You never know when fortune will smile at you… and make the painting you bought for a few thousand pesos balloon in worth into the millions.
Back in 2010, British businessman Andy Fields purchased a collection of five paintings from a Las Vegas garage sale for $5. When he decided to have one of the paintings reframed, he discovered an early Andy Warhol sketch hidden behind it. The signed drawing is believed to be of 1930s singer Rudy Vallee and was created when Warhol was just 10 years old. Warhol paintings fetch absurd prices on the auction block — the artist is considered to be the bellwether of the art market — and the sketch is estimated to be worth a whopping $2 million.
So with fingers crossed, I would like to offer some of my paintings which have lately overpopulated my garage, depriving my cars a shelter of their own.
I reckon that if I’m martyred for my scathing graphics and foul writing aimed at A-hole celebrities… the value of my paintings will soar.
If my music goes immortal (all 600+ of them), I can almost see the value of my art go through the roof.
I figured a 9-day duration for the sale would be just right before I send off the paintings to some storage rental facility that they can call “home”.
First things first, here are the mechanics:
1. No haggling. (We are not dealing with galunggong and talong here).
2. Absolutely fixed prices. No exchange, no return.
3. Below, you’ll see all the paintings being offered for sale – including important details.
4. If you fall in love with one or two or three of the work, PM me at my Facebook page or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
5. From your message, we can arrange delivery (free) and manner of payment (C.O.D. if I know you personally). Or bank transfer – the way most online transactions are consummated.
And now, my art (for a larger view, click on the image)…
