Re: ET&WNC painting print, is there really a market for this?

Hi Don -
Both of your messages..... your initial intro and now this one....... have shown up in my inbox today.
I'm not sure why the first one floated around in cyberspace for several days. Maybe it got 'stuck in the tube' and needed this one to push it on through.
At any rate, welcome to the group...... you'll find an answer to most any question you've ever wanted to ask about the ET&WNC here. Chances are you'll find questions that you didn't know you wanted to ask until now as well.

Hey guys,

It's me, Don Coker, not John, in the flesh. Wow, brother Ray, thanks for the endorsement! Well, I am a newbie to this group, but a member of many others. After I posted my painting to ebay I got an email from "Guv" Rick Perry, my neighbor across the Chattahoochee River, stating that y'all were talking about my painting on this list. So I figured I'd join in. I posted my intro a couple days ago, but apparently it didn't post.

To clear up some misconceptions, as I stated, I am Don, not John. John is a friend of mine and lives in Colorado, I in Georgia. We are not directly related, but we figure we are down the tree a ways. All the Coker's came into America from England in the late 1700s at Charleston. It is pretty odd that two guys named Coker are both artists and love the same subject! But here we are.

As for the painting, it is indeed an original oil painting on canvas, not a print. I have not made prints of it as of yet, but may in the future. If I do I'll let this list know. I finished the painting a few months ago and it is based on the photo in my friend, Mal Ferrell's book, The Tweetsie. Other than that, I am a Tweetsie fan as well and look forward to getting to know you guys, and to clear up one more thing, Guv Rick ain't such a bad feller once you get to know him.

If y'all have any other questions or comments, you can contact me at CokerArt@....

Glad to be here!
