My watercolours are selling very well on eBay. There are some very discerning art collectors there who know their art and I'm pleased to say they have shown interest in my auction listings. My prices are very reasonable and I like to think I am able to make real art available to collectors and those people who haven't had an original piece of art before. I'm very pleased to do that.

I have been monitoring some of the work in the Self Representing Artists and I am sad to say that there are some people who do try to take advantage of those who are new to buying art.
There is one person who just prints photographs onto textured paper, blurs the edges with some sort of image editing tool, and tries to pass it off as an original watercolour. What a rotten thing to do? I wish I could name him or at least give you his eBay identity, but it would only get me into trouble to do it publicly. If you are looking for art on eBay, please be careful and do try to find an artist who at least has a website you can go to so you can see what they have painted in the past and see their art background. People who offer art which is almost photographically perfect and don't have a trail that you can follow to identify them are probably carrying out a scam. Please be wary and good picture hunting.
