It'll be a few weeks until the painting gets here, but I'll post up some photos when I get it :D

I'm sure this comment was meant in jest but seriously, Origo deserves praise for his generosity.

He is one of the coolest people on EB, and one of the most knowledgeable. Respect :cheers:

Thanks guys, you know it's mutual. Some of the best people, I've met on EB and still "talk" with from time to time, either here or mail.

And yes, I have been parting with pieces from time to time. I can be impulsive, sometimes I find a new artist that I really want something from or get a chance of a commission that is too good to pass up on. Unfortunately I don't always have the financial freedom to just buy, so often the alternative is parting with something.

90% of the times I sell at cost or a little below, most important thing to me is that someone else get the chance to get a piece that they love.

These days I have been parting with a few pieces, not to fund new works but to give this little babyboy the best start in life when he arrives in a little more than 4 months, in shape of a larger place than the one we have right now.
