Popularity is a fickle friend.
Often the popular images are simply the ones that have been uncovered by the public. Meanwhile there's a wealth of beautiful images waiting to be found, but if you'd like to see the artwork I've had fate smile on so far, look no further.
For popularity, I look at sales across the sites where I exhibit my work, not just the ones that have sold on this site.
