I've decided, for better or for worse, to change the way I authenticate my paintings. I've noticed a few artists who employ a monogram in preference of the more-traditional signature. Personally, I found them more discrete, so I made my my own. However, I've been warned by one fellow artist friends that the monograph could be received poorly by galleries etc… just my luck! Oh well.
