Well, I'm no Tim Cox lol. Wish I was. But, I'll be starting a new one as soon as I can get to Michael's for some better paints. I used paint from Walmart on that one and had a really hard time.

Thank you all so much! I was a little embarrassed of it and worried that it isn't going to bring anything at the auction. I'll find out Saturday.

And a drawing of a Fjord I started and can't seem to finish.

Well.....They didn't auction it off. They had a really good turn out for the motorcycle ride, 300 bikes, but as soon as the ride was over everyone started leaving. There wasn't enough people left to have put it up.

So, one of the members offered me $75 for it. What do you think? Is that a slap in the face, or is it reasonable? (I've never sold one of my paintings before) Would you give $200? Its already framed and matted.

$75 for that is a joke. I would say $250.

not your best?

Sorry, my last post screwed up.

ANyway, Southern comfort, What makes you say this? This sense of dissatisfaction is based on what? Really, not just that you weren't emotionally into it. Many artists have to paint whether they are into it or not. But, it really is a outstanding portrait. What do you think needs improvemnt?
I ask this, rather anylitcally because I am a bit of an artist myself.
What would you change about this picture?

I hope you didn't take $75 for such a beautiful painting, you really have a lot of talent.
