Dancing Scabiosa, Butterfly Blue (original)
This painting is part of my Pay What You Can category!
Basic notes on the Pay What You Can method:
- For your reference, four price tiers are suggested.
- The bare minimum that I can accept is the cost of materials; this price is listed as “Tier 1”.
- Any additional amount that you are able to pay above Tier 1 is very much appreciated and will go towards my business costs and my time. Thank you!
The cost of materials for this painting is: $175.00
The full retail price of this painting is: $450.00
I started this painting sitting cross-legged in my garden, observing these wonderful flowers that appear to dance in the breeze. When I had to composition set up, I took it into my studio to finish. I find it can be easier to see the actual artwork when the subject isn't around to refer to.

- Tier 1 = the cost of materials. This is the bare minimum I can accept for a sale. These are the costs I’ve already paid to frame the artwork and the cost of the art materials used.
- Tier 2 = the cost of materials + the cost of business. A sale of art at this tier will help me cover the costs of having a business. Some of my business costs include: studio rent, website costs, art festival fees, internet and phone, office supplies, etc.
- Tier 3 = the cost of materials + the cost of business + an amount for labor. If you can pay for an artwork at this tier, you will be paying me for my time to create the artwork.
- Tier 4 = the retail price. A sale of art at this tier means I can make a profit! Any profit I make goes into improving my art business. Some improvements I’d love to make include: upgrades to the studio gallery lighting, upgrades to my art festival tent, and improving my skills through practice and classes.
