Jay is a painter

As an artist it is often hard to figure out the best way to be seen.i mean I can always post wheat paste on walls but then I have to stay I the shadows and honestly I'm vain. I want to hear people say "wow, I love your style." I make so much work that it needs an audience more then my website or social media. I'm just not sure how to keep on the minds of strangers.
