My mother owned some art from the 60s-80s, and she passed a little over four years ago; since then, it has been in my spare closet. I would like to sell it, if possible, because I believe some of the work is valuable, but the closed art market makes that impossible to assess. I understand that to sell art, the broker/seller/?? will take a percentage of a sale, which is fine. But I've asked around (here in Portland, ME) and I haven't received a reference for someone who can help me with that. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
I've decided to try selling some of my art work, however I have no idea how to go about valuing my art work. I'm also not sure of the best place to sell it or how to market it. [more inside]
Someone contacted me about using an image (an inked line drawing, which was part of a series of process scans of a more completed and colored, image), they found on my blog. She would like to use this particular image largely as-is in her new business cards. She also wants to know how much I would charge to create a logo for her new business based on the line drawing.
