    • I just sold on ebay a portrait by maira szantho of the Blessed Mother
      for $249.00. I had no idea I was giving it away. I originally was selling it for $598.00 with not bidding what so ever.
      It is 24″ X 28″ listed by “Holy Mother”.. I think I gave it away. How come you weren’t interested ?

      • Sorry about your sad discovery after the fact, Denis.

        I don’t surf the sites to buy these paintings.

        This Rockland collection of paintings is, rather, a dilletantish exercise in the development of my own aesthetic theories on the development of a certain ‘underground’ stream of European and North American art history since the Renaissance, and nothing more.

        I am an artist who is almost completely alienated from what is happening in the so-called artistic mainstream here ‘on the edge of Nowhere’, as the banners on Moss Street for the current Emily Carr show at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria put it, and so this is what I am doing to rectify that problem of alienation, in terms of compiling a collection of paintings and artworks that carry on the tradition of academic draughtsmanship and the rudiments of painterly practice, and thereby, attracting other like-minded individuals who want to learn more about this almost lost aesthetic.

        By all that, I mean that most of these paintings and painters would likely be deemed ridiculous by officials in the bureaucratic world of government-subsidized curators, museums, etc. that plague the art world now.

        God bless you if you can circumvent all that, enjoy looking at reproductions of them, or even the possession of some of them from time to time, and then make money letting them go later…

        If not, then I hope that you can somehow learn some lesson from this mistake.
