Getting the Most For Your Painting

Auction Alert: Santa Fe Kitchen Corner
Last week we focused on a major work coming up at auction which includes some still life within it. Santa Fe Kitchen Corner is all still life, and it’s also on the summer auction schedule, this time in San Francisco.
Auction Alert: Major Hulings European Market Scene
“The most interesting time of day for this pedestrian mall is early morning. The mist has not yet burned off. Flower merchants are setting up their stalls, Barcelonans are walking to work and tourists are still in bed.” —Clark Hulings, Timeless Beauty: Pursuing Life’s Textures
Auction Alert: Major Hulings Grand Canyon Painting
“This is the Southern Kaibab Trail. There is a Northern one as well. They connect, and it is possible to hike the canyon from rim to rim without veering from Kaibab.”
Portrait in Vermilion
“I do not know this man’s name, but I do know that he founded the Abbeville Building and Loan in 1890, and that my father painted his portrait sometime between 1947 and 1954. Clearly he was quite young when he founded the savings bank in Abbeville, Vermilion Parish, Louisiana.”
“The story of her patient’s amnesia is told by the shadow on his face, and no matter how long she’s been on her feet this shift, she is rosy-cheeked, and her lipstick is on-trend.” As I am away this week, our Account Manager Penelope has written this week’s post: hope you enjoy it! — Elizabeth.
Blue Shoes, White Donkey
This little gem was included in my father’s 1964 solo watercolor show in Tulsa, Oklahoma, from which it vanished into a private home.
Crisis & Resilience in Guatemala
“Hundreds of firefighters and rescue workers face impassible roads and destroyed bridges, and over 3,000 residents have been evacuated…”
Franco’s Laundry Room
“I have a very vivid memory of being carried into fairly rough surf by a local fisherman, because I was demanding to be allowed into the water, and my mother was concerned about the waves.”
The Camel of the Bayou
In the Southern US, Spanish Moss apparently was named Itla-Okla or “Tree Hair” by Native Americans; as the French and Spanish created new, retaliatory names for it that mildly insulted one another’s beards and hair, “Spanish Moss,” ended up sticking.
The Rain in Spain
“I titled this painting assuming that the name painted on the basket was indeed that of the lettuce seller. The scene is in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, where the rain falls mainly everywhere —hence the damp pavement.”
It’s Donkey Week!
“Donkeys are part of how things get done. Patient. Steadfast. Hardworking. Humble. Strong. Clark Hulings said: ‘If left to their own devices and their own pace, they will serve well. They are by nature sure-footed, loyal and affectionate.’ “
