What does this mean?

Dear Dottie,

Greetings and thank you for submitting images of this watercolor an ink original painting. I love the looseness of the paint, it's right in keeping with the other work you have on Fine Art America. I find your COA delightful and personal, It reminds me of the types of COAs one sees on early 20th c. and earlier pieces.

In my research, I could not find a reference of your work being offered at public auction before. This makes it tricky to evaluate as it must be looked at from a decorative standpoint which is subjective. In general, public auction prices can be 1/3rd of your gallery prices, that holds for many currently producing and emerging artists.

For now, my estimate for your work is between $50 and $100USD but only because a basis for comparison has not yet been established. If you have any questions regarding this, I am at your disposal.

Sincerely,

Erin-Marie
