|New pricelist =)
||[Nov. 18th, 2003|12:57 pm]
To keep up with demand, I have had to raise my commission prices. I've also decided to pretty much only take on commissioned pieces that fit in with my normal style and genre of painting. |
My new pricelist:
Anybody who is already on my commission waiting list of course is not subject to the new pricelist =) These prices will only go into effect for new pieces commissioned starting today!
OK - back to painting =)
Good for you! And those are perfectly good prices too! (I better get that photo to you then :-0 I have been feverishly searching and I found all her photos but that set I want!).
Hehe - no worries - you are still elegible for the price I quoted you ;)
Bless you sweet strangeling =)
Damn grrlie. I hope to get to that point one day.
NICE ;) Great to be in demand, huh? =) Wheee.

Oh my GOD! What are you painting now? I want it! I am soooo bidding on it!
Ah, sorry - this one is a commissioned piece, lol.
Part of it is that I'm trying to limit the number of commissions I accept (I need more time for my own original paintings and for all of the other projects I've got my hands in). Generally whenever I start getting more commissions than I can deal with, I up my prices and then it evens out.
Man, holidays are killer! I had people ordering Christmas present commissions as far back as August. Hehe, if I was smart, I would have raised my pricelist before the holiday rush ;)
Just out of curiosity, how many commission do you get a year on average?
Oh my - I have no idea, lol. I've done anywhere from 2 to 20 a month. Sometimes a person might commission me for several pieces at a time, and then I'll stop taking them for awhile and put people on a waiting list. I'd really like to keep it down to maybe one a week, so it doesn't eat into my "regular painting" too much. Generally when I start getting too many requests, I'll raise up my prices to lower the amount of total pieces I need to do. Also, when my eBay auction end prices start to sometimes exceed the price I would normally charge for a commissioned piece, lol, that's usually a sign!

I know this is a commissioned piece, but will we get to see it once it's finished? It looks pretty amazing, from what I can see from the web cam.
Hi Valerie! Yep! I'll post the finished piece here in my journal =)
Wow! Do you have another job or are you able to just support yourself on painting? I wish I could just sell my photographs and not have to go to a job like how I have. I wish ppl would connect to my work as well as they seem to with you :).
Oh no, Just my artwork =) I'm lucky to have kaokame
as a good house-husband who does all of the cleaning and housework too, so I just get to concentrate on my work and supporting us, lol. I first started selling my artwork professionally when I was eighteen, and then after I graduated from college I quit my "day job" and I've been full time for the last couple of years. I'm very thankful that I'm able to do what I love for a living! I love being self-employed - I hate having a regulated schedule of any sort, so this works well for me. Since I mostly sell my work online, it has enabled me to live wherever I like, which is why we moved here to Celebration, Florida!
I would love to be able to do that too. You are very lucky :).
I'm going to add you onto my friends list! You seem really cool - and I love your photograhy! You're also in the EGL community I belong to! =)
Hehe, that way you'll get to see all of my "friends only" posts ;)
Yay! I already added you too :).
