Often I will receive requests from website visitors, customers and friends to show paintings from my private collection. I hadn't uploaded any onto this website for many years, until June 1st 2013. I prefer to think of this painting as a part of my own collection instead of as an item of stock. It is not priced but since I can't hold on to every painting that I'd like to, it is open to offers.
To make an offer and request a condition report use this link for email firstname.lastname@example.org quoting ref. code 000328.
Otherwise give me a call (09:00 - 17:30 British time) on +44 7887390870.
Although there will not be guides to what kind of offer I might accept, I will post onto this webpage any offers I do receive. This will be the amount only with no personal details (as these are private and confidential). Amounts offered may be also kept private if instructed.
£1500 offer declined June 1st 2013
