    i painted this this year, it was bought from me personally for $140 and I was amazed to come across this on ebay(beings it was listed just hours ago!), for $99 hes losing 40 bucks, i guess the guy dont have room for it or is a reseller hoping to get more, anyway, what do you think about it?

    edit: should i buy it back if i can get it for under $140? lol

    A friend of mine is sat with me..all we could make out was 'Butterfly/ E with a line through it' 'love' and then some form of weird name like Ahmed.

    Personally I would buy it back as long as you are making a profit.

    Then you can sell it again :)

    yea but i doubt you could make a profit off of it because if noone bids over 140 dollars then they probably won't bid over 140 for you

    maybe instead of just buying it back, you should paint/sell more

    How come some of you don't know what it says? look at the buildings, and look at the heart....All of you Unitedstatians are that patriotic in which the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about a city would be New York and when you would see a city and a heart the first thing that would come to your mind would be "I love New York" since you repeat it over and over in t-shirts and other stuff...so I don't think you guys don't know what it said, I just think you guys like to be condescending. Other than that, the letters, if analyzed closely make the phrase clear. It's a good painting. I say you buy it back and if you want you can sell it again for 140 and hey you may find it for less again on e-bay.

    if your parents have an ebay account, go for it. I actually miss this painting now, it matched my walls nicely. I can paint you one if you are really interested and we can make a sale through paypal/money order

    That depends on how much you miss it, regardless you still make a profit at least having the person "rent" it from you. :)

    Good work, very talented.

    heh, yea i do miss it. but i can always remake it, although nothing ever comes out the exact same way, it could come out better :). I need to come up with better phrases, eventhough "I love new york" sells like hotcakes

    Excuse me for not being a 'unitedstatian..' .
    Frankly, I hate graffiti. And truthfully? I didn't know what it said, I had no bloody idea. To me, it's squiggles.

    And to me, a bunch of squiggles doesn't jump out and scream 'I LOVE NEW YORK'. I don't know if it does that to you 'unitedstatians' but I'm English.

    1. Americans speak American English, which is not exactly the same as English. Whereas I speak Standard English.
    2. It doesn't matter whether It's in the lanuage I speak. I can't read scribble.

    And another point. The tall buildings in the background don't give it away to me. For all I know it could be Moscow, I've never been to America, neither do I wish to..

    What you said really wound me up, and I'd appreciate it if you didn't go speaking of false accusations.
