Pricing Artwork by the Inch

how much? written on a blue tag


When I first started to show and sell my work my pricing was just all over the map! I scrambled to make sense of putting a dollar value on my art and then making sure that the prices made sense as the work scaled up and down in size.

Create Like a Child: Back to Basics

Picture making by children
