There's been a crow/raven (painting) mania going on a certain auction site from mid December until just last week. Works that were found suitable by the high bidders received up to mid three figures for some paintings as small as ACEO's (2.5" x 3.5"). Not a shabby situation for some very happy artists. The market flattened when reality came calling to the supporters of this craze. We bless them for the angel's wings they briefly wore, and the monetary blessings they bestowed on the worthy, the timely and the lucky!
My commentary on the end of the(se) good times:
