I've always wanted to be able to paint so over the last year I've taken a couple of oil painting courses. It seems now that I can paint well enough that people are asking about buying my work and one person wants to try to get me into galleries he knows. Wow!
That's where I get stuck. How on earth do I come up with a price? Do I ask them to make me an offer? Are there resources for this kind of thing? Has anyone on here done this? What did you charge?

A dead relative left me a James Rosenquist
signed print or poster. I would like to sell it. I would not like to deal with selling it. What's the easiest way to get something reasonable for it, as I have no idea of what the market value is. Contact Christie's or Southeby's? Are there agents who will deal with the whole process for a commission?

[Comic book art filter] I did a "pin up" image to be included in a fellow artist's graphic novel. He asked me to do it, I did it gratis, he liked it and put it in the book. I can sell the original art, right? And keep all
the proceeds? [more inside]

I have over 1,000 copies of several PC videogame CD-ROMs. The games are widely distributed/available, so the discs probably don't have any value to gamers. What can I do with them beside give them away? Creative or crafty ideas welcome. Also, not against making a little money if it's possible. [more inside]

Is there a better place than ebay for selling animation art? (cels, lobby cards, some reproductions) It's a mixed bag - some disney, some warner bros - probably about 10 pieces total. I've seen a few places that will act as middlemen, but I'm not familiar with any of them, so I'm not sure what the best course of action is.

My dad makes really amazing wooden bowls on his lathe. He wants to sell them but there are a few issues and questions:
If he sells them on the internet, where? Any one know of higher-end websites that sell quality art?
His bowls have been appraised and would go for 100-200$.
Also, is there a way to sell bowls at a store even accross the country? My dad lives in a fairly rural part of Massachussetts, and doesnt really have the resources to travel around.
Any one have suggestions, ideas, etc of how to help my dad? He is very unhappy in his current job and i really believe he is a true artist. Thank you!!

My father-in-law is an artist in Japan who has had pretty decent success selling traditional and non-traditional woodcarvings. (His work can be found here

I've been experimenting with various photographic processes for a few years now, and would like to begin selling prints of my work. Does anyone have experience creating their own giclee prints, or recommendations for a printer that they've worked with? (more inside, naturally) [more inside]
