I have been painting for many years and one of the hardest things for me to perfect is pricing. I can spend as much time pricing a piece as I have spent creating it. I am constantly looking for articles and trying to find a logical and consistent way to price my artwork. I recently found a way that is both and I am comfortable with. I am price work by the square inch. Has anyone used this method? What are your thoughts?

We have had some other inquiries on this and I think we can have a focused discussion on this. I think it is very hard for anyone to price their work, I am hoping CNYArtists can lend a hand in this. Right now we are trying to arrange the new space in Shoppingtown  thank you for bringing this up. Peter
I have not priced much, as I never offered items for sale. However, I am in a turning club which has members that build items to sell. Club as a show and tell table at monthly meetings. Members are encouraged to bring samples of thier work to display at meeting and give a short talk on piece (items for sale generally have artist asking price). Good way compare your work and prices. 
Mari, I have worked on a 4" x 6" etching for 3 months and then sometimes a very large piece will pull together quickly.  I suggest going to Art/Craft  Festivals this summer and galleries in Buffalo, Rochester and Skaneateles to compare and contrast the quality of your paintings to what is out there to get an idea of pricing. Much of a pieces value, along with size and time calculated is subjective.  If you do it by the square inch, your truley most successful pieces (you KNOW which ones they are :) )  will have the same price as your LEAST successful ones (You know which ones those are too! :) )  You will see some pricing ideas at the Art on the Porches event.  Have you requested an application to participate in the Show yet?  Please email me at elizabethandrewsstudio@gmail for me to forward you one if you hav'nt yet.  Peter is coming , so is Izzy Duggar and John Lathrop.

Pricing - there are all sorts of pricing - cost plus, value pricing, premium pricing. And then there are pricing strategies skimming, milking, defensive, etc etc. When it comes to pricing art I believe one has to start with the following -  the price is determined by what price  the seller is willing to sell and the buyer is willing to pay to buy. I don't believe that artists in many cases can price their artwork - they are too close to it. Having said all that

I believe that we can help Mari and many other artists sell more of their work and also increase their prices by employing specific marketing and merchandising strategies. That is one of the values and skill sets I am trying to bring to the table.
