No. In fact, he had no knowledge at all of the whole field.

Wow! OK, what's a word ten times greater than "fortuitous"!?

Hey! Don’t interpret this as meaning I cheated the guy!! After I paid him I persuaded him to tell me what he’d paid. Turned out Jim’s estimate was about four times his outlay.

Everybody wins!

No, I was just meaning what "luck"  running into original art at a place that had no business having any.

Nice pickup JB. I love finding original art out in the “wild”.

That's a great find. Not the greatest fidelity to pencils, but Murphy Anderson certainly knew his way around an ink brush.

Neat thread- JB seeing the vintage Batman piece you picked up is as awesome as your story of it’s acquisition… PLUS I love seeing the cool Napoleon painting the younger you painted so many years ago, very cool stuff!!!
