  1. Wow! You're so very clever. If there was a gun pointed at my head I still couldn't draw a straight line to save my life so I'm in complete awe of your talent. Not just your talent but also your subjects...coke and a real live lemon...it looks awesome!

  3. This is really eyecatching. And I want to say that you've done a really good job with the lettering on the bottle (I have painted signs for sooo many years). I have one small criticism and I may be wrong...but the lemon doesn't look as grounded as the bottle.
    The painting looks so good that I almost hated to bring it up but I think you would want to know that...and it could just be me.
    Hope I didn't overstep my bounds here.
    I really enjoy seeing your work.
    Keep in touch.
    Pat.

  6. I've never bid on anything on ebay and am not really sure how it works...is it currently 1 bidder at one cent? If so, that sounds kinda chintzy but I guess the object on ebay is to get stuff as cheap as you can. I may try to bid later if I can figure out how.

  7. Thanks for the thought, Pat. I certainly wasn't suggesting another artist should bid--that always sort of freaks me out. :^D

  8. Oh, I didn't think you meant that, Connie. It's just that this a really good painting and it's sitting there with only one cent bid on it...it just deserves more respect than that.
    (And I have bought my friends' books before because I liked them).

  9. Oh well--eBay is always a craps shoot, especially since I haven't shown things regularly. You have to do that for several months to build any sort of name recognition or following and have a better chance of selling.

  10. So, what happens if the bid window closes and you don't have a fair price? You don't have to take a ridiculously low bid right?

  11. That's sort of what I thought. I've never really done the ebay thing so I'm not familiar with the procedure. I guess if I was trying to buy a chain saw or something I would be trying to be as cheap as possible but this throwing pennies at a work of art kinda pisses me off. You'd think I'd be insensitive to this sort of thing by now but I guess not.
    Keep em coming. You're always an inspiration.
