good morning campers! back again and still working on this pricing thing....I guess I have to do a little more research..ha ha alot!!! of research on how to price things.....and pricing things becomes a catch 22, cause on one hand you want people to be able to afford your artwork and on the other hand people value something that's not dirt cheap....so for instance, say there are 2 paintings.."there are 2 paintings"...ha ha...I crack myself up...anyway...the paintings both have a similar medium and similar subject matter, one is priced at $250. and the other is priced at $780.....(random prices).....so when people look at these paintings they say " hey, this one that costs $780. must be worth more this other similar thing which is priced at $250 cause it costs more..hence.. it must be better" ...by the way...hence is such a weird word...I wonder if someone was just sitting around back in the day, and said "hey let's make up a word that rhymes with fence and means therefore"....okay back to the momentous story problem (sound effects with momentous story problem....also did you know that mon-u-men-tous is spelled momentous....I had to look that one up....I guess I've been saying it wrong all these years....but I do think the way I say it sounds more massive than the way it's really spelled)
anyway.........so the problem is how to price so people put value in your work, but also (ya know my fingers sometimes get ahead of my brain, not real hard, and words i'm typing come out backwards... alot........for instance the word " also" comes out as laso...or in my case lasso, then I'm thinking "was I talking about cowboys and horses? and then I'm thinking "horses are so great".....and then I'm thinking "I remember walking down the road when I was in middle school and coming over a hill I heard this crazy sound, which I automatically thought, there is an elephant coming over the hill"....sure sounded like it....mind you ohio is not africa or india.....so of course you would come to the assumption that an elephant is coming over the hill....a surge of terror kinda gripped me for a minute....I mean what do you do if an elephant is coming toward you....run away? climb a tree? play dead? wave a red cape at it.....well I didn't have a red cape and I believe that's to anger bulls, soooo that one was out....so while I was pondering...well not pondering but racing around with my crazy thoughts, my neighbor and her horse came over the hill.....................I'm telling ya , the world I live in is way crazier than people see......where was I?)
oh yeah...also not bleed people dry....ick...well that's a gross description......how bout I don't want to take all the money someone has just so I can sell a painting....ok the other one was more to the point....ha ha point, bleed, still gross..............yeah I know I'm dragging my feet........ok back to my research......maybe I'll have an answer next week?
