Come on Down, The Price is Right!

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Its quite big, 1.4m x 2.2 metres. Described as acrylic on canvas.

The bid of $75 is maybe the costs of materials. It's nowhere near the asking price...
Then the world has gone mad. So often this is the case with art. For the size, I would increase my guess to $195. Unless this piece is painted by someone of great credit, no person should pay more for it. If they do they are the victim of a sales conman.
The tag does not even mention the artist, just the gallery selling it.
Your guess is sensible. It is also miles away...

nice hue, but the apsara is missing
blue period, perhaps representing a breakup
or possibly a banksy-esque unfinished work, representing clear sky hope
or both?
I'll guess $2400

"I'll guess $2400..

Quick boy, run to the village and fetch me an easel, brush, paint and some canvas.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

Let's see.

It's a too large canvas for someone painting blurry shades of depressing greens.

My guess is the painter is someone thinking that bigger is better, and has no clues about the various shades of greens someone can obtain by mixing it with yellow, instead of white only.

There is about 20$ tops of canvas, depending if bought on street 14 artshops or at the Bookcenter,
and 5$ max of green + white + brush.

I can think of better ideas to decorate a wall with 25 bucks. Also for better investments for the sake of speculating (like buying a bottle of wine).

After that, maybe the guy is brave enough to propose it at 50 $, who knows.

Free would be too expensive anyway. I would need a donation to take it.
Nevermind, i'm not here anyway.

Ah Ha ! It's an Absulute Emerald. I guess the typo makes the kick of it.
Well it's just a 2200 $ try costing 26 $ ( pricetag included.)

the price is in the signature, as someone posted
some art is intrinsic, most is social

Ha ha, I didn't spot the typo. What a bunch of idiots...

I'm taking up painting. My first pic is going to be of a glass of Anchor Smooth, on a bar top. I'm going to call it "Beer in the morning"

I reckon there is a niche for bad painting, like kids paintings, but done by adults.
