Laminating commenced today, a team effort with 5 people so it only took about 20 minutes.

I was talking to my sis today. she has an exhibition coming up at the University of Virginia for some of her artwork. Being somewhat of a neophyte in the 'marketplace, she's perplexed as to how to price her oeuvres.
I mentioned my good mate roy and his valuation methodology.

If sis takes roy's price advice, and sells just one piece, i reckon she'll be on easy street...
