Robert Genn's Ten Commandments of Art Pricing:

 Thought that this was a good guide as far as pricing artwork. I receive Robert Genn's newsletter and follow him on twitter. Plz follow @robertgenn 

My answers are in italic.

Thou shalt start out cheap. ( I did . . .)
Thou shalt publish thy prices. ( They are . . .)
Thou shalt not lower thy prices. ( Won't . . . not fair to previous clients.)
Thou shalt raise thy prices regularly and a little. ( I do . . .)
Thou shalt not have one price for Sam and another for Joe. ( Haven't done this . . .)
Thou shalt not price by talent or time taken, but by size. ( I do, $3.50 sq inch . .)
Thou shalt lay control on thy agents and dealers. ( Have gallery rep . . .)
Thou shalt not easily discount thy prices. ( if you buy more then one  OR amp; will send 10 %  in your name to local art alliance. )
Thou shalt deal with those who will honor thee. ( so far so good . . .)
Thou shalt end up expensive. ( getting there . . .)
