TWO PAINTINGS LIKE THE ONE ABOVE WERE ALSO PURCHASEDF
THE ONE ABOVE IS ALSO BEING OFFERED

HOW DID WE COME TO INVEST IN THE ART WORK BEING OFFERED?

I STAYED AT THE PARK LANE HOTEL, OWNED & OPERATED BY Leona Mindy Roberts Helmsley , WIFE OF BILLIONAIRE HELMSLEY OVER LOOKING CENTRAL PARK. IT WAS MY FIRST STAY IN A GENUINE 5 STAR HOTEL. YOU SEE, I GREW UP ON THE STREETS. I REMEMBER THINKING THAT ONE DAY I WOULD HAVE THE CASH TO STAY IN ONE OF THESE HOTELS.

WHILE I SURELY  WAS NOT RICH, I WAS RICH FOR THE MOMENT WITH 5000,00 BUCKS IN CASH IN A MONEY BELT AND DROVE A CADILLAC ELDORADO, RED WITH WHITE LEATHER AND 500 CI ENGINE.

A FUNNY THING HAD TO OCCUR OR WE NEVER WOULD HAVE FOUND FOUR ORPHANS

WHEN WE GOT READY TO DRIVE 1500 MILES, I RECALLED THE POLES THAT FIT ACROSS THE BACK SEAT OF ALL CARS OF THE MIDDLE CLASS FAMILIES WHO DROVE FROM THE NORTH TO THE SOUTH DURING THE  MIAMI SEASON TO VACATION ON MIAMI BEACH. THEY ALL HAD POLES THAT FIT ACROSS THE CAR IN THE BACK SO THEY COULD HANG THEIR HANGERED CLOTHING.. 

SO I BOUGHT AND INSTALLED ONE IT IN MY AWESOME SHINY 5 YEAR OLD CADDY ELD.  SOON WE HAD 40 HANGERS OF CLOTHING SWISHING BACK AND FORTH AS WE HIT THE ROAD.

ALONG THE WAY WE STOPPED IN DIFFERENT CITIES, LIKE WASHINGTON DC. AT EACH STOP WE WOULD STAY IN TOP HOTELS. BUT NONE WERE 45 STARS AND ALL WERE USED TO US CITIZENS IN US CARS WITH US MADE CLOTHING POLES. I MEAN THE LOBBIES WERE FULL OF LUGGAGE RACKS WITH BARE NAKED CLOTHING SWISHING BACK AND FORTH AS THE BELL BOYS [AND MEN] PUSHED THE WHEELED RACKS.

WELL, EVENTUALLY WE ARRIVED IN THE   "CITY". 5 DAYS WERE ALLOTTED. SO, [MY LADY AND I PULL UP TO WHAT WOULD BE OUR FIRST STAY EVER IN A 5 STAR HOTEL. THE TROOPERS APPEARED IN AN INSTANT OPENING DOORS, PULLING LUGGAGE FROM THE TRUNK, AND THEN TRANSFERRING THE 40 HANGERS WITH CLOTHING ONTO THE WHEELED "TWO STORY" [THEY LOOKED LIKE THAT TO US WHEN FULL OF THOSE NAKED HANGERS] LUGGAGE RACKS.

THUS, IN AN INSTANT, OUR LUGGAGE RACK, FULL OF "HANGERED" CLOTHING, SWISHING BACK AND FORTH, FOLLOWED US INTO THE HUGE LUXURIOUS LOBBY LIKE 4 YEAR OLDS HANGING ONTO THEIR MOMAS SKIRTS. EVERY WHERE WE TURNED, A BELL HOP WAS SURELY TRAVELING WITH US.

