Hello

I came across your page, and I would like to speak with you.

I am not selling this painting, it is not mine, I am not the auctioneer. Our company facilitates online bidding through ebay live auctions, we are a technology provider.

The auctioneer selling the painting is called Auction Brokers, and they are in Phoenix , Arizona .  I am happy to put you in touch with them if you think this is a fake.  I am not an art expert, and have no ability to comment on the painting.  We simply are managing the bidding process and filtering the email inquiries for them.

If you do think this is a fake, please let me know.  We donít want anything to do with that, we simply were helping their internet bidding process.

Can you kindly take my name off of your page, I donít want to be associated in a capacity that I have no connection with.

Thank you
Warren

Hello again

We had the lots taken down.  Again, we are simply a service provider to facilitate online bidding, and have no connection with the painting.  Auction Brokers LLC , owned by Boris Baich , are the company selling this painting.  I can put you in contact with them if you would like to discuss authentication.

I did not give them permission to use my name, however it seems to give you the impression I am the seller.

Please remove my name from your website, I am not the seller, and should not be damaged over this. You can accurately represent the seller as Auction Brokers and Mr. Boris Baich.

Regards

Warren Styles
