I am looking to buy an orginal Bukowski painting for a private collection. Can someone point me in the right direction ?
I wouldn't do anything like that. I wouldn't cut anything. Its destructive to the history of it. It would likely devalue both the painting and the book. Besides I am looking for a full canvas.depends on the wants/needs of the collection, but your fastest route is probably just be to cut a painting out of one of the deluxe edition books. they sell for less than standalone paintings, and art collectors often don't have much use for books anyway.
Say like in the 75 (really 150) drawings I do for each book. That takes me a month during which time I can do nothing else creative. You sell 75 of these books (signed) for $2625, which, if you subtract it from my $6500 salary leaves you only $3875 to pay me. You’ve got wet back labor working for you. And once you told me over the phone, “Just think, for every drawing you do, you get $35.” That’s when I first thought, this man really thinks me an idiot.
While he was doing them for the books, yes. That was 1969 - 1984. He got burned out on painting as the demand for paintings increased. In cirerita's post above he's complaining about doing 75 paintings, but for the later books he did as many as 150 for each title.Were most of the paintings used/tipped in for limited editions?
