Today we are releasing a feature that is guaranteed to increase the sales of any item on our site. Now you can upload up to 5 images to show close ups, brush strokes, signatures, frames, and anything else that gives the customer a better physical sense of your art.

2D and 3D artists can dramatically benefit from this feature. I can’t tell you all the many exciting ways you can use this, but one artist is already displaying images sent to him by his customers! Here he is proudly wearing his makau.

If you have alternative images, take a moment and upload them to your existing items. It only takes a minute. Even if you shoot some causal real world photos, if could make a huge difference in the customers decision.

Art can take a lot of time to make. What should one occupy one’s mind with during that time? Does an artist need to think about each brush stroke? Or does the creation of art become intuitive?

If art making becomes intuitive rather than thought-based — and to me that sounds appealing — what should become of word-based thought when one is working? Is it better to think about something else, to distract oneself with music, a book on CD?

This is something I’ve been thinking about while painting. What do you think about?

My name is Julia Jenkins and I am a casting producer for ABC families hit reality show ‘Wife Swap. We are currently casting for our fourth season and we are looking for FAMILIES THAT RESIDE IN HAWAII AND PARTICIPATE IN THE ARTS. This has been something we have wanted to feature for 3 years and we are very interested in finding that GREAT family!

Families that appear on the show receive $20,000 as a thank you. And if you refer a family that appears on the show you would receive $1000.

If you are unfamiliar with the show, Wife Swap is a fascinating story of what happens when two married couples see themselves and their spouses in a whole new light. Time Magazine calls Wife Swap “a riveting examination of family values.” The New York Post says, “It should be called ‘Life Swap’ because it’s not just the wives who learn something here. It’s the families.”

The premise of Wife Swap is simple: for seven days, two wives from two different families with very different values exchange husbands, children and lives (but not bedrooms) to discover what it’s like to live a different woman’s life.

Here at ‘Wife Swap’ we look for a two-parent home with at least one child between the ages of 6 and 17 living at home fulltime.

If you have a family and you are interested in applying for the show, or if you know of any great families that you would like to refer, please EMAIL: wifeswap.julia@gmail.com. Please provide details in your email!!

Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you!
