This site regularly receives visitors from 70 countries.  I hope my artworks can be sold in all these countries ! I did something like 4500 artworks since 2006.  There's a bit more than 2000 unsold.    I create investment grade artworks.

I think that 4 things mostly contribute to raise the price of an artwork.

The first is the celebrity of the painter.  My artworks were sold in Canada, USA, England, Italy, Hungary, Ireland, Germany, Norway, Australia, Taiwan, Singapore, Peru, Portugal, China, France, Russia, Indonesia, South Africa and Israel.  My site is visited in 70 countries.

The second quality is the easiness to recognize an artwork as original and authentic.  All my artworks are scanned, top and back, signed reproductions as well.  I write the dimensions, the medium used, the date of the creation and also the order of the artworks in the creation process, the color of the paper if it is not white, the name of the buyer, the date of the sale, the address of the buyer, his email address, the price of the artwork and the price of the shipping cost.  If the item is sold on eBay.ca, I write the identification number of the transaction and I also write it when the artwork is not sold on eBay.ca.  I offer a certificate of authenticity (COA) that is a warranty this artwork will be recognized as authentic in the future.  I have never sold an artwork without these datas and if I cannot record them, I do not sign the artwork.  By the way, I never sign autographs.

The third thing that contribute to raise the price of an artwork is the technique.  I have studied restauration of antique artworks, so I know how to create artworks that will last.  The drawings and the paintings can last for centuries or even more.  I suggest to frame under glass my artworks made on paper to prevent dirt from dust and pollution.  If you don't have enough space to hang all the artworks on walls, store them in plastic sheets in binders.  I create artworks that are 8.5"x11" or 8"x10" for they cost less to store, package, weight few and are easily sold everywhere in the world because these dimensions are the most commonly used worldwide and frames are the most affordable.

The fourth thing, very important, which gives value to an artwork is the composition.  You can create artworks with a stunning technique and superb colors but if composition is not good, you will never be a master.  There's rules generally admitted but I would state shortly that an artwork with good composition will always look better once framed.  When an artwork looks better without frame, it is because composition is deficient.  The composition is more important than technique or color when price is decided.  People often laugh about Picasso but he was the best composition expert I know.  All his artworks will gain beauty once framed.

I try to create artworks that will not be completely seen or understood with a quick glance.  This mystery contribute to the value of an artwork.  A mysterious woman is more desirable, this is the same for art.  I see something in my art and someone else will see something else.  We can talk about.  I think art created civilisation, before writting, because it is the expression of a desire to share ideas and create contacts between the persons.  Art creates emotions and teaches us about who we are, but this effect is independant of the artwork.  I often say that artworks are like children.  We give them all our love and do our best so these children become great persons.  Someday the children leave the house and their destiny is independant of us.  This is the same for art, it gains meanings that the artist cannot predict and it is correct and even wished.  My art is not made to fight for ideas or for political purposes, it is made to celebrate life and our era.

This is my official site, write me if you have questions or if you want to authentify an artwork.
