Purchasing a piece of original artwork for yourself or as a gift is no small decision because it’s generally no small expense. Prints are less expensive, but even if the print is excellent quality and identical dimensions of the original you don’t see the live work, the layers of paint or pastel, the actual lines and strokes, the thing another person made by hand. You see not only the image that attracted you, but also an appreciation of what the artist did to create the work. In an essential way, you share a bond with that creator, and they with you. Its a very different relationship with the thing that hangs on your wall.
I price pieces as affordably as I can considering the time and materials that go into it, and I do most of my own framing which is a savings as well, I want others to be able to see and appreciate what I’ve done on that deeper level, and I also want to be able to create more works.
All originals are framed, and include the cost of shipping or, if you’re local, I typically deliver the piece myself and will hang it for you.
