Etsy Store.

Still figuring out the workings of it and pricing but my Etsy store is now open for business.  I'm now facing the new dilemma of how do I price my work?  The current batch of paintings are only 3 inches square which doesn't seem like a lot of bang for your buck.  On the pother hand I know the work and effeort that's gone into making them the best I can.  Guess all I can do is proote it best I can and see what sells, or doesn't and adjust accordingly.

  2. The important thing is to do it because you enjoy it. If they don't sell, that's ok. I'm sure they will though. Try ebay as well. I've had good luck there. Don't be afraid to start your auction at $9.99. If people like your paintings they will bid up the price. Once you're known there and popular, the prices you garner begin to escalate. Google Carol Marine. She paints one a day oils of still lifes. 6"x6". Been doing it a while now. She starts the price at $100 and sells almost every painting due to her popularity now :-) I like your work...you should have no problems selling them :-) Decorators love bird paintings and drawings...
