Fine Art Prints

I have added two of the detail prints from original artwork to the website. they are available unframed and unmatted. They will be rolled in archival barrier paper and shipped in a tube. I have had a request for matted and framed pricing and I am working on it now. I will be dropping some off to be matted tomorrow, hopefully.  I am going to try and keep it to standard sizes so I can offer a selection of framing options, if I offer them at all.

Why Details - I chose to capture some of the more interesting details from my paintings and enhance them digitally to create new works. These of course can only be offered as prints, and the original stays as is a one of a kind piece. I do have some prints available on another website but will be phasing this out with the end of the contract year.  In the future the only prints available will come from details of original works. They will all be made to order, dated and signed.

There has always been a squirmy comfort level with creating multiple prints from original paintings. I get that photographers do this as a standard practice, but painters have traditionally been put off by this process. At least the painters I have known over the years. People who make a living off their original art.  It isn't a good or bad thing that leads to a particular judgement on my part. I understand the reasoning behind both approaches to the situation. Two of my favorite pieces in the world are prints of the Metamorphosis Series created by my friend, the late painter January Knoop. I have these in my bedroom and look at them every single day. I have looked at them every single day for at least twenty years. I do not know if her family and or Estate are still selling these prints but they are well worth looking into.


The prints that I now have available are an enhanced detail from "Plenty" and one from "Lizzies Dream"
