|Joseph Sharp's Bawling Deer by Firelight|
One painting that I personally like is Kathryn Leighton's Around the Fire measuring 36 x 44 inches. It's estimate is $12,000-$16,000 which is a nice fair estimate. While the figure on the right doesn't compare in quality to the figure on the left, it's a good size painting, and similar paintings have gone for as much as $33,000. The most recent comparable was sold in 2008 by Bonhams in San Francisco for $20,400 that was the same size titled White Dog, Blackfeet. Another comparable painting sold in 2006 for $17,920 and it also had two figures and was the same size. Here's a nice biography if you want to read more about Kathryn Leighton.
