Re: [BKARTS] ?



RJ, I'm an "RJ" too!  But when it comes to setting the price for one's work,
that my friends is a good question. 

Ethically, I can't charge a Shul or Synagogue more than $7.50 per book
repaired and sometimes that is fair but most of the time given the work that
needs doing, and I am only an intermediate-novice at this, much more is
deserved.

The better question to be begged is who does the artist value her or his
work in light of the price or commission she/he is getting for it.

Which begs the question how does one set a proper value to one's work?
