There was a 3rd commissioned painting scheduled to be in the show but was not finished for the opening reception. However, it may be there now. Supposedly it has a "Monkey" theme with of course lots of monkeys, monkeying around. Don't know the title to that one.

Thanks modmana for sharing the pictures! We had brought a camera to the opening to photograph Shag with our painting but he was so busy signing we didn't want to bother him. Your pictures look great!

I hope this seller isn't any TC member, but are you kidding me? It's a POSTCARD for gosh sakes! No wonder the seller made it a private auction otherwise I would email the bidders.

hhmmmm.....yeah, "Privates" on ebay items like this always makes me think of past auctions with 'shill' bids: fake (buddy) bids to drive up a price in order to make it look like the item being offered for sale is a hot item, thus making a pseudo-demand for the item. I would bet that the true high bids are from overseas (usually Japan).

That postcard auction can't possibly be real. Someone must be working some kind of scam there. Those postcards are still available at the gallery. If you called them and asked nicely, they'd probably send you one for free. I have a couple of those cards and if people truly want them that badly, I have no problem parting with mine...

"A fool and his money are soon parted"

I have it on good authority that Shag is zazz!

And why is the shipping for a POSTCARD $4.00 PLUS and additional $1.30 for insurance? Sent first class this item would cost a mere .37!

The $4.00, you hope, would be because it costs $3.85 to ship Priority Mail and that's how he would mail it. However, I bought a Shag poker chip, the listing said it cost $4.00 for shipping, and all the seller did was stick it in an envelope and stuck a .37 stamp on it. Nice little profit for the seller on S&H! The motto here: ask questions before buying!
