Richard Loving (American, b. 1924) has been consistently selling for a good number of years. One of his works was in Marlon Brando's personal collection, and was sold at Christies. Blouin reports that 10 of his works sold between 2004 and 2009 had an average price of $900.00, and one was sold for $1200.00. His work has appealed to me for years. This is my favorite. I've included a bit about the artist's life at the end of the listing.
