Somebody, an artist or a gallery owner, asked me recently about taxes pertaining to art works, artists and art galleries. And it dawned upon me that its such a fuzzy topic in the minds of people of our community. Although I am not an authority on tax related matters, I stand in this interesting position of a person who has studied finance and is trying to establish himself as an artist. So here I am, trying to keep…Continue

Stages from start to finish...from top left side to bottom right hand corner...and the final version.
