more crickets than friends
So the Mafia thread got me to thinking. I have been trying to buy an original Dee Dee Ramone painting for years. I've heard when he was alive he sold them for about $200.00 bucks each. The closest I've gotten now is a $2600.00 bid last year, where I was outbid by the winner at $2900.00. I've given up, for now, but just wondered what experiences or examples you guys have seen out there. The Henry Hill paintings are insanely funny, but bad, still I would not have been surprised if they had been going for thousands instead of the $20.00 or $30.00 bucks they do go for. I bought an original black and white drawing by Daniel Johnston a few years back for about $100.00. So I was looking at his website today and saw that several of his watercolor's sell in the thousands! INCREDIBLE, I mean I'm shocked. He's NOT that famous and the quality maybe a little bit above Henry Hill? Here's one below that sold for $1,200.00. What's everybody got to say on the subject? Or what have you guys found similar to this? And if you know anyone with a Dee Dee Ramone painting, I'll trade my car and girlfriend for it!
