BZTAT Studios
Artwork by BZTAT

BZTAT Studios has been very active lately! I have been working on several pet portraits and other commissions, and I also have started on the big “Downtown Cats” mural.

Even so, the cost of keeping the studio open are not being fully covered by the income from sales. I am compelled, therefore to raise my prices.

New prices for paintings can be found by clicking on the artwork in my galleries. Prices for custom pet portraits can be found here.

Although there has been an increase, I still am trying to keep my portraits affordable. I on occasion offer special discounts to social media followers.

Artwork pricing is a very strange thing. Each artist and their style are unique, so there is no clear way to standardize prices. My research tells me that artwork value is driven by the cost of materials and time put into the artwork; reputation and skill level of the artist; and general market factors in the economy.

At this juncture, I am primarily self-promoting my work and avoiding the gallery-driven market, so I can set my own prices. That may change as I become more established. I guess I am trying to be honest and open about the fact that I anticipate further increases as my work becomes more popular.

If you are interested in purchasing an artwork or commissioning a pet portrait, please contact me through the contact tab above, and we can discuss the pricing. I look forward to hearing from you!

Life is and Adventure!
