Artist Statement

Dear Friends,

The Posner Covid-19 sale of the past year has closed. To those who took

advantage of the price breaks during the sale, congratulations on pocketing a tidy sum.

Since I have not updated my price list here in well over a decade I thought I would take

this end-of-the-year opportunity to do so.

Updating the prices is a tedious and time-consuming process. I have to research

current trends in the national and worldwide art market, examine auction results, research

what art critics are saying about what is being shown, what the art magazines are writing

about, what the vector and availability of art supplies is, etc. in order to arrive at fair

market prices for my works.

I feel glad for those patrons of mine who have enjoyed my work in their homes

and workplaces over the years while they have seen a healthy increase in the market

value of the work. I sold my first painting over 50 years ago for 25.

Today, although the prices are higher, the bargains are still there, backed up by

50 years of experience at the easel.

As you know buying here on absolutearts cuts out the middleman, the overhead of

a bricks-and-mortar gallery, the wages for a staff, etc. What you spend here goes directly

to the artist, and YOU dont have to pay for polished hardwood floors and fancy lighting.

Most storefront galleries take 50 of the price the art, while the artist gets only the

remaining 50. So, you get cheaper prices at absolutearts, and the artist winds up with

more in his own pocket. Its a win-win situation.

After you reach the main or first Posner portfolio page, the tour is pretty intuitive.

Please click on an image to enlarge it and bring up further details about the piece of art

and a description or story about it. Once you have done this, you may also click on

zoom-in, a function, which may or may not work.


There are presently a total of about 266 pieces of my art to be viewed. Most are

oil paintings, and the rest are charcoal and pencil drawings, watercolors, prints, etc.

Please ignore the computer-generated words, REQUEST PRICE. You do not

have to contact me to request any prices. Navigate to the in-depth image information

area. It will show the price there.

All prices include an automatic absolutearts 5 charge for accepting credit card

payments. Since, at this time I am not accepting charge card payments myself or through

absolutearts, you can deduct 5 from the listed price to arrive at the actual price.

NOTE This website does not provide for the use of apostrophes in painting titles,

so titles are sometimes awkward, for example, the painting, Otfinoskis Maine has to be

listed as The Maine of Otfinoski. Etc.

All customers please note that crating, packing, shipping and insurance are in

addition to the price of the artwork. Payment types accepted are money order, personal

check, and cashiers check. Upon receipt of payment, artwork will be shipped via UPS or

USPS or FedEx. Indiana residents, please add 7 sales tax to all artwork prices. There

is no tax on crating, packing, shipping and insurance. All paintings are oil-on-canvas

unless otherwise specified and, unless otherwise noted, are UNframed or box-framed

with lattice strips which are either painted or stained white, brown, or black or left as

bare wood. Framed pieces are generally pictured WITH their frames on. The net cost of

framing is figured into the retail price, as it appears I do not make any profit on the

frames.

Bulk sales are subject to alternate price scheduling either up or down.

If you have any questions, please message me through this absolutearts website.

I want to personally thank World Wide Art Resources and absolutearts.com for

providing this invaluable service to artists around the world. Again, here on January 6,

2021, I again express my appreciation for the service that Markus Kruse, Jodi and Janet

and the rest of the staff has provided to many thousands of artists. They are real patrons

of artists everywhere.
