Something a little different for eBay - Any interest?

This is something a little different...I have tried to sell my courtroom art on eBay in the past and have had limited success. This drawing is of an un-named victim of a crime, a security guard who was assaulted. He was just a cog in the vast machine that is the Justice system. I drew this during the Preliminary Hearing for this trial, so his injuries were fairly new.

I think this stands on its own as a piece of art, even if the details and circumstances are unknown to the viewer. Would you buy a piece such as this? Do you think anyone else would?

I haven't been listing my courtroom art lately - I've been listing mostly Christmas aceo's. My original plan when I began on eBay was to list my courtroom art and branch off into selling paintings. (I was a courtroom artist for about a dozen years in the 1980's, so I have a lot of work.)

I'd be interested in your reaction to this work.

The Three Witches from Macbeth - Nibblefest

"Double, double, toil and trouble,
Fire burn and cauldron bubble..."

This original painting was done for eBay's "Nibblefest," an art contest which starts on the 20th of every month and ends on the 27th. Each auction must begin with a starting bid of just 99 cents. Any medium and size is allowed. This month's theme was "Monochromatic - Purple."

The painting was done in watercolor, Dr. Martin's Dyes, Micron Pen and colored pencil on Arches Watercolor paper. It measures 13.5 x 8.25 inches.

This auction ends this evening.

Here are a few details:

The Ghost of Christmas Future - A Christmas Carol

I finished the latest in my series of aceo's based on the characters in Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. It is an original painting, done in watercolors, Dr. Martin's Dyes, Micron pen and colored pencil. As with all aceo's, it measures just 2.5 x 3.5 inches.

New ACEO series - A Christmas Carol characters

I have a new series of ACEO's - Art Cards, Editions and Originals - also known as Artist Trading Cards or ATC's. These are original watercolors of the characters in Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, a book which has fascinated me since I first read it as a child. The image size is just 2.5 x 3.5 inches - the same size as a sports trading card!

The first two have auctions on eBay ending tonight.

The "Ghosts" will appear on eBay this evening.

Thanks for looking!
