    First, I have to like it.

    This is not bad at all, I like it.

    Prices seem not exorbitant given what I see from other non-Dylan painters of skill and some reputation (as painters).

    I expected the worst, but actually I like it. The prices aren't crazy like I expected either.

    John Mellencamp is a heckuva painter too. IIRC he showed Dylan some of his work and Bob encouraged him to start showing it publicly. Now he's more artist than musician, and is a bit more talented than Dylan.

    He pretty talented I'd say....and the prices for a hand painting are not overly alarming.... fine art has always been priced from $0 to (insert redonkulous price here) depending on subjectivity.
    So $2400 for a pretty nice painting by a celebrity isn't hugely out of bounds...

    It's a print, not a painting.

    Divide the prices by 10 and I'd be all over one. I think the prices are right in the range of what this type of thing goes for but I'm not the market demographic.

    I wouldn’t pay a nickel for it, but if I had one I’d try to sell it for as much as I possibly could.

    Original Dylan lyric sheets are probably the only thing for which I would consider opening the wallet. Darn good painter though! That’s pretty cool.

    Did he paint the originals from a blank canvas or is he stylizing photographs with paint?

    When I see this kind of thing I get reminded of Miles Davis “little paintings” that could be had for about $500 which was a bridge too far for me at that time. After his death they jumped to around 5K.

    Looks like autographed albums are fetching 200-300 bucks, rather have one of those

    Dylan is one of the 7 wonders of the world....but prints are worthless and autographs are silly.

    pass, pass & pass.
