Couldn't happen to better people - but it looks like there may be more to this story. PW won an defamation suit from this artist in 2006. Hmm

All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; John Masefield

I almost bought a Peter Maxx piece once; only to find out it was a print and not an original. Park West never mentioned it was a print.

On the Star Princess in 2003 the park west people got me. I bought several prints from them. However, these were not well known artist and I only bought them cause I liked them not for an investment. They are hanging up in my house. I do agree there was something fishy going on all the "real limited edition" Salvador Dali prints at the auction was a bit strange.

I feel bad for the poor Park West people. They have had such a hard time of it lately. We need to give them sympathy and buy their fine quality junk and then smile at being ripped off.

I have no sympathy for these people. I've seen their sales tactics and don't approve at their "investment" spiel.

Take care,
