Find out about local art fairs, (probably a ton of them in Chicago). Once you get a few paintings under your belt, join one of these, and have a
booth or area to sell your work. Don't get discouraged if you don't sell... Your REAL objective is to meet the gallery owners that constantly go
to these looking for their next flavor of the month. The hope is that one spots you, likes the work, and then wants you to do a gallery showing
(where you can really rake in the dough, if you sell a few pieces, with a percentage going to the gallery of course).
This is kind of hard to do in my little market for me, but in Chicago, this should be a LOT easier....
