For sale are some portraits done by speed painter Rob Surette. Surette has appeared on multiple television shows showcasing his talents. He creates these portraits in minutes, and you're not sure what he's painting until he's finished. He has appeared on Oprah, the Today show multiple times, the Tonight Show, and several others. This is really a unique medium, and while I wouldn't consider it fine art, it's definitely unique work done by someone who has some recognition.

Here are some examples of his appearances:


Here is a portrait he did using push pins, valued at over $250,000:

The paintings that are for sale are in one of his largest canvas sizes, 5.5' x 4'. They are acrylic on canvas.

On his website, this size sells for $2,800 here:

The portraits are of some iconic historical figures:

- Abraham Lincoln
- Albert Einstein
- Ludwig van Beethoven
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

I honestly have no idea what to price them at. Since the artist asks $2,800 a piece on his website, I suppose I'll start at half that, $1,400 a piece and take whatever I get for a best offer. I don't mind breaking up the set either.

I suppose I'll bump this now. I decided to keep these and hang them in my house back in '15 but I'm remodeling and am going to let go of them. PM me if interested.
