I love this old chap...unmistakeably "you" despite all the influences you have very helpfully attached. Maybe one reason is that I'm a fan of Schiele (isn't Schilele an Irish weapon??? Sorry, making fun of your spelling). Schiele was a dangerous artist and so are you with this picture. Can I buy it please...the last piece I bought from you remains with a certain I Ching fanatic! I'm serious...would love to add it to my collection.
Cheers matey...John x

Hmm...my spelling...uh oh. And you want this piece? I'd have thought you'd like something winged & less violent. Wanna commission something? Otherwise...of course. I'd be happy to sell it to you. We should chat & haggle :)

Haggle? That's so demeaning. I would trust you to ask a fair price and as long as no dealers get a 40% cut then all we need to talk about is the best way to transfer the cash and package the goods! Sounds like a drug deal LOL.
