COMMISSION WORK

I have done commissions of pets as well as homes. Here is the brochure information if you would like to have a watercolor and ink painting of your home. *It looks better printed and tri-folded, but you get the idea! The above brochure is 2 pages (use the arrow at the top to see page 2)

 

PAINTINGS AND PRINTS

Some of my paintings are available as originals, some as archival giclee prints. By offering prints they are more affordable.  I have my prints made on 2" deep gallery canvas and wrapped with black sides. It gives the effect of framing without the cost. If you prefer an edgy comtemporary look, my paintings look terrific printed on a flat metal base (and can be wiped clean--perfect for bathrooms or kitchens). Every print is in a limited edition and comes with a certificate of authenticity for insurance purposes. Archival quality is a promise. Some of the images available are pictured below. If you see a painting you wish to have as a print, let me know and I can send you pricing. Of course, the art print does not have the large copyright watermark on it! Note the "Sunflower Celebration" and "Bostick's Produce" are also available on fine art paper as giclee prints.

 

Another option to enjoy my art work is my calendar--it has 12 images to enjoy. Check the Calendar Tab.

 

PHOTOGRAPHS

All photographic images can be sold as photo prints on paper or on gallery-wrapped canvas with black sides. I don't wrap the image around the edges of the canvas...it destorts the original composition. Also, the black sides give the impression of a frame without the expense.

 

CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY

Each piece of art purchased comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. This certificate includes the image, title, size, media, history of exhibitions and awards, price and signature. If it is a print it will designate the numeral holding of your print. [In print editions you will see two numbers. One designates what particular number of print you own, the other is the total number of prints to the edition. This means it is a limited edition. For instance, if your print arrives with the designation "25/300" it means you have the 25th print from a total of 300. The value of the numbers indicate the value of your print in that edition. The lower the first number, the more valuable it is. Also, an edition of 300 makes each print more valuable than an edition of a larger amount of prints.]

 

Pricing on my art workcosts less when purchased directly from me. Shows require commission percentages. None of the prices include shipping and handling. Any canvas print is simply $100 more than it costs to have produced. It is a very popular and affordable way to enjoy my art on your walls.

History: The agave is near and dear to my heart. Not only because of the tequila it produces but because of the wonderful palmate growing habit and the geometric dashed lines that almost make a harlequin pattern on the leaves. This is the third in a series of Agave. The second one appears as the banner on my website and the first one appears on the home page behind one of the navigation tiles.
