It’s close to being affordable…..

I tell you it is a great investment if you like his art and have cash to spare (which I no longer do after my 16 concerts!) However, I bought (and love) the print of Mick with Harmonica about two years ago and it has already doubled in value.

it’s more like “Made to Sell.”

I’ve got three of his limited edition prints, all of which I hasten to add I bought because first and foremostly I really like looking at them, the “investment” aspect of buying them I can’t say I reallly care about … although of course I’m vaguely aware that they invariably do go up in value I suppose. The first one I got was Conversation Piece, then Wild Horses, and most recently the self portrait called Wah Wah Ronnie. I must admit that a lot of his stuff I really do NOT like, but there are a select few pieces that do have that “something”. Conversation Piece I think is the best depiction of Mick and Keith that Ronnie’s done, maybe with the exception of those pencil “sketches” of them all at his place Sandymount in Ireland.

Anyway, a tip (albeit an obvious one). If you’re buying, buy in the States and take advantage of a weak US dollar. Don’t be a mug and buy in the U.K.

Buy because you like the piece not as an investment, you enjoy it more that way.

Well, I don’t necessarily consider those sale prices.

I can speak with authority on the “Forty Licks” piece. I have been looking for that off and on for a number of months and it COMMONLY goes for 8,500 and 7,500, so 8,500 is no sale price. I have seen it once or twice for 10K, specifically at Pop International Art Galleries in New York.

I was offered it for 6,500 in San Francisco. Let’s just say that I ended up getting it for quite a bit less than that recently in Denver.

And get this, and I am serious, the glass over the piece is actually heavy PLEXIGLASS ! ! ! Reason alone enough to buy it!!

How ironic, “Decades 60s” features 70’s Stones.

Is this the same one Ronnie wants $3250 for: [cgi.ebay.com] ?

Good luck with that.

Ron Wood’s choice of subject matter has often been the Rolling Stones. And himself. But IMO — especially because his technique is mediocre at best — to avoid appearing egotistical and self-undulgent, Ronnie’s interpretation must be personal and/or introspective and/or sincere.

But unfortunately, his art is none of these things, IMO. Ron’s artistic interpretations always get framed by this “hero-worship” thing that’s really merely just trying to copy photographs created by others: rock music fans and fabulous photographers, He then adds to this series of paintings. He does other rock icons, like Morrison and the Who. Some of these are worse than others. And animals.

Perhaps Ronnie sensed a need to do other subject matter, when he painted his nature series. Don’t get me wrong. Everyone can have a hobby. Ron Wood’s hobby is painting. So he’s not a great artist. But I do think Ron Wood is a great musician and he is in the world’s greatest rock n roll band, the Rolling Stones,

Ronnie has all the artistic skill of an average first year illustration student. His drawings and paintings are NOT art in the literal sense. An “investment” perhaps, because of his name, but art? Nah.

I have “Charlie with Sax” and “Mick with hamonica” and they have both doubled in price

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

i’m not an art “snob” or “expert” or “collector” or anything like that
but I appreciate seeing something that evokes emotion, makes me smile
or looks good on my wall. Ron’s art (Rock Musicians) does this for me.
I’m certain that it would appeal to me even if he wasn’t RON WOOD of THE ROLLING STONES.
(in fact…to me that is the drawback. I would love to own a couple of them. The one
called “Conversation Piece”…& the Flat Bed Truck piece too…even if it was
done by a no-name artist. It is his added celebrity-artist value that puts the value out of range for me.)

re: copying pre-existing photography…………i agree with you.
it’s less impressive knowing that sometimes he’s merely interpreting someone else’s art…
…whether it’s a photo of Mick or a Bengal Tiger. Obviously I’d feel
differently if Ron took the photos himself…but obvously he can’t
photograph the Stones “in concert” while he’s playing guitar.

He doesn’t always work from photos. (see Biggest Bang dvd – painting the ABB stage from the “B-stage”. And he also INTERPRETS pre-existing photos or creates montages. (ex. Flat Bed Truck)

It’s only ROCK & ROLL ART…but I like it.

actually he’s a world-class landscape artist, but that side seems to get little publicity.

only if “world-class” is some kind of universal badge you get by taking a basic test, like a yellow belt in the martial arts.

Crikey! Does it really evoke emotion for you?

£270 for the Florida Panther! Ha Ha! Looks like he cut it out of a cereal packet! Don’t give up the day job Ron.

Not interested in the animal stuff either…like I said, I do like some of
the R Stones (& other music legends) prints. Some are much better than others…

re: “Crikey! Does it really evoke emotion for you? “

yes….happiness is an emotion. wanna buy one for me?
