I've been wanting to paint larger canvases and did this the other day. It is 12 x 24 x 2" I am wondering how to sell it. If I should put it on eBay or Etsy or maybe keep it:) One of the reasons I don't do large is because the shipping costs are so high here in Canada. This would cost about $24 to send. The canvas support is also expensive and adds to the cost. So do I put a price of $125?($150 including shipping) It is so hard to figure out what to charge. Is it worth what someone will pay for it or what it cost me to make it plus time and fees to the selling venue? I tend to put lower prices on my art because I want to sell it. It is a conundrum. If it was to sell in a gallery, the gallery takes 50% that's one reason the prices are so much higher in those venues. What is your take on pricing?
