Living Wage; $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 in a gallery.
Pay What You Want; Your choice plus S+H and a base of $100 that helps defray my costs in materials (paper, ink, shop, press, etc.) and shop space. Simply enter the amount you are willing to pay in addition to the ‘base’ cost in the cart.

EVERY EVENT IS A GIFT
Connect with me; call, visit, send me an eMail or text. Ask questions about the piece you are interested in. Ask about pricing and where you can see a work of mine. What is your preferred method of payment; check, bank deposit or cash, or time-options. Don’t feel shy about discussing the different purchasing options; Pay What You Want or Living Wage. I deLIGHT in sharing these gifts and the connectedness it brings.
A print is an object; a quality sheet of rag paper with ink on it. Of what value is it now; the paper is ruined after all‽ The value comes from it being a gift. A gift to the artist that is kept in motion passed along. Placing a arbitrary monetary value on this work and making the exchange in the form of an object is one way but not the only way to make the exchange.
I would prefer it being offered as it came to me, as a gift. Your interest in a work of mine is best exchanged in this way; in the manner of gift giving, as generosity, as a generosity that seeks to disolve the boundaries between us. You are supporting a living artist and voice in the community, and my work brings value to your living-space with deLight and Joy.
ART IS FOOD, REAL FOOD.
