I have heard that a 16X20 is the best size to sell as people can transport them easily and yet see them on the wall from a distance. I don't pretend to be a great photographer, however I will say that I have seen the work of those that are. At least I know good work when I see it. That is better than some. Ric.
    Commercially, I'm still shooting some food and product shots on 4x5 E6. As far as art goes, it's been film all the way, with some forays into making large digital negatives for big alt process prints, but the prints are analog in the end. With the art stuff, I don't have to sell the format, just the result, and those results have had very good feedback, so I wouldn't and don't hesitate to use analog processes as part of a profitable workflow.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I've always liked the marketing expression: Sell the sizzle, not the Steak. I wonder if it would be easier to make money from your darkroom?
