Price of this amazing painting

I got this amazing painting of my horse done!I love it so much and Im glad the price I got it for. I was just wondering if I got it done for a good price, it a 11x20 water colored painting that I paid $150 for. Think it is a good price?? The pic of it is below but its sideways and small but you can see how it turned out!

Its not a bad price. I charge $300 or so to draw a 18x24 portrait of a horse or dog. It goes to feed and care for my rescue horses. I think it is about in line with other fees you'd see. Are you happy with what you paid?

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.

Yes im very happy with what I have paid :) I just wanted to know what other people thought of the price, plus it was done locally.

It is hard to simply say a piece of artwork is worth X.

To me a painting of your horse is not worth much so it would be hard for me to give you a price.

From what I can see from the small sideways image, it is a nice job. You must be VERY happy with it.

Lovely painting! I don't know much about pricing artwork, but I'd say it was pretty reasonable

art is kind of hard to price. It all depends on the demand. That's a good painting and I am certain the person put a lot of time and effort into it so I think you got a good deal.

For a pet portrait commission piece that is a very good price! I know people who charge in the high 100's for a commission piece so $150 is very good!
I still doubt my work too much to charge that yet, so average around $120 a piece which is as far as I've noted, the cheapest in Australia :S And I have a decent sized waiting list so will be bumping prices up asap.
