what happens to unsold work
Unsold work of dead artists lands in the hands and homes of the living. When an artist is "famous" unsold work may go to auction and then the profits are shared with families or other entities. One artist I know of, Clyfford Still, set up a will during his life in order for his art to be put on display in a museum that was willing to house his entire collection of works.

New in 2022! From now on my paintings will be based on participatory pricing. What this means is that the customer will set the value of the work. You pay what the work is worth to you. At checkout there will continue to be shipping and handling fees and a minimum base price to cover materials costs. Beyond that, you will choose whatever you would like to pay. The joy for me is in knowing that you are enjoying the work you fell in love with and that inspires beauty and joy in your space. Thank you for your patronage.