IT WAS THEN, IN THE LOBBY, THAT I NOTICED GUESTS THAT CHECKING IN AND OUT ALSO HAD A KEEN BELLHOP PUSHING THEIR WHEELED ONE STORY [OURS WAS TWO STORIES CAUSE EVERYONE STARED AT IT] LUGGAGE RACKS ON WHEELS. EVERYONE HAD RICHLY   ENGRAVED AND IMPRINTED IN MONEY NAMES LIKE GUCCI. YES, NO ONE EVEN NOTED THESE ROLLING CLOTHING RACKS HUNG  WITH THE ELEGANCE OF NAME BRANDS RATER THAN NAKEDNESS.   I FELT EMBARRASSMENT. IN FACT, WHEN ASKED BY A YOUNG MAN IF THE RACK WAS OURS, I SIMPLY IGNORED HIM AND ASKED TO USE THEIR "STRONG ROOM" [NO CREDIT CARDS NO ROOM SERVICE] TO REMOVE MY MONEY BELT SO I COULD OFFER  1500.00 BUCKS IN CASH SO WE COULD HAVE ROOM SERVICE.

AS SOON AS WE [WELL THE BELL BOY] HAD TRANSFERRED THE NAKED CLOTHING TO A CLOSET, AND WERE SETTLED IN OUR LARGE. 12 STORY [I ACTUALLY DO NOT RECALL THE FLOOR NUMBER] ROOM OVERLOOKING CENTRAL PARK, I ORDERED AN EXPENSIVE DINER.

THE WAITER ARRIVED WHEELING IN THE ROLLER TABLE. HE COOLLY AND EFFICIENTLY SET THE TABLE, LIFTED THE PLATE COVERS AND THEN, WITH WHITE TOWEL OVER HIS ARM, STOOD AT ATTENTION.

****************************************************************

IMG_1510.JPG (191318 bytes)

YOU CAN SEE ONE CREASE IN THIS CLOSE UP
THERE WERE MULTIPLE [30] CREASES
REMEMBER IT IS 6X6 FEET. WIDTH IS SLIGHTLY UNDER 6.

********************************************************************

I THOUGHT, WOW, THE WAITER IS GONNA WAIT? --PUN NOT INTENDED-- I HAD EXPERIENCE [REMEMBER GOOD FELLOWS]. I HAD DRIVEN UP FROM THE SOUTH WITH MY LADY & CHECKED IN AND ORDERED ROOM SERVICE IN ALL THE HI END HOTELS.  AT EVERY ONE THE TIP WAS IN THE BILL THAT I SIGNED ON..

SO, THERE WE WERE. A ROOM [SUITES WERE LIKE 1000.00] OVER LOOKING THE PARK. A ROLL IN WHITE CLOTH COVERED TABLE WITH ROSES. AN AWESOME SPREAD OF LOBSTER AND STEAK...AND... WITH OUR OWN  WAITER...

SOON, LO AND BEHOLD, THE WAITER MADE A "HUMPH" SOUND AND LEFT RATHER FAST.

I WAS STARVING, ET IT BUGGED ME THAT THE WAITER ACTED WEIRDLY. IT WAS THEN THAT MY LADY, NOTICING THE BLANK LOOK ON MY FACE,  SAID: "I DO NOT BELIEVE THE TIP IS INCLUDED IN THE BILL..."

WELL, I SAT THERE DOUBLY EMBARRASSED.. THINK ABOUT IT. THEY, THOSE OF THE STAFF, WERE MORE THAN TAKING IT UP. THE COUPLE IN THE RED ELD WITH .. "DID YOU SEE THAT?" THE CLOTHING?? ON A RACK? HE HAW HE HAW WHO WERE THEY? WHAT ROOM?

NOW I HAD A WAITER SAYING HE DID NOT GET A TIP....NOT EVEN 5 BUCKS!

I JUMPED UP, SNATCHED THE PHONE OFF THE CRADLE AND HIT THE MAITRE D BUTTON. THE MAITRE D ANSWERED  AND I SAID IN A MEASURED FLEETING TONE, , " I BELIEVE OUR WAITER DROPPED SOMETHING IN OUR ROOM, CAN YOU PLEASE SEND HIM UP."

WITHIN 10 MINUTES THE KNOCK AT THE DOOR INFORMED ME HE WAS THERE. I OPENED THE DOOR AND IN ONE SWIFT MOTION I "GRANTED" HIM. THAT'S RIGHT, G R A N T E D H I M!

