Recently, it was suggested to me that I might want to make some prints of my work, since it some markets, the economy is not supporting sales of original art at prices which reflect the actual costs or making it…so…am thinking about it. I do know that had I had some prints on hand of some of my pieces, they would have sold no problem. Also, size was an important factor. Some people loved certain pieces but the original was just too large. This leaves me with something else to consider; do I make prints at half-size? For example, my 24 by 24 lilies, should I make prints at 12 by 12 instead so that matted and framed they would still be smaller?
Has anyone gone through this process? Any ideas or suggestions? And while we are at it, if you skip through my gallery, which ones do you think would make marketable prints?
