    I was given this wall

    for my 1st show , I am happy to get anything I could get with this gallery seeing they have a 2 year waiting list and I only meet these people 5 weeks ago. These are the giclee prints I'm selling for $300.00 each.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Lookin good Dave
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    Nice!! I also hope you sell out of prints. My son does art full time and he loves those giclees as his big moneymaker.

    Thanks Steve, Don and Ted. Ted their not cheep to get done. So if they don't sell I am doing a 50/50 with the RMEF banquet coming up in August. Even if they sell I will have more prints made for the Banquet. It should be a good way to get my name out there.

    Good luck, the wall looks good. I may have to look in to the giclee for a couple of paintings my son did years ago. I assume that the shop/printer has to have the original to reproduce from?

    Edit: Looking around, some offer the certificate (of authenticity), I assume this is a must?

    I really don't see how luck plays in, you should have not trouble selling artwork like that. Do you number the prints and sign them? I don't know how this stuff works. Beautiful pictures.

    Doug I will number them 1/250 ea.
    I say luck because I have been approached a couple of time to show and both times the review boards shot my work down. One was the National Indian Museum in DC and the other was the RMEF national show.
    So I am hoping for a good showing here.

    Darren if you have the originals the printer will have to scan them and then print them. all totaled its about $145.00 buck ea. for the 1st printing.
