Is it by an artist who has sold previous work?

Is this artist represented by any galleries?

@pec1216: Hmmm… not sure then. Maybe look on Etsy for similar sized paintings and see what they go for?

If it’s an established artist – I could see it going for $500-$1000.

Since it’s a friend – I’d say $100-$250 – ($250 was my first ‘gut’ feeling).

@pec1216: I honestly think $100 for 11×14 would be a steal!  I’d be inclined to do $200 … but, let your friend tell you how much!  Don’t guess for him/her!

@pec1216: btw, is it a red canvas?  or is it paint on canvas (the background)

I don’t think I would pay $100, sorry though.

Anything with a high “I could paint that factor” will sell for less unless the person is an established artist.  I’ve seen stuff like that for sale for 50$ at a gallery/restaurant by me. I assume you mean 11″X14″, not 11’X14′?

If it was a friend who painted it and she wasn’t asking a price, I would probably give her about $150. I’m just thinking if I went to homegoods or a similiar store with discounted paintings I would have to spend at least that.

@pec1216: Wow she’s really talented!  I’d definitely tell her to look around Etsy and see what other artists are listing their work for.

My dad owns a customer framing gallery and sometimes he will sell local artists paintings in there. i think 100-250 is a good price range.
