Looking for a Gallery

I am really wanting to find a local gallery to represent my art, but so far have not had much luck.  I actually had one gallery owner look over my pieces, and actually say that he would put them in his gallery if I produced more animal art, which he said was one of the strongest selling.  So I went home and produced four of my best animal paintings, he looked at them and apologized, saying that he had filled the spot in the meantime while I was making those, and to check back in a few months. At first I was very irritated that I spent so much time preparing paintings specifically for him (see the paintings below) and he didn’t end up putting them in his gallery  but then I realized that I thoroughly enjoyed doing them, and had learned that I had a knack for painting animals, which I didn’t realize I had before that, so I really wasn’t too upset.

Now though, the issue remains that I still don’t have gallery representation.  I can keep trying to sell online, but honestly, a gallery is an artist’s best bet for getting sales.  So, after the artwalk on April 13, I am going to start really pursuing that gallery representation.
