While googling my name placement on the web for my art, what should I find but two of my childhood art pieces for sale on EBaY? And at top dollar too--- $450 for a colored pencil portrait sketch and $1500 (was $3000) for an 11x14 acrylic.
I guess they aren't making any more vintage 1960s era art! Artists: there may be an untapped market here! Start digging through those closets. Tell the family not to toss 'em!
It is definitely flattering, but also mysterious who this seller is and how they got hold of these pieces, which were recently in my parents's home. I think it's possible I put one in a pile of giveaways during a garage sale, but the other one... I don't THINK so!
I put in an email to the seller . Hey, I've got MORE of those!
I will keep you posted if I find out anything further on this bizarre mystery.
Update, March 2010: Apparently, someone picked it up by mistake at the estate sale. And, it sold for $1000 as a result of this blog!
Think I'll start lookin' thru the closets.....
