Salman Rushdie

Salman Rushdie , the murderous attack on this significant author is an outrage. As is the claim that the motive is unknown.

Signatures

Frickers, artist, painter

Signature, does it ‘matt’ er? Gordon Frickers, artist, an article about the value of signatures.

Artist to artist, here’s some questions and answers of interest to all painters on the ‘Art Explorers With Alice Sheridan’ page.
Alison Blynn Gaiman asked “I’m getting some paintings framed (paper under glass). I don’t want to sign my work on the paper, and the framer said a lot of people sign their names on the matte.
Do any of you do this? If so, do you use your normal signature? Or… do you have a different signature just for your art?”
I replied:
