How to scale prices for my paintings

My first MeFi question, so please be be nice!
I'm an artist, I price my paintings by the square inch, furthermore, prices are scaled by cost per unit.
Example: the smallest size work is 5"x5" and retails for $xxx, cost per unit = 10. The largest 60x60, retails $xx,xxx, cpu = 3.
All the rest of the sizes inbetween are priced accordingly.
What is the term for this price scale? (yeah "Price Gouger" "Swindler's List" ha ha! I need the real term, folks)
For the big points & prizes, how do I use the scale to increase next year's prices by a (small) percentage?
