I have 3 very different paintings I wish to sell but have no

Customer Question

I have 3 very different paintings I wish to sell but have no idea how and where to sell them to my best advantage. They are all originals: Watercolor by ***** ***** Lloyd (around 1900); watercolor by Rosalind Oesterle (mid to late 1900's); and an oil by Tykie Ganz of 2 dogs (contemporary). I live in Port Saint Lucie, Fl. Thank you, Cathy

I understand you are in a hurry so I will not ask you go through the tedious task of sending photos.Walter Lloyd (1845-1959) pieces have a range of $300 to $500 for originals.Rosalind Oesterle is still living (so this could not be a circa 1900 painting) and herwatercolors date from the 1980's through the present.These floral watercolors have a value range of $200 to $300.Tykie Ganz is a still living artist and this work has a value of range of $500 to $700for an original and $100 to $115.00 for prints/lithographs.You can offer these yourself on a site like Ebay or can also contact Port St Lucie and consign to them. I know you asked not to suggest a local auction,but these pieces are not of the caliber for the more prestigious auction houses.It is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer.
