will God wink his eye because man made his own law ?

Will God bend his almighty will to the will  of the man who can say what if?

What IF the devil was right?

What if the devil has a better plan ?

What if the bible isnt real ?

What if you can do as you please as long as it is right in your own eyes?

Why serve a God who allows you to be tempted and tried?

Why serve God when you can serve yourself, you surely will not dier?

Why believe in God when you can take over the job yourself?

Why care  that others kill murder steal usurp deceive and even rule over you?

Why care about anyone other than yourself?

Why not charge God with wrong when that fictious child is raped?

Why bother with proof when you have plenty of supposition?

Why listen to the voice of reason when you enjoy your own opinions?

Why consider what Jesus would do when you can be your own Jesus and do what you want?

Why worry about the future as you are the master of your own universe!

Why not hold a form of religion, just deny the power of it !~

Why not do what’s right in your own eyes and back it up with convenient verse and law?

The bible says, that ‘There is a way that seems right to a man but it ends in death.’

‘My ways are not your ways says the Lord…’

‘Try to  learn what is pleasing to the Father…’

‘Choose this day whom you will serve”

“If God be God, serve him, if not serve …”

..in Job, the devil said ,”take away all that he has and he will curse you to your face.”

‘Jesus said the devil was a  liar and murderer from the beginning.’

‘The devil seduced Eve with “What if’s”….He does that to everyone…so that they may find fault with God and then become estranged  from God becoming prey for the devil.’

The devil tempted Jesus in the wilderness and tempts us the same ways as well…but Jesus rebuked the devil to told him to depart…

…to the pure HE[God] shows himself pure….

How do you seek God?

…to the ‘crooked'[those who seek to justify their actions]He[God] shows himself perverse[crooked].

If you *want* to believe that God is unfair, uncaring and not in control of the life you now live or the lives of those women /girls who become pregnant under various circumstances, then you are opting to play God by approving abortion!~ What else will you approve??

Each one is lured and enticed by their own desires…when conceived that desire gives birth to sin… which when full grown brings forth death!!

To compound any sin relating to conception with the choice of abortion is adding sin to sin by all concerned!

Can you elect yourself to be God?

Will he allow it? If He ‘stays judgement’ a day longer than demanded is that a weakness or a mercy on his part?

Medical abortions have been done through out time as lives were imperilled such as the fictitious scenarios such as of a child raped who conceived and couldnt birth…such cases have always been allowed to be medically supported and when it comes to choice between mother and child viability, decisions have always been allowed, some which result in medical abortions.

We NEVER  needed the phoney premised Roe v Wade to ensure rights of those medically needing an abortion.

Even the woman who posed before the law representing the Roe v Wade decision REPENTED AND SAID THE LAW SHOULD BE REPEALLED.

ROE V WADE  IS NOT ABOUT WOMEN WHO HAVE BEEN RAPED AND ARE MEDICALLY UNABLE TO CARRY A CHILD TO TERM.

That is the carrot ,bait and justification used by PRO CHOICE brainwashers to perpetuate infanticide of the unborn.

Legal abortion is only legal murder.

The world is sick…the law most likely will never be  overturned..the innocent will keep being murdered.

Condoning it is become a participant of that sin.

It is being a co-conspirator.

When standing before God on Judgement DAy [if you believe in Him], you may be guilty of judgement resulting in hell, for embracing the seductive acceptance of abortions being  a woman’s right under any circumstance.

Most Abortions are performed for petty convenience..to take back a mistake…to correct the results of fornication and adultery.

Pretexted by freeing a woman’s body of the infections of rape and its consequences.

I sheltered a young woman who had an abortion who I befriended for a few years.Due to her ignorance and lack of self control and limited education, she conceived 2 more times and each time held off getting an abortion til she was far enough along  so she was able to use abortion as her chosen form of birth control! She actually had the audacity to go to church the night before having an abortion performed at 14 weeks gestation. She didnt tell us what the medical procedure was for. Later when I was told of what she had done and that it was here 3rd time, I confronted her and she said she didnt want people to think she was a bad person for getting pregnant without being married! What a lame excuse to kill a baby – to kill 3 babies! but Roe v Wade made it possible for her to wait til the last minute and get an abortion each time~

There have not been 40 Million rapes of 5 yr old children over the last 30 years who got pregnant and would have died without Roe v Wade!

