"Art is a verb." Yes, absolutely.

The amount of time taken to create something is irrelevant. The customer doesn't care. They care about the emotional attachment to the piece; only then do they decide whether they can afford it.

Agree about galleries: they provide valuable services, as well as an avenue to getting your work in front of qualified potential customers/collectors. They deserve compensation.

You'll note I've said nothing about pricing. As a photographer, I struggle with this, just like every other photographer. Good luck.

What does the piece mean to the creator (you not him) how valued it to you? How much do you need to let it go? Now double it!
