I need your assistance and feedback. Having searched through many sites I am now wondering whether I should concentrate on my own name more than On A Whimsey? As a viewer or buyer do you prefer to equate to the shop or the personal touch of the name of the artist?
It is sometimes nice to be able to relate to the artist themselves, get a feel for them, find out their likes and dislikes. Imagine going into a shop. Would you prefer to be dealt with by an automated machine or by a shop assistant/shop owner who actually wants to chat with you, is interested in you so that they might help you find what you want. I know which I would prefer!
My banner has already been altered to show my real name whilst underneath I still use the On A Whimsey description as can be seen if you look at the picture below or follow the link provided.
‘On A Whimsey's Art in the Wax by Pat O'Neill’
Apparently, this will help with Meta tags which I am trying to understand at the moment!
Certainly on my Facebook I am known as Pat O’Neill and have now placed a picture of yours truly rather than the encaustic image which makes it all that more personal.
So do you want to see automated imagery or the personal touch?
By the way, I had good reason to be really happy in this photo since it was taken just before our son’s wedding last summer. It was really hot which is why there is a glow on the skin!
