Read it and weep — we’re going to wade through a bit of negative news first, but I assure you that there’s GOOD NEWS at the end of the trail — here is a list of the top 14 eBay searchwords for ART, listed in the order of their relative importance, most-popular searchword in the first place, least popular searchword in last place, thus:
Antique Oil Painting
Original Oil Painting
Metal Wall Art
WPA (Work Progress Administration — Depression Era Art)
The Bass Player is a fast drawing, and the pastel work respects the rapidly sketched impression.
NEW GRAPHICS — GESTURE PASTEL PRINTS — $25 each, they fit into 5″x7″ frames quite nicely, but they come unmatted and unframed for the wholesale price of $25. You can frame these and sell them at a nice profit if you do the work yourself. Continue reading →
A glimpse of a living God World Environment that you can experience first-hand, the Zen Garden has been under construction for over three decades and continues to expand and develop with donations from Zen Meditation students around the world. Continue reading →
This row of low-profile one and two story tenement houses in the West Village was on the street where my friend “Huey” lived, and I stopped for a while one day in 1959, to record that street in charcoal-pencil on a small piece of fawn pastel paper. Printed to the original size, this print fits perfectly in a 5″x7″ frame. Unframed and unmounted, these prints are available at $25 each, which is the wholesale price. Matting & framing are extra and we do matting and framing for resale at very competitive prices. Continue reading →
SIXTIES ROCKERS — Signed in the Plate Edition — $25 each.
Printed on the highest quality PHOTO paper available, this reproduces EXACTLY the size, weight & feel of the original. Side by side, in a frame with a plexiglass protector, even a print expert can’t tell the difference. THIS IS NOT A COLLECTIBLE ITEM, it is an art item, a mini-graphic poster, but made to ARCHIVAL specs and the highest artistic level of aesthetic.
SIXTIES ROCKERS — Pencil Signed & Numbered Edition of 50 — $125 each.
The original charcoal pastels were produced on fawn pastel suede paper, usually during a backstage break or a recording studio gig. I can’t remember the names of most of these rock musicians, but maybe a face will ring a bell. I can’t say that they’re accurate, they weren’t intended to be portraits of anyone in particular, just types for drawing studies. My original charcoal pastels are no longer for sale.

Ready-For-Framing Fine Art Gift Notecards Embossed Signature Series — quite a mouthful, eh? But that’s exactly what they are, what I’m producing tonight. This is my “Signature Series” Gift Art Prints. They’re ready to frame; just pop one into a 5″x7″ frame and hang it on the wall or place it on a desk or dresser or shelf, and you’ve got instant art! I make an RSVP version as well. The embossing stamp cost me $350 and is good for 10,000 impressions, but I’m not. It’s hard to press that thing through the thick stationery paper, and there’s no motor behind it, just my bicep and carpal stuff putting on the pressure, so there’s a built-in limitation to the number I’ll be releasing.
Technically, the art prints are: READY FOR FRAMING FINE ART PRINT GIFT NOTECARD with embossed signature, on cream textwove stock with choice of matching or kraft paper envelope. This is an “open edition” but is signed with the signature blindstamp embossing to ensure that it comes directly from the artist’s own hand at the artist’s atelier (studio). These prints are also available as full-sized wall art, through Heidelberg Editions International. The ready-to-frame notecards retail for $19.95 — more about this at the ICW this morning, 6:30 on the dot, be prompt — I will be there on the open, so be ready to see and hear!
