How do I determine the price of a painting?
Pricing is generally based upon square inches. For instance:
- 12 x12 144 sq in .48 $300
- 16 x 20 320 sq in .57 $500
- 15 x 36 540 sq in .54 $1000
Most artwork I create ranges from .40 - .60 cents a square inch. There's no mystery to this most reasonable base cost for an original work of art.
Pricing varies though, not just by size. Some artwork is just more complicated, takes more time and should be more valuable.
Demand will create increases because I can only create one original work of art at a time. Original art is priced quite differently than prints for instance. Art goes up in value over time. Rarely does it go down.
Every painting I sell pushes the value of all of my art up.
Paintings sold just a few years back for $200 now go for $500 and up. Pretty wise investment for those collectors I'd say.
Purchasing is easy
Purchases may be made through PayPal. I have set nominal tax and shipping rates based upon distances. Original works of art are hand packed by me in boxes
designed to get your art safely to you.
All artworks come complete with mounting hardware and I ship within the continental United States. For shipping to Hawaii and Alaska, please email me regarding shipping costs. Generally it takes me a 2 - 3 days to pack and prepare a work of art for shipping. It will be worth the wait.
*Paintings marked with an arterisk (*), also say PRINT AVAILABLE. Go to the Fine Art Prints page where you may purchase these images at dramatically reduced prices. All prints are digital, are produced on stretched canvas and are not framed. These are beautiful prints you'll be proud to hang in your home or give as a gift.
