I have opened an eBay shop and have started uploading items. I will be experimenting for a while to establish what subjects, sizes sell best and what auction formats.
I made a promising start last week - I put 7 small prints up for auction and sold 5 of them.
I will be constantly adding to it and changing things. The link is here or click on the eBay logo.

This is my latest print, a portrait of Igor Stravinsky. He wasn't very handsome but I am quite pleased how he turned out.
The central image is a 2 colour photoetching on a zinc plate from a drawing I made. The outer border is a collagraph print.
I am enjoying this series of composers and am learning a lot at the same time. I spend quite a lot of time researching the subject mostly on the net. I intend to do a web page on each composer.

I am still working on my Brahms portrait but in the meantime I have finished this portrait of Verdi. The central image is a 2 plate photoetching. The yellow surround is a collagraph print.
Next on the list is Puccini which should be ready next week.
