If an original piece is available, the price and a "Purchase the Original" button are displayed on its detail page. An original piece which isn't available displays no price.
All original pieces are single- or double-matted and simply framed in colors I have chosen to complement the drawing, and protected by museum glass or museum acrylic to provide 99% UV filtering and minimize reflections. The listed price includes this framing but does not include tax or shipping cost.
If giclee prints of a piece are available, the sizes, prices and buttons "Go to Frame Shop" and "Buy Print Only" are displayed on the detail page. Choose the "Go to Frame Shop" button if you'd like to select a mat and frame for your giclee print and receive it fully assembled under glass. Choose the "Buy Print Only" button f you'd like to purchase only the giclee print for the listed price. The listed price does not include tax or shipping cost.
Blank 5"x7" note cards are available from the Note Cards gallery on the Gallery page. Click the "Add to Cart" button to purchase a set. If you are interested in cards of an image which is not explicitly shown as a card, please contact me and I will be happy to produce them at no additional cost. All cards are printed on high-quality heavy card stock and come with matching envelopes. The listed price does not include tax or shipping cost.
Commissions and Portraits
I am available to do commissions and portraits, working from photographs provided by the client or taken by me. Digital format is preferred; however, good quality printed photographs can be used. If you send a printed photograph, please provide a self-addressed stamped envelope for your photograph's safe return.
After receiving the photograph, I will make a recommendation on the size of the commission/portrait based upon the preferred medium, the quality of the reference photograph and the composition.
All drawings are done in graphite or colored pencil on high-quality drawing paper. Cost is determined by the preferred medium, drawing size, complexity of the scene, and for portraits, the number of people portrayed. As a baseline, figure on approximately $3 per square inch for a graphite drawing/portrait and $6 per square inch for colored pencil. The price difference is due to the significantly greater time required for colored pencil.
Shipping costs are additional. Sales tax is applicable in some states.
