I always love it when somebody tackles the age-outdated question. I think there is an element of chance to any painting too. Something about being in the right place at the right time with the best composition to strike a twine with the populace. Totally uneducated in art, she would have remained an obscure primitive artist painting for her personal amusement if it had not been the top of a World War and the folks abruptly wanted to see “again to an easier way of life” kind of items. Sometimes there is no knowing what the public desires and you need to paint what you want it doesn’t matter what.
When I began Oil Painting, I by no means thought I would worth my art work. For example, I sold 9×12 oil landscapes (framed) on the gallery in the early 2000s for round $900. Today, selling alone, I’m really fortunate to get $four hundred framed. Why am I not working with galleries?
I instantly signed with top-of-the-line galleries in Los Angeles, Lisa Dubins, and he or she educated me to the business facet of the business. Though my first paintings offered very cheaply, she made incremental will increase as my reputation grew. I’ve not increased my costs in a long time and the following are the prices and sizes I most often paint. When working with galleries, keep in mind that every gallery sells in a price range… i.e galleries in well know arts districts sell larger priced artwork.
