Recently I purchased paintings I could not really afford but there were several reasons. I was a gallery owner for several years—both on-line and store front. I loved the artists I represented–still do. One of my favorites was and is Steven Chandler. It is his works I purchased. I had actually sold some of them to the gallery owner I purchased them back from. —-To be a happy, successful gallery owner, it must not be about money. It must be about the art—loving the art and the person who created it. You, the gallery owner must want that artist to be successful. You must want him/her to grow and it is your duty to try and lend a helping hand.—Equally when you sell a piece, again it is not about money, but it is about the joy of seeing your customer happy—seining the painting on their wall!—Steven Chandler’s paintings are winners. Yes I own a few and maybe someday I will even own more–hope so——-Lastly there are other artists I want to buy their work back but my funds are very limited so I cannot—I was sickened when I bought a painting I had previously sold for $150. (not a Chandler) back on eBay for 99 cents. That should NEVER happen. No, I will never embarrass that great artist by revealing the identity! —olRoff