I HANDED HIM A NICELY FOLDED 50 DOLLAR BILL WHILE SAYING "I THINK YOU DROPPED THIS"

WHAT HAS THIS STORY TO DO WITH THIS OFFER? WELL, EVERYTHING. THE NEXT DAY WE GOT UP, SHOWERED, DRESSED, AND TOOK THE SWIFT ELEVATOR   [THEY HAD REGULAR AND SWIFT ELEVATOR, THOUGH BOTH WERE FAST. ] TO THE AWESOME LOBBY.

AS WE STEPPED OUT IT WAS IMMEDIATELY APPARENT THE WORD GOT AROUND ABOUT THE 50 BUCK TIP. RATHER THAN SNICKERS ABOUT OUR SWINGING ON THE RACK, WE WERE TREATED LIKE ROYALTY; FOR 5 DAYS WE STAYED THE STAFF MADE SURE WE RECEIVED MORE THAN PROPER TREATMENT AND I MAID SURE MY TIPS WERE GENEROUS WITHOUT GRANTING ANYONE ELSE..

ON DAY 4 WE ASKED THE DOOR MAN --WHO HAD PROVIDED THE MOST RECOMMENDATIONS CONCERNING PLACES TO GO-- WHERE WE SHOULD GO TO GET SOMETHING TO REMIND US OF OUR TRIP --I GREW UP IN N.Y. BUT NEVER EVER WENT WHERE THE RICH AND FAMOUS WENT NOR, AS I STATED, RESIDED IN A HOTEL LIKE THE ONE WE WERE IN.

HE ASKED WHAT I WAS THINKING OF AND I SAID" WE COLLECT ANTIQUES"

HE GAVE THE CAB STAND A HAND SIGNAL, A CAB LEAPT LIKE A LIONESS ON A ZEBRA TO MEET US WITH HIS BACK DOOR RIGHT IN FRONT OF US. THEN, THE DOOR MAN OPENED THE DOOR, WE GOT IN, HE CLOSED IT AND STEPPED TO THE PLATE LIKE A RUNNER IN THE LAST INNING ON A  HOME RUN DRIVE. HE SPOKE TO THE CAB DRIVER AND GAVE HIM A HAND SIGNAL AND THE CABBY -I AM NOT KIDDING- PUNCHED IT. I RECALL HIM DRIVING LIKE ANDRETTI...

-STAYING IN THE "CITY" YOU DO NOT WANT TO DIVE YOUR OWN CAR

WITHIN 15 MINUTES WE ARRIVED OUTSIDE OF SOHO. AN AREA [BACK THEN] WITH AWESOME, EXPENSIVE ANTIQUE SHOPS. AFTER LOOKING FOR SEVERAL HOURS, WE WENT BACK TO A SHOP THAT ADVERTISED "ANTIQUES FROM THE ORIENT".

IT WAS A STORE OWNED BY A JEWISH FAMILY WHOM HAD TRAVELED BACK AND FORTH TO ASIA SINCE THE END OF WWII. MOST ITEMS WERE IN THE TOP PRICE RANGE. BUT, THIS FACT ASSURED US THE PRODUCT WAS GENUINE. WE PURCHASED THE TWO PAINTINGS AND A 6X6 FOOT $1800.00 CHINESE EMPEROR WITH HIS COURT IN  WATER COLORS ON RICE PAPER AND SILK VALUED BY THE PROPRIETER AT 2500.00. CONSERVATION TO REMOVE CREASES DUE TO STORAGE AND CLEAN DUST AND SOOT FROM THEPAINTING WITHOUT HAVING TO RE-TOUCH PAINT WAS 450.00/ [ACTUAL PRICE BEFORE OFFERRING 5 PAINTINGS WAS 650.00]

IMG_1484.JPG (175593 bytes)

I TRADED A CUSTOM RING FOR CUSTOM FRAMING --

THE CONTINENT OF AFRICA CARVED IN BLACK ONYX WITH THE AFRICAN NATIONALIST PARTY COLORS REPRESENTED WITH NATURAL GEMSTONES INLAID INTO ROSE GOLD BEZELS INLAID INTO THE ONYX.

