Fake Picasso

"Psst, do you want to buy a Picasso painting?"
"Sure, how much?"
"Cheap, 1.5 million"

Two weeks ago in Madrid, Spanish police arrested four people trying to sell a forged Picasso oil painting for 1.5 million dollars.    The canvas was a counterfeit version of a 1964 work.  These people also provided fake document signed by Paloma Picasso, one of the painter's daughters. 
Three art brokers were arrested and the current owner, a well-known Madrid antiquarian.

Abstract Faces

 About This Abstract Art

These Abstract Oil Paintings are on masonite which is a hard board about 1/8 of an inch thick. I prepare the board by sanding and gessoing many layers before I paint with oil. These paintings must have some support to hang, such as a frame or support in the back. I've done art on masonite board for many, many years and they are as durable as canvas paintings.
  • These paintings are completely original. They will never be recreated.
  • This art work is for the few who dare to be different. It's not mainstream.
  • It's a bold, colorful and edgy. March to your own drummer and go abstract.
  • This is modern art, cubist and expressionist.
