so i was in this mad scramble to create enough paintings for a small gallery space and i only had like a week. Out of this frenzy came these two paintings(and several others). The bluish-green one is my profile and rhe reddish-orange one is my mother's profile. They're both done in acrylic.

This one is called "Hair" cause for some strange reason it reminded me of the musical hair

This one is "Flare"

How much do you think they're worth? I never know how much to sell stuff for.
Well thanks a ton for looking.

LOVELY... I'm working on a self portrait, and my first thought was to use my profile... I love what you've done.

No idea what to price them for... It depends on your audience I think. I've seen stuff priced for thousands that I wouldn't pay tens for... and vice versa... I guess it's just all relative. Smiley

When I am pricing out my art, I keep track of all expenses. I add up the costs of the canvas and an estimate of materials such as paints. I then add in my time at a set hourly wage. Cost per hour depends on the complexity of the work done. Then I take that total and add a percentage on to reach my selling price. You want to take into account your experience in the medium and our previous exposue (like gallery shows).

Also, never forget that fellow artists and objective (non-artsy) people are invaluable resources. Good luck!
