McGraw Parking Lot Weeds Photograph #43
Karen Kitchel's painting of Parking Lot #9
I saw Karen Kitchel's paintings on Artnet.com. I was checking my stats and her paintings showed up in the same search as my photographs. I like her painting, I'd buy it. But would I pay $4,800 for it at the Robischon Gallery?
I do not understand pricing in the art world. I don't get it for paintings and I don't get it for photography. With photography, I can at least estimate my framing costs when putting a price on a photo. For an 18x18in of the photograph on the left, I'd probably charge between $300 and $400. Karen's painting the same size is $4,800.
One-of-a-kind / Unlimited equal reproductions.
All of my future photographs will be numbered runs of 5 or 10. My framing will be nice, too, and reasonably priced.
And I'm just going to take good photographs from now on. Deal?