THE RING WAS CARVED IN WAX, CAST AND NO MOLD MADE. IT WAS A ONE OF A KIND.

THEN I CAST THE RING IN 18KT HIGH YELLOW GOLD.

THE ONYX WAS CUT SHAPED POLISHED THEN DRILLED.

THEN THE THREE ROSE GOLD BEZEL MOUNTS WERE SET INTO THE DRILLED HOLES IN THE ONYX.

THEN THE THREE GEMS WERE MOUNTED IN THE ROSE GOLD BEZELS.

THEN THE ONYX WAS SET INTO  THE RING.

THE VALUE WAS STATED TO BE 1800.00/2500.00 IN 1979. PAYING CASH & BUYING 5 ITEMS MEANT A SUBSTANTIAL DISCOUNT OVERALL. BUT WE HAD THE MATERIALS AND THE FRAMER WAS NOT JUST AN ARTIST, HE BUILT FRAMES LIKE STUDS FOR A WALL AND HAND LACQUERED THEM.

TO PROVE THIS FACT, 5 DAYS AFTER RECEIVING THE FRAMED PAINTING, IT WAS ATTACHED TO THE ROOF OF DENISE'S MERCEDES FOR A 10 BLOCK TRIP TO OUR NEW LOFT. LOW AND BEHOLD IT FLEW OFF THE ROOF AND LANDED IN AN INTERSECTION WHERE A CAR RAN OVER IT.

LUCKY IT LANDED FACE DOWN. THE SPECIAL PLEXIGLAS WAS NOT EVEN SMUDGED NOR THE PAINTING DAMAGED, ONLY THE PAPER BACK --WHICH WAS AN ESPECIALLY GREAT JOB-- WAS TORN IN A FEW PLACES AND THE FRAME HAD TO BE ADJUSTED...

...QUALITY TO MATCH THIS MULTIPLE RICE PAPER AND SILK WATERCOLOR PAINTING IS WHY I BUILT THE RING!

IMG_1507.JPG (262530 bytes)

NO TWO CHARACTERS ARE SIMILAR. DETAIL IS AWESOME. COLOR RICH DUE TO THE FACT IT WAS FRAMED WELL, THAT IT WAS NEVER EXPOSED TO SUNLIGHT OR UV LIGHT. THAT THE LIGHTING WE USED WAS MADE FOR THIS JOB. AND, THE HEAVY MULTIPLE LAYERED RICE PAPER AND SILK CANVAS HOLDS THE COLOR.

IMG_1485.JPG (139734 bytes)

THE STEADFAST OF THE COLOR IS AMAZING.

IMG_1490.JPG (130504 bytes)

I TOOK THESE WITH LIGHTS OFF. THE PLEXIGLAS HAS SOME ABILITY IN LIMITING UV LIGHT, I DID NOT WANT TO USE THE UV PROOF PLEXIGLAS, IT DOES NOT SHOW THE COLORS LIKE YOU SEE. OR RATHER, IT LOOKS LIKE THE PIC ABOVE!!! PICS LIKE THESE ARE FROM POOR SHOOTING. NOT THE PLEXIGLAS 

IMG_1492.JPG (156666 bytes)

I HAVE NEVER DISCOVERED WHO THIS PAINTING
ACTUALLY REPRESENTS. IT HAS CHARACTERS AT THE BOTTOM.

CHARACTERS.jpg (12426 bytes)

CHINESE OR JAPANESE CHARACTERS AT BOTTOM

IMG_1493.JPG (164958 bytes)

NOTE THE WINGS ON HEADDRESS

IMG_1500.JPG (172243 bytes)

AGAIN, TERRIBLE PICS. BUT I AM EXHAUSTED. I TOOK 70 PICS, BUT THE NO LIGHT CLOSE UPS ON SLIGHT ANGLE DO NOT DO THIS FANTASTIC PAINTING JUSTICE.

