Thank you for your question.

Are these prints? If so what size are these?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Well I don’t really know the difference between portrait and print tbh
They are limited editions of various sizes
The largest being:
A Midsummer Nights Dream which is framed at 80 x 80 cm
The others are smaller
Tempest 1 and 2
Red Ribbons 1 and 2
Fire dance 1 and 2
Expert:  Glenda B. Appraiser replied 7 days ago.

If they are limited Editions then they are prints, not an oil painting.

After researching I found the Joy Kirton-Smith framed portraits have an estimated value on the current market for an average of 300.00-325.00 GBP each

If you plan on selling. There are some great sites you can sell from.
Facebook Marketplace is how most people post things for sale locally.

Etsy is a great site

There is also craigslist locally which is free. Ebay is a great option. It does reach a lot of people, but items tend to sell a little lower on there If you do decide to try Ebay, I recommend setting reserves.


I would be happy to help you with any additional items you may have.
