For a large piece of art such as this, the price is actually quite reasonable - and with Horchow's periodic 25-30% off sales, it's even better. (subscribe to their e-mailing list for notifications)

Otherwise, you may be better off going to your local art fairs or shopping eBay to find something else you enjoy.

Paintings by Kirsten Elizabeth Gilmore
As a painter, I would also add "etsy" as a source for less expensive, original abstracts in whatever colors you want. Most paintings there would come directly from artists without the gallery markup. Horchow's prices are fair if you consider the gallery is taking a substantial cut of the profits because they do the selling and advertising. They are lending their name and reputation which is part of what you pay for.

On a site like etsy, you would likely find this size painting (36X36) in the $250-450 price range. (The online artist-direct prices are fair--materials alone to make a 36X36 painting would run the artist at least $60-$75 if using high quality canvases, paints, and varnish, so that leaves less than $200 profit for at least two full days worth of work.)

FRAMING: Expect to pay $50-60 for a nicer frame this size online or in a craft store plus about $5 for framing hardware, if framing yourself. This cost would be greater, if using a framer.

SHIPPING: Shipping for a painting this size would likely run about $50 for ground shipping, substantially more for expedited shipping. Some artists take the canvas off of the stretcher bars and mail it in a tube, but I wouldn't suggest that is the safest way to ship art. Also, it would mean you would have to pay to have it re-stretched--which is likely more than the savings in shipping would be. Some people give "free" shipping, but that usually means they raise the price by the real shipping amount, so you would be paying for it either way.

I hope this information helped. I paint abstracts, so I've had to do recent research into pricing, shipping, framing, and such.

The texture of this painting is fantastic, and the cloud-like brush strokes make me feel like I'm being pulled into a dreamlike world. Dimensions: 57.75"H x 57.75"W x 2.25"D
