Arlee was talking about pricing artwork and directed us to this site "The painters keys". There is a very interesting article about pricing your work, and this little gem:

Ten Commandments of art pricing:
Thou shalt start out cheap.

Thou shalt publish thy prices.
Thou shalt raise thy prices regularly and a little.
Thou shalt not lower thy prices.
Thou shalt not have one price for Sam and another for Joe.
Thou shalt not price by talent or time taken, but by size.
Thou shalt not easily discount thy prices.
Thou shalt lay control on thy agents and dealers.
Thou shalt deal with those who will honour thee.
Thou shalt end up expensive.
(from Robert Genn - The Painters Keys)

I though it was an interesting way to look at pricing - Thanks Robert.
