: : : : : Just got a letter back from the seller of this wonderful painting, and for anyone interested, the original issue price of this print was $225.00, so the starting bid of $125 is good, though I can't remember if there is a reserve price or not. Will have to double check that. Anyway, the print has been signed by the artist, James Bama on one side, and by Wes on the other. It comes with the certificate & original portfolio, and has never been framed. This would really be a cool thing for one of us to have...wish it could be ME!! Ros...are you there? Do you already own one of these prints? If not, you should jump on this & try for it. Bama's works have consistently held their value and/or appreciated in value in the print market, and to have Wes's signature makes it even more special for us Mohicanlanders. I hope someone goes for it!
: : : : : As I said, if I knew where I could beg, borrow or steal the money from, I'd bid on it, myself.
: : : : : She-Who-Is-Too-Poor-By-Far!
: : : : Hi MMMM!
: : : : I empathize with your frustration
: : : : Some art work! Pure sex and violence, and yet, every woman will want to tame this beast.
: : : : yes, I do wish someone from LOTM secures it, and then sells us inkjet glossy photopaper reprints for $10....
: : : : :-)
: : : : PS: I'd pay $15 for one of those....
: : : Tame Magua? Be still my heart (sigh!!)
: : : ...Jeri
: : Hi!
: : Can 3 of us not pool $75 each (I am assuming the price went up???) and buy it? It is a rarely powerful piece of art.
: : I am a Magua fan, per se, but the man in this painting.... wow! Indeed I shall try to tame him (!). Who's got a credit card? And then of course we'll sign an agreement, we'll round-robin Magua. One week with me, one week with you, etc.
: : :-)
: Well, if no one replies, I have to content myself by printing him out as is, low qual. web jpeg.
: But the art work is something else. The body is that which we call in the dream-manufacturing (fiction writing) genre as: whipcord lean. Wow. I am an old lady, so this is not hormones talking now. I don't like his nose. I would shadow that. But the vein on the forehead! Wow. Rage. Power. Righteousness. What an artist! What masterful brush strokes!
: Tiger! Come on boy, turn on the air conditioner for Mommy!
Would've answered sooner, but I've been trying to get some work done. Trouble is, my eyes keep straying to the copy of the picture I printed off on our colour printer. Oh my!! Raw masculine power...he's got it all! Wish I could place a bid, and like your idea, but the exchange rate is a killer...little out of my league. I'll just have to settle for my daydreams...sigh!! (At this rate, I'll never get any work done...)
