Marilyn, take a look under Blogs up top where you see Home, Magazines, Blogs, Forums ... Look for the one labeled The Artist's Life by Lori Woodward and look for her article A Simple Formula for Pricing Artwork. That should give you a good place to start.

Hope that helps.

I was really struggling with pricing my work until I read Lori’s excellent article. I set up a formula for my pieces, and it really helps. Excellent advice!

I've been experimenting with prices by selling a few paintings locally via

craigslist.   No shipping needed which is nice.  It also draws local attention to

my web blog which I mention in the postings.
