my personal art collection!
"Collecting Art" has always been very gratifying for me. From
searching for specific artists, or works, to buying the art; and
specially enjoying the art itself. Unfortunately, over the years
the challenge has changed from acquiring art to finding a place to
exhibit all that I have accumulated! My collection is not focused
on any particular period, type, or medium. This collection is
about the artists I like; some great, and some not so great!
For each artist I have made a master page with his/her works,
biography, sales price, and comparable market prices available for
On these pages you will find listed the artwork in my collection.
Many of the items are for sale with their prices listed; should

GENERAL'S TIPS FOR PURCHASING ART ON INTERNET AUCTION SITES
1. Determine the identity of your seller, and try to contact
others who have purchased art work from them.
2. View the "feedback" page, if it exists, and read the
comments of others who have bought art from the same seller.
3. Ask the seller questions you may have about the art work.
Be wary of evasive responses.
4. Make inquiries into a work's history of ownership. If in
doubt, contact the work's previous owners to evaluate its
5. Obtain a computer image of the artist's signature on the
art work and compare that signature to the artist's.
6. Obtain from the art merchant computer images of the back of
the canvas; they can be used to reveal indications of fakery.
7. Be wary of paintings that are sold at prices far below what
the artist's work normally would command.
8. If you have any concerns about authenticity, seek an expert
opinion quickly after purchasing the art.
