Artist Keltie Ferris... Painting Breaks the $100,000 Mark!

So for all those fans of amazing women contemporary painters.. you had good reason to celebrate last night.  At the Christies Afternoon sale yesterday, one of the US young women painters crossed a major hurdle. The $100,000 mark for a secondary market painting! WOW.. and it couldn't happen to a nicer more talented gal.

Congrats to Keltie Ferris.. he paintings have been an impressive few years of powerful color expressions. She's had some strong success in the gallery and museum world, but yesterday who entered an eleite club of young living artists selling for over $100,000. It's a group generally reserved for only hot young ego maniacs guy painters.. so it's refreshing to see Keltie's success!
