How Much Would You Pay For Oversized Artwork?

What would you expect to pay for oversize artwork? This was the question I found myself with the other day while in conversation with my brother. We're both do it yourselfers and know that there are many ways to make oversize art while keeping the price tag small. That said, a large piece that was handmade from an artist carries more weight than such and I'm not against paying for it. The question is, how much am I willing to pay?

Both my brother and I would easily make our own art, but are willing to pay for a piece that perfectly suits our respective spaces. That said, he's willing to pay more than I am as I'd like to keep said purchases under $1,000 and more often than not, usually around half that price for pieces over 5 feet.

That doesn't mean I undervalue artists who price things above that, it just means in my girl brain, I'd rather make something for less if it's over that. What do you think? What's the most you've paid for artwork, or would be willing to pay for the perfect piece? Does size matter? What do you think?
