“The painting was full of dust and looked terrible, A dealer offered me $300.00 for it, and!, I would have to clean it and varnish it. So I cleaned it and varnished it, found the original frame and hung it on the studio wall. The dealer, well, he doesn’t own a Marvin Steel.

“I like the colors. The models were later used for bait.

“The painting was in my surrealistic period.”

Looks like Marvin is the better dealer.

“An artist is a trader….the hardest and most exacting of all traders.”
―Ayn Rand “Atlas Shrugged” p.782 (HB)
