This group is for Featuring FFA Artists and the DSC FFA Artists Blog Trains Only!
We will use this group for group discussions about our features on the blog.
The blog for this project is specifically to help promote FAA and the artists involved.
NOTE: When this project first started, the requirements to participate were different and have now been revised.
You are no longer required to give anything away, the only rules are to add a link to the blog where the Artists Featured Work
will reside. The features will change and rotate weekly, and the blog train will leave the depot monthly.
Please read the threads in our discussion area for all the info and join to participate and to ask questions.

What's Your Story?
I am very amazed at how I overlooked using my digital camera, and my love for visual arts and media, as a tool for selling or earning a living. I have seen so many visual artists display their awesome works all over the internet for some time now, and while creating digital art myself, I was so wrapped up in other forms of "marketing", I completely did not see the forest for the trees.
One day a bell rang while I was creating yet another fansite for a close friend. While my experience at this form of art is not nearly at the level of some, it ain't bad, as one would say ;)
To make a longer story short, I began researching, and experimenting with different platforms, and ideas to sell my own works. Some of those platforms are fabulous, while some are so so, and others still, are just not worth the time (and money) to get someone like me, and countless others started. You see in this world today, the majority are just struggling to stay afloat. I for one certainly do not have any "extra" cash to invest in buying store software or hosting, (I bought hosting for 8 years to support my music and other projects, but that became far too costly), nor can I afford to pay a website platform aka marketplace, to add my shop items, and pay for each listing upfront, regardless of a sale or not (Etsy, Ebay).
I will not bash any platform, but some are just better than others. This is one reason, while I am still experimenting with platforms, and most likely always will, you can and will currently find art and other digital items I have available in several places.

Cynthia Lennon, the first wife of Beatles star John Lennon, died today after a battle with cancer.
Julian Lennon, was at her side when she passed away at home in Mallorca, Spain. She was 75.
Cynthia Powell was born in England, where she developed a passion for art and studied at the Liverpool College of Art.
During her studies there, she met John Lennon. They were married in August 1962.
Cynthia and John had a son, Julian, now 51.
Cynthia exhibited her art in various places over the years and in 1995, recorded a cover of “Those Were The Days.”
Cynthia will be greatly missed. Seen in this photo, with my friend May Pang, who was also one of Cynthia's best friends.
A memorial page has been set up here:
