I recently saw a Tretchikoff in the wild locally, and while the Balinese Girl isn't really my Boom Boom Room's style I'm kicking myself for not grabbing it.
What's the normal price for a vintage one? so that I can kick myself harder!

Pauly, I think I bought my print for $20, or was it $15? I found mine in perfect condition at Goodwill, and used a 15% off coupon.

I paid $45 for my Balinese Girl, which I bought about 11 years ago in an collector's shop. At the time, I didn't know anything about the artist..I just liked the print. I thought it was slighly over priced, to be honest, but I like it so m uch I eventually bought after going back to look at it several times over the course of six months...lol.

My book Incredible Tretchikoff, the first complete biography of the artist, has finally been released.
My publisher, an new independent company called Art /Books, did a splendid job. It’s a very beautiful edition.
You can see the preview at Amazon.co.uk: http://amzn.to/ZOg5Id
Or, if you're in the States, try Amazon.com: http://amzn.to/ZxRlI1
Please, help to spread the word!
