Back to the OP. Speaking of boxes, have you considered applying your skill to objects, rather than art pieces? There are companies that sell quality boxes, unfinished and ready for your carving and painting. I’d be much more likely to purchase a beautiful item like that than something to hang on my wall.

Want a niche that might take off on a site like Etsy or Thumbtack? Pet urns. You can buy a plain unfinished wooden pet urn online and have the buyer send you a picture of their pet they’d like you to carve and paint on it. Another possibility — gift boxes. You can buy plain, unfinished wooden wine boxes and adorn them with all sorts of your work. Look for sites selling unfinished wooden boxes and see all of the different products they offer. The possibilities are really endless. Just use your imagination.
