Affordable Tropical Beach Themed Oil Paintings

Affordable Tropical Beach Themed Oil Paintings available from Lloyd Dobson Artist with free shipping to lower US 48 and Canada. Lloyd’s paintings hang in hundreds of homes, businesses and offices throughout the US, Canada, the UK, Germany, and Switzerland.

Born in Kansas City, Missouri and raised in Independence, Missouri. Lloyd studied art in high school and college where he was blessed to win numerous art awards and ribbons. In Missouri he studied under the late artist Andrew Thoman.

In college was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers and went to the west coast to their rookie training camp. In his second year of playing minor league baseball he tore ligaments in his leg and being on crutches resumed his passion for painting. In California Lloyd studied under California artist Bert Carter.

Lloyd’s work is enjoyed in private collections throughout the world with some of the more notable collectors being Art Linkletter, Debbie Reynolds, and Debbie Reynold’s mother.

If you have decided that you want your home to have a tropical feel, you can paint the walls in green, maybe paint the ceiling in blue or even go out of your way to paint a mirage on the wall.

Now you can top it off with a few original tropical beach theme oil paintings that will reflect maybe some palm trees and the beach. Or anything that you think best ties in with your tropical beach theme.

Art is infinite and there are no limitations to the imagination, so you will have no problem finding what you are looking for.

You can go about this another way though, the aforementioned plan was to have the walls and the rest of the house decorated first. Then find the paintings that match, but that does not have to be the case. If you visit somewhere and see gorgeous oil paintings that just simply catch your eyes, then you can bring them home and decorate your house to match those paintings and bring it all together.

When your home is decorated to suit you, you will see that you are a lot more comfortable in it, despite whatever your circumstances may be. The house will simply shine!

Buy oil paintings that you love to get your home sparkle with their variations and style while making your home decor irresistible to you and appreciated by your visitors.

Here are a couple examples of Lloyd Dobson Artist from the Siesta Key – Sarasota area of Florida.






You can also find Lloyd’s beach themed oil paintings at the Siesta Key Farmers Market located in the Village of Siesta Key every Sunday from 9am to 1pm. Lloyd ships FREE to the lower US 48 and Canada.


Lloyd Dobson “Author And Artist”

1_-_BOOK_COVER Lloyd Dobson “The Author & Artist” – Sounds Kinda Nice, Right? The title of my new book is “How To Get Page #1 In Search Engines” and is now available on Amazon as a Kindle eBook at $3.99, a Paperback at $12.99 and soon to be released an audible book at $9.99.

A few years ago I was paying Google (PPC aka Paid Per Click) anywhere from $100 to $500 per month to rank on their #1 page to drive traffic and buyers to my oil paintings. After several  months of this type of advertising I began researching why the 10 listings through the center were appearing without paying Google for those positions and found the answer.

How To Use Google To Drive Traffic To Your Business. Okay you are now in business and need traffic or you have been in business for awhile and need traffic. With today’s technology such as our smart phones, if you do not have a presence on the Internet, you are losing business to your competitors. Why? Because they are utilizing this strategy to help drive traffic and buyers.

1_-_Book_-_Google_MattersPeople now days are going to Google Search to find a solution to their wants or needs. So does it not make good sense to be in front of what they are searching for? Answer! definitely yes, if you are serious about making a profit with your business.

So how do you get on Google’s first page? That ranking requires some knowledge and application of that knowledge. However it is not that complicated, if you are consistent with positioning your business on that first page.

Basically, Google doesn’t believe that you exist. On the off chance that Google doesn’t believe you, you’re not going to rank on first page SERPs. You’ll be lost in the midst of a huge number of others who’re attempting to work their way to the top. In this way, the main genuine directing standard of SEO is trust. When you have Google’s trust, you’ll reliably rank profoundly. When you do not have its trust, you’ll be lost in a wretched ocean of low-positioning site pages. What’s more, nobody needs that.

1 - Book SEO - Siesta Key Florida Artist - PAINT REVISEDFrom its earliest days, Google’s core search algorithm offered the most relevant and most organic search results quickly and accurately on a  simple site with an iconic logo that has now become synonymous with the search giant’s business. Searching amidst the world’s vast data, Google cleverly cataloged and categorized pages using its PageRank formula,  which assessed the quantity and power of links to any given web page.

Have you at any point thought about how you could get on the main page of the web search tools like Google, Bing, and Yahoo? It doesn’t make a difference what sort of business you are involved with. On the web or a brick and mortar business. The end goal for you is to remain in business, and with that said you require TRAFFIC and BUYERS. The condition for progress has an exceptionally straight forward equation: TRAFFIC + CONVERSIONS = SUCCESS. Period!

Well after a few years of trial and error I have figured out how to position myself on Google’s Page #1 driving hundreds of customers to my website or market events to purchase my oil paintings. I have collectors throughout the US, Canada, the UK, Germany and Switzerland. As the Siesta Key Farmers Market manager I have also applied the same strategies to rank many of our vendors.

SKFM_-_Jeanne_HeereI made a decision recently to share how I accomplish my presence on the Internet by writing a book titled: “How To Get Page #1 In Search Engines” The book is now available on Amazon as a Kindle eBook at $3.99,  a paperback book at $12.99 and an audible book will soon be released on Amazon.
