I've been studying my price points this week, seeing at what prices I get sales. It seems that between $20 and $30 is where my collectors want paintings. After talking it over with my art buddy, I will be listing the price on each painting where I think it should be, and where I think it will sell. (Recession Price.) My art buddy also suggests that I get a "real job" and maybe put the painting career on hold for awhile. (Since I'm barely covering expenses at this price point.)
I wonder if anyone out there knows of a work-at-home situation that isn't a scam?
Please send an email if you know of a legitimate online, work-at-home job situation. Thanks!
Welcome to my daily painting blog. Here I'll post my efforts to paint one small painting a day, with a little wiggle room by saying five per week. I work primarily in oils these days, but also love my watercolors. I hope you enjoy my work, and as always, your comments are welcome.
