eBay attention sought!

You be the judge. That's really all I can say about this.
Judge the quality and judge the value.

As for myself, I just try to ignore these things as they are unecessary minor distractions to the market. That said, good luck to the artist, and good luck to Al. Scratch em off, Al.

The ebay description, now gone, listed the artist as a student of Al Black.

Al likes scratch-off lottery tickets.

Alfred Hair on eBay

I had one of these several years ago, only it was a 36 incher, not 48.

It also happened to be unsigned. I sold it at a Stuart show to a highwaymen dealer from Fort Pierce who had the power to raise the dead. He apparently had Alfred Hair come out of his grave and sign it. I then saw it on eBay, signed A Hair, about a month later. That wasn't the first time, I also had a yellow one that I sold to a dealer from Arcadia at a St Pete show and the same thing happened.

Be careful out there.

That said, with all due respect to this particular listing, this one appears to be legitimate.

Highwaymen art at the Museum of History, Tallahassee

Today I'm just going to direct traffic.

If you get a chance, go to the capital and see this exhibit. I saw it when it premiered at Nova University. Simply stated, it has nice paintings.


And just for fun, I've ALWAYS had trouble with this:

The image at the top is one of Scott's Hairs. Sounds strange if you give it too much thought.
