Keep a mini portfolio in your car.
You never know when opportunities will come. I like to keep some promotional materials in the car with me. I use Excel or my Working Artist software to make a gallery sheet of images with title,medium, size and price of 10 or so paintings. I make a few brochures on my home computer, and a bio/statement/brief resume/business cards and list of galleries where I show my work. I put all of these in a manilla envelope and keep it in the trunk of my car.
I also use a three ring binder with the office supply clear inserts in it. I put small watercolor paintings and studies in oils and acrylics, back to back in the binder. I use different binders fordifferent price ranges, usually 50.00 paintings in one and 100.00 paintings in another. Just a few at a time, so that interested people can flip through them. I take these with me and use them at various opportunities.
I have sold quite a few paintings this way, putting the binders out in places where I am painting with lots of people coming and going.
You just never know when opportunities will come along and it's good to be ready.
