I just got an offer to buy out all my canvas pieces.. all 23 of them. I have no idea what this buyer intends but I get the impression its for resale. I tend to sell on the very inexpensive side…Continue

The ultimate easel / table?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Dalton James May 6. 1 Reply

This might not be the perfect place to post this... but - can't hurt. I need to either acquire or build the ultimate large-canvas-apparatus. A typical easel won't do it. So here my requirements, and…Continue

"For what it's worth, I think you may be confusing the 'artist booth fee' with the 'commercial booth fee'. I will attach a link for you but the artist booth is $750. If this show is close to you, might be worth a…"

"Main Street Fort Worth is not $800.. (this is pulled from their site): Commercial space costs are $8,000 for a 10′ x 10′ booth, $15,000 for a 10′ x 20′ booth and $25,000 for a 20′ x 20′ booth.  Thats the…"

"I wasn't going to raise the price on this buyer, that was already set in stone. I meant after i did this, if I did this. I'd pay for a serious artist review... i.e. someone that does successfully take a look at my current work, evaluate…"

"Remember lots of businesses rise and fall every day and could want a lot of themed art for a setting: a restaurant, hotel, bar, etc.your work looks commercially accessible."

Melissa Hardison replied to Rick Wallace's discussion sell everything in shot?
"The only concern is if you believe the price you offered is too low. But you can’t retroactively raise it for this buyer, you can just decline the deal. You already sell your work for such a low price - $2500 may be fair once you subtract your…"

Sue Kroll replied to Rick Wallace's discussion sell everything in shot?
"You need to inform the buyer that you own the copyrights to all your paintings and that means they cannot copy your work. HOWEVER, you can sell them the copyrights along with the art (for an extra fee) and then they can do anything with it."

Greg Little replied to Rick Wallace's discussion sell everything in shot?
"You are painting with the intention of selling your work and have decided on a price. If someone local wants to meet your price and pay cash there is obviously no scam involved and you are getting exactly what you wanted. You cannot go back and…"

"It's a hobby - but I want it to be a hobby without losing money, or much money. The first set of canvases was donated to me by a retired local mystery artist, but I have since bought some wholesale (about $12 per 30x40 from…"

Loc Tran replied to Rick Wallace's discussion sell everything in shot?
"It seems to me that you are torn between creating/selling art as a hobby vs. selling art as a business. Is that your hesitation? I think I previously read that you came upon the canvasses for free? And from a hobby perspective, it's a $2500…"

"Would have been the first thing I checked. Now you have your answer. Do you want  your work mass produced? Instead charge them $50,000 a piece for unlimited license. "

Stacia Miller replied to Rick Wallace's discussion sell everything in shot?
"If it’s for resale, ask for their tax ID number. At least in Texas, that is what I do. If they are legit, they will have one, and then you don’t need to charge them tax."

Mindy Colton replied to Rick Wallace's discussion sell everything in shot?
"If it is local and cash, and you are fine with the price. I would do it. I did that once with a local gallery who sold my small sculptures. He was selling 3-4 a month, got tired of writing checks all the time to many of us, so he bought my entire…"