IMG_1501.JPG (146786 bytes)

AGAIN, TERRIBLE PICS. BUT I AM EXHAUSTED. I TOOK 70 PICS, BUT THE NO LIGHT CLOSE UPS ON SLIGHT ANGLE DO NOT DO THIS FANTASTIC PAINTING JUSTICE.

IMG_1509.JPG (152192 bytes)

THIS IS A BETTER SHOT. STRAIGHT SHOOTING WITH A LITTLE LIGHT

IMG_1508.JPG (196383 bytes)

WHILE THIS WATER COLOR DOES NOT HAVE INTRICATE FINE DETAIL,
IT HAS A TEXTURE COLOR AND DETAILS THAT REVEAL THEM
SELVES. NO ONE MISSES THIS GREAT WORK NO ONE. IT SIMPLY
CATCHES ALL VISITORS IMMEDIATELY. THEY SEE IT AND STOP 

IMG_1507.JPG (262530 bytes)

ANOTHER SHOT UP CLOSE  THAT SHOWS THE UNIQUE FACES OF THE PLAYERS

IMG_1506.JPG (231820 bytes)

WEAPONS STAFFS AND OTHER ITEMS SEEM TO PORTRAY
THE STATUS AND POSITION OF THE PLAYERS

IMG_1504.JPG (197542 bytes)

I LIKE THIS CHARACTER IN BLUE AND GREEN.   WITH THE STAFF/SPEAR OR
COURT SIDE DEVICE. WITH THE BLACK GIZMO AT TOP.

IMG_1502.JPG (156006 bytes)

I LOVE THE MUSTACHE. ALSO THE ARTISTS WORK ON HIS FACIAL HAIR.

IMG_1511.JPG (236599 bytes)

MR. BLUE TOP WITH SNOW FLAKES LOOKS LIKE HE HAS SOMETHING TO SAY.. AND
ITS NOT GOOD WHILE MR. WHITE BEARD WITH EYES TO THE SIDE IS SAYING
HE WANTS TO KNOW MORE BUT IS AFRAID TO MOVE HIS HEAD.

IMG_1512.JPG (255677 bytes)

THE DETAILS IN THE ROBES AND OUTER WEAR IS STUNNING. SIMPLE YET
DETAILED IN A WAY THAT CAUSE US TO QUESTION WHAT IS HAPPENING.
IT ALLOWS PEOPLE TO SPEND HOURS DISCUSSING WHAT THE ARTIST MEANT
AND  SURELY WITH MR. CENTER BEING THE EMPEROR, WHO ARE THESE MINIONS/
ONE NOTE, SEEMS THEY ARE WEARING THE SAME SHOES.
ONE THING I LEARNED IN MY VAST STUDY OF HISTORY
SHOES CAN, IN MANY INSTANCES, IDENTIFY A PERIOD.. PERIOD

IMG_1514.JPG (108118 bytes)

SORRY, I  TRIED PIC WITH FLASH. THE IDEA WAS TO SHOW JUST HOW VIBRANT THESE COLORS ARE. AFTER ALL, WE HAVE HAD THIS STUNNING PIECE FOR 26 YEARS AND, THOUGH WE NEVER RECEIVED A DATE OF IT'S BIRTH, WE WERE INFORMED THE PREVIOUS OWNER, WHO PLACED IT ON AUCTION,  HAD IT FOR 37 YEARS.

IMG_1515.JPG (93428 bytes)

ANOTHER FLASHY PIC -OH WELL

IMG_1518.JPG (208319 bytes)

TRUST ME IT'S HANGING LEVEL. I GUESS PHOTOGRAPHING
WATCHES IS MUCH EASIER THAN 56 BY 6 FOOT PAINTINGS!

IMG_1519.JPG (186532 bytes)

STILL GOT IT LOOKING OFF CENTER
NO, I DO NOT HIRE MYSELF OUT AS A PHOTOGRAPHER
