People versus Landscapes

After a review of all the paintings I have sold, I noticed that the majority were landscapes, florals, or animals. Paintings with people in them did not sell very well. Recently I signed up for a photography site and put up 3 landscape photos and 2 people ones. The 3 landscapes immediately got several likes, while the people ones got none. I am not sure what this means.

Do people in general prefer landscapes to humans? Or is it me -- my paintings and photos of landscapes are better than those of people? In either case, why?

  1. I prefer people! And your people are GREAT! And, I actually prefer abstracts to landscapes. Not that I don't appreciate nature. I do. But, to me, very few if any landscapes move me? I guess that is strange, because I am moved by some abstracts. Go figure? ;op
