    Do you guys remember when I painted this?

    I really really do not want to part with it, but I need the money so I'm going to suck it up and try to sell it. This is the only cow skull I've done so far and I put a lot of hours into it and spent about $200 or so in supplies including the skull itself.

    I have no idea what to sell it for. I see some up for sale for $100 and some for sale up to $600 or more. I'd really like somewhere between $400-500 because I've put so much time into it, but what do you guys think is a reasonable price that I can offer this skull for?

    The theme of the skull is the New Mexican Southwest if anyone is interested in know. It's painted in Acrylic and sealed with a high gloss. The eye sockets are dream catchers with feathers hanging down as well.

    It is absolutely gorgeous! If I were you I'd start out offering it at the high end and see if you get any takers. You can always lower it a little at a time if you need to.

    I'm thinking about probably pricing it between $400-450... maybe put it at $450 and see what I get? My mom thinks I should just shoot for $500, but I don't know if I'll get that much and if I price it at $450 OBO and someone offers $400 I'd take that. I think that $375 is probably the lowest I'd go only because if I go too much lower I wouldn't really be making a profit off of it since materials were about $200 if you include the skull.

    When you come through here, be sure to remind me ahead of time. I think I have a cow skull in my basement and I'll give it to you.

    Price it at $500. Forget the OBO business because then you'll get lower offers. It's ART, woman!

    I say go for $500 too. If it doesn't sell, then you can lower it. But if you put it at $450, you're not going to get any more than that.

    I put it up as 450 OBO on Facebook and then quickly deleted it and changed it to 500 firm. We'll see if anyone is interested... if not I'll lower the price
