This is a commissioned piece for a Cello player. I am still work on my photo skills. There is too much glare on the image.
I have received many emails asking about my "Pears in Light" painting, and I might have disappointed many of you by giving an unexpected quote. Not long ago, A gallery owner had a long talk with me. He likes my work and has an intention to show my paintings in his gallery, but my price range on eBay is just too low to be compatible with the gallery prices. Well, it is a tough call. I like to see my paintings showing galleries and get sold there. At mean time, I also like what I am doing now on-line. I have thought about this issue for a long time. Finally I decided that I will show my relative large (9x12 and above) paintings in galleries with prices making sense to them. At mean time, I still handle smaller paintings on-line myself, and the prices are much more affordable. I also have seen many times that my small paintings reselling in galleries with price tags multiple times larger than my eBay prices. I don't have any problems with that. Thank you for creating a win-win situation. I am happy to see my paintings become collectible, and I also keep creating paintings affordable to everybody. I sincerely hope and appreciate if you can give me your tips on running an art business.
