has any one heard of Waldo Saavedra? i have a painting signed by him named  "Regina" that was done back in 2006 in los ....., jalisco, mexico tried to find some stuff about him but what i found out was that  he is cuban and everything been written in spanish about him. i found a web page and plan on trying to contact him to see the story about the painting. i recieved it from my uncle whom worked for a person that is rich beyond belief, the story is that it was  purchased  from the artist for $14000 u.s. wondering if there were any truth to it. also wanted to know who was the painting about. i will try  to attach photo later.

Interesting, but we are not appraisers nor art historians. Your asking a lot from us. You will need to do research on your own. If you do art work yourself and would like to share your work or offer advice to others great. Join in.

It you sign up for Sotheby's email list, you will have access to Artnet, and can see if his work has been sold at auction.

I guess there  is just  one mistake about the year,    it was made probably in 2004,  do have any other concern?...

Canvas oil paintings are a great way to do up a home or office because they add a lot of beauty to a room or space where they’re placed. Art reproduction is a great way to get the very best looking artworks a nice price.The only way you can make sure whether particular canvas oil paintings are the best ones for your room is to utilise PC software to simulate the look of the room in which the painting will be placed.

ReyReyna: At least in Spain your painting should be worth A LOT! It was painted in Guadalajara, Jalisco, México by hiperrealist cuban artist Waldo Saavedra. What he is most famous for is for painting a nude portrait of now princess Letizia of Spain, who married prince Felipe. During her younger years she lived here in Guadalajara and was a close friend to the artist. I don't think either one of them imagined she would be in the royal family in the future. So hold on to your painting!
