Email Blast #6: New Purchases: Since I am no longer doing print fairs, all new items will be offered first in this fashion. No one knows what they new items are until the day of upload and all people on our email list get an equal shot at the new prints. Upload will always be at 1pm Eastern time on the designated day so all can have an equal chance.

These blasts are what will happen when I compile a critical mass of new items. I will be sending these out a number of times per year. This is in lieu of yearly catalogs and will give all on my mailing list a more or less equal shot at new items. **IF YOU ARE NOT ON MY EMAIL LIST YOU CAN SIGN UP AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE (**We never share, sell or otherwise expose your email address).

All items are hand signed by the artist unless specifically noted otherwise.

All items are properly matted and unframed unless otherwise noted. All defects, minor and major, are noted.

Please See our "Conditions of Sale" page for information on shipping, guarantees, etc.