 There have been 40 million ‘choices’ of women who have been co-erced into thinking abortion was an alternative to giving birth.

Unfortunately many women who otherwise would not want an abortion have been  manipulated and seduced into getting abortions as well feeling  they had no choice. I know many of these women who still have regrets and nightmares about their abortions and some who have failed to ever conceive again even when they tried.

Our generation has become so self indulgent, self serving and callous towards the rights and needs of others, including the unborn that we allow them to be discarded, murdered in abortion mills.

Many Babies are considered an inconvenience to the guy who likes to play around without protection…so let him just pay for the abortion,right?  That makes it ‘okay’??? It makes him irresponsible for 18 yrs of child support, thats all~

Let the girl who was too drunk to say ‘no’ or remember who it was she was with or how many she was with, just ‘erase the mistake’ by not bringing an ‘unwanted’ child into the world??????  

Adoption is too much of a hassle anyway???

Why feel hurt or remorse for giving a live child away when an abortionist can flush it down the drain and make it go away in minutes???

After all ‘out of sight ‘…. no one else would know and then you can resume your life as usual with no strings attached ??? That lie haunts millions of women today.

Many men have found it convenient way to get them off the hook…

Women too, have found it a convenient way to get themselves off the hook….as they are convinced more and more to not become mothers .

Others have found it a convenient way to not have more kids in the ‘system’ for taxpayers to raise….

What if those children had lived?

What if the mother fell in love with her child the moment she held it?

What if that adoptive couple was so thrilled and gave the best education to that otherwise unwanted child who later could have developed the cure for cancer or other diseases?

What if that aborted child had instead been given human rights to save him or her from abortion and protect it til it could have protected itself and allowed the chance to live and grow up to adulthood and prove to society his or her worth in this world we live in…??

What IF God wanted that child to be born, regardless to how it was conceived?

What if God is now only holding back his righteous anger and judgement over all who have been seduced into having or defending abortion as a woman’s right ??

If abortion remains legal, “Why stop at pre-birth? What if the child is ugly or sick?If you could have aborted it a day earlier but now wish you had, why not be allowed to as they do in China?”….

What if your baby cries all the time and annoys you? Why cant you ‘post-natal abort?'[infanticide]

What if you have postpartum depression and smother your screaming infant?? Why is that chargeable murder and abortion not??

God forbid~ both are murder….Abortion is murder…no matter what IF?

If you say or think that God is Lord in your life and still you say you believe and follow Jesus, dont ever link him to condoning abortion.That is sick!

 Jesus died for all those aborted babies since they are , at least for the few moments of their existence ~ part of the world that God so loved! More over they are innocent~!

Back in 1978, I went through an Abortion Clinic to remove a baby that died in my womb but hadnt yet ejected and caused me to bleed for 3 weeks. My doctor said I needed a DNC as I was becoming ‘septic’…At the time , had I gone into the hospital for a DNC I would have had to remain in for 3 days and I had no baby sitter for my infant daughter.I was looking for a faster alternative to staying in a hospital overnite.

My cousin told me about a nearby abortion clinic that could to the comparable to getting the DNC in ust one day, as same surgery  and I could be back home that night with my daughter,so I did.

It seemed like the right alternative.

I was wrong! It was a glimpse of hell and judgement when I awoke in recovery alongside 16 other women who had abortions that day.

Hearing the moaning and cries and rants of the other women, made me feel like I was already in hell.

One woman kept cursing out the dead baby’s father…

Another cried that she changed her mind and that she didnt want to do it… but it was too late… we were all in recovery.. the procedures had been already done.

When the anesthesia wore off and I left there, I felt dirty and ashamed. I hadnt aborted a live baby, butfelt like I had.

I swore to God that if I ever needed a DNC again that I would never stoop so low as to go to an abortion clinic again.

I actually felt the spiritual evil that presides over abortion clinics!!

If you support the right to abortion, your very relationship to Jesus is wrong and you are wasting your time calling yourself a Christian, unless you repent of condoning such atrocities and follow Jesus rather than man.

