Start local, and then expand.
This is a piece of advice I offer clients who are trying to build an audience for their art. It's much easier to sell your art in an area where you already have connections.
The problem is that this solution doesn't always work for artists who live in rural areas.
When you live in a rural area, is your best bet to expand your online following?
I'd love to hear from rural artists who have faced this dilemma.
