Hey guys I have a quick question. I just picked up a Chuck Byron original at a estate sale for the late Fred Hall. Back is signed with the following.

If not for the Halls
I would not be here!
Thank you so very much!!!
I love you.
Sign.(Chuck Byron)2001

The painting was done in 2000.
The painting is of the Arch at Cabo(El Arco)
Are there any Byron collectors here? I will put up some pics when I get a chance. Tried calling the Gallery but no one was available. Any input appreciated.

Thanks,
David.

You imposter!

How ya' been David?

That does sound like a score.

P.S.: I just booked our Manitoba trip. We may have room for one more if you're intersted. I figure it's going to cost about $1300 all told for 4 days of epic duck, goose, and sharptail hunting.

Hey Stan, Bills correct I am just trying to figure out the value of the painting. Its currently on the wall and looks real nice where its hanging.

Thanks for the comeback.

Whatever the value David . .
The longer you can hang on to it the more it might be worth.
So do not use the back for a cutting board. :eek:

David,
I found this on the internet - a Chuck Byron auctioned for $5,400 - it has the arch in the background.


From the Cabo Tuna Jackpot 2001:
"The highlight of the evening turned out not to be the cash awards, since people already knew which three teams would win money. Nay, it was a raffle of a Chuck Byron original painting commissioned for the Tuna Jackpot.
Proceeds were to go to the building of a kitchen at a Cabo orphanage for kids, many of whom were orphaned by the recent hurricane. In spirited bidding, $5,400 was raised..."

Prints aren't worth much, signed prints are a little more, but signed originals can vary greatly. If it was truly "Worth" $5,400 prior to his passing, it would certainly be worth more now. Heck, that frame looks to be a few hundred bucks by itself. You should probably look into getting it professionally appraised and insured.

At any rate - Congratulations on the great find! You can sniff out the good catch on dry land too!
