"When you buy from an independent artist you are buying more than just a painting or a novel or a song. You are buying hundreds of hours of experimentation and thousands of failures. You are buying days, weeks, months, years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are buying nights of worry about paying the rent, having enough money to eat, having enough money to feed the children, the birds, the dog. You aren’t just buying a thing. You are buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a private moment in someone’s life. Most importantly, you are buying that artist more time to do something they are truly passionate about; something that makes all of the above worth the fear and the doubt; something that puts the life into the living."

ART IS FOOD, REAL FOOD.
Be Generous & Support a Living Artist

I consider my responses (maps, prints, books and broadsides) the result of real place-time experiences of the Other as I-Thou, to be gifts. As gifts they have no value within the market economy. When you purchase from me we are engaging the gift with the market economy. Prints are signed, stamped from toMAKE™ Press & Editions, and numbered to indicate the size of the edition. Edition sizes are between 5 and 15.

Maps and prints are priced as they would be in a gallery at $900 US unframed. This is what I consider a living wage for my time, my practice, my experience-effort, cost of materials, and the “gift” or inspiration of “art” that occurs outside the market economy.

$900 per original limited edition map or print. Includes S+H in North America. This is the default price in the shopping cart and the price you would expect in a gallery.

Art takes nothing from the world; it is a gift and an exchange. It leaves the world nurtured. The arts, learning grandmotherly wisdom, and practicing a heart of compassion, will confound markets, rattle empires, and open us up to the actually existing human and nonhuman world.

Pay what you determine to be the value of the map or print. This is the value you determine for yourself. Add $150 to cover the production costs I have incurred plus any S+H. Because only selected options are included in the eStore you may need to contact me to arrange your pricing selection.

You can read about my practice of right map making . . . this should help inform you in making your decision as to the economic exchange we are making.

So this is what generosity does. It makes your mind more spacious and creates good connection with the people around you. It dissolves the boundaries that otherwise would keep the happiness from spreading around.