A medically necessary abortion due to the mother’s physical capability to continue with a pregnancy that will kill her has always been dealt with medically, individually with DNC’s and there never was a need for Pro-Choice Roe V Wade legislation.

Back alley abortions [the old fashioned term] were done as a choice and not as medically needed, usually by whores or women who simply didnt want children, not that there were any reason beyond convenience that they could have given birth.

Roe v Wade was said to be supposed to be ending back alley abortions, but instead has committed genocide of the unborn for the last 30 years.

No matter how politically correct it has been ingrained into you or seduced you may be , Abortion is never God’s will and not the answer!

OBAMA MAY BE ALOT OF THINGS TO ALOT OF PEOPLE, MAY BE THE NICEST GUY YOU KNOW, BUT HIS STANCE ON ABORTION MAKE HIM THE WRONG PERSON FOR ANY BIBLE BELIEVING TRUTHFUL CHRISTIAN TO CONSIDER VOTING FOR~ OBAMA VOWED TO PRESERVE ROE V WADE AS WELL AS TO LOBBY FOR LATE TERM ABORTIONS!

DONT VOTE FOR OBAMA~ HE WILL BRING JUDGEMENT ON AMERICA SOONER THAN LATER~

AVE HURLEY ILLUSTRATIONS : Got started again after 50~


Initially, I wanted to gather together all the sites I have been listing my artwork on and put them together and see if I am spinning my wheels or if there is a way to get working more this year, as I really need to work and get my art business going….

I put in about 20+ hours daily into my artwork and frequently pull all nighters so I can keep creating and making new pieces of art and reworking some of my best pieces into framable prints, cards crafts and more.

Can this dream become a reality or am I just too late to start over???

I raised 5 children, survived and , lost everything I owned , ruined what credit I had , my health took many wrong turns, now I am trying to salvage what is left of my life and while being a Christian is first and knowing Jesus is what kept me sane and has enabled me to survive thus far, ~ trying to keep busy and be productive , although I have been physically disabled for years and am starting out at a great disadvantage healthwise and financially.

Nevertheless I kept trying and in 2009 I created a new artwork, consolidating all the main sites I list on and am getting more organized all the time and now have begun helping other artists to do the same.

I did start selling on Ebay in 2007  and have had some busy times  that enabled me to buy better printing equipment and to expand my capabilities in how to produce my art for sale… Yet now on ebay,  you have to be careful as things get slow there and sometimes your auction might get overlooked or not even viewed at all..I have had at least a dozen items listed and they weren’t getting ‘hits’ or views, so that too gets really frustrating…

Spending so much time online has stiffened my joints even more and making me more sedentary. This winter’s cold keeps me indoor, lost on line trying to keep working.

I took a break in Dec 2008  and went to York and painted some theatrical sets for a ballet, but never got the photos of the work so I could display them online ~ and I did the work free, but was supposed to be reimbursed for my travel expenses and materials  used- but the people I did it for, although they claimed they appreciated it, stalled by asking for  an invoice and promised to pay me later, so I went back up north, home. They never paid…….Later on still  saying while they loved the work, they just no longer acknowledged what they owed me for my expenses and ignored me after I asked for it and later in the presence of mutual friends denied owing me anything.. although the play charged $10 a head and sold out nightly… and they got backdrops they can now rent out to other studios and do~ go figure. I wanted to help them, so I did. I just assumed they were going to repay me what they owed but  not all people have the same values or conscience.Live and learn…

Next I went to visit my daughter in July 2008 in Phoenix. She had a baby girl and her husband was deployed to Iraq  but home on R&R for the birth which was wonderful. The weather was hot there so my joints weren’t as stiff and the house she had was lovely  but I needed to get back to Pa and left the end of the month. While she had room for me and I could have set up  a large studio/office area which would  have been ideal for getting more organized in this endeavour to be self sufficient in my 50’s, I still felt I needed to work  it out myself back in Pa.

I am glad to work online and feel so much  more productive despite the economy.  I have done alot of research and looked for what I needed on other websites about art and presentation and have built my own network, launched publically in June of 2009.

I have met many artists from around the world and we are collectively showing and selling our art right on my own network~!
