the gallery at NewsChannel5

This is my office wall. Those are my remaining paintings. And all of them except for the large aqua and gold one have sold. And there were twice as many that sold before I got the chance to photograph the phenomenon.

A little inappropriate, yes. I guess since the General Manager came down and browsed, I'm not in too much trouble. So many people said "You have to make me a painting before you leave!" That I said I would send them a photo of the existing paintings. Then I just decided to bring them all in.

I sold all the paintings I own, including a few prints, some that have been hanging in my bathroom, and assorted long forgotten works. Nothing like liquidating your assets. Let's just say we're now staying in a PRIMO hotel in Rome. I'm so glad that they all went to good homes, to people I love, and that they'll remember me whenever they see the painting.

Like my co-worker Terrence says "This just goes to show you that artists really never make money on their artwork till they're dead." Let's hope this is as close to dying as I'm going to get for a while.

How did you price the paintings? My house is to the point where it's absolutely full of paintings, and some need to be set free into other homes, where they can make other walls happy. But I have no idea what to charge for them at all.

Any advice or resources on pricing paintings?

I love it. Way to raise money for a fab honeymoon AND have less to move in the process!
