ART FRAUD on ebay & even Michaels!!

PLEASE do REAL, hardworking artists a favor and be aware of the rampant ART FRAUD on ebay & now even at Michaels!!

Check out this new blog sent to me by a fellow artist:

I also wrote a GUIDE on ebay last year on How To Spot a FAKE Oil Painting. Click here. It seems that the problem is only getting worse as computer programs such as Photoshop make it VERY easy for anyone to take a photo, alter it, and make it look like not only an oil painting, but a watercolor, drawing, charcoal, you name it! If something looks 'a little too good to be true', chances are it is a FAKE!

  1. Thanks for posting this. I worry about this all the time.

  2. It just is so frustrating for us real artists who are trying to make an honest living. I cannot understand how people do not see these fraud artists for who they are...if something looks too good to be true, it is fake!
