Just a general question and wanted to get some opinions from fellow artists. How often do you give yourself a raise? I am aware that different people have different ways of pricing their work but I’m specifically asking about people who charge per sq inch. Say as an artist I start out at 2.00/sq inch, I feel like I’m progressing as a painter at an exponential rate, so what is a general rule of thumb for increasing the price of my work without letting my ego get in the way?
Also I have a couple older works hanging around that I feel may sell as soon as I start putting my work out on the market (I haven’t really sold anything yet) but say they do sell... should I price them at my current rate or as a beginner artist at 2.00/ sq inch
