dickhutchings I find it extremely relaxing and at the same time stimulating. Is that possible?

TerryCurley Everyone has different likes and dislikes. Everyone knows by now that I love to paint.

Very kind of you! But yeah, I certainly see why painting has the word 'pain' in it. I much prefer drawing, or thinking of the painting. But executing it is...a pain.

TerryCurley Yeah, that was my experience also.

leighann @Lashdown91 I have a friend who sells stuff on Etsy, and while she has good luck with it, she also complains of their fees. Evidently they charge a fee for every little thing.

If you are on Facebook, you can set up a separate page just for your art and direct people there.

TerryCurley I was using Esty but shut it down. I was getting much better response on Ebay.

Lashdown91 I've seen people who base their prices on time, as they set themselves an hourly rate. Well, this took about 3 months, of very sporadic work. No idea how many hours, and a lot of them were just unproductive deliberation. Can't really charge for being hesitant.
I'm in the UK, so will have to work on , but 200 -250 would probably be about right.
Do any of you use etsy? How good is it for selling paintings?

leighann Wow, that's awesome. Lots of cool details. Obviously the size of the painting should figure into your price too.
I was looking at another Instagram persons paintings just yesterday, not sure if they were oil or acrylic (I know much more time goes into oil), but most of his were at least $250. I will tag u on one of his paintings so you can check his website.

Check around Instagram and see what other people are charging for the same size oils (?)
