Description & History

This is a 12x9" print.  You may select a Limited Edition Print or an Open Edition Print.  Limited Edition prints are signed and numbered by the artist.  You will receive the next number available.  Each Limited Edition is ten prints only.

Please Note:  'The Frances' is printed on Sommerset Velvet 255 gsm certified archival paper, which lends itself well to the velvety texture of the drawing.  Limited Edition Prints # 1 - 3 of 'The Frances' have already been sold.  #4 is pre-matted for gallery sale.  This accounts for its higher price.  All other prints are unmatted.

History of the Original:  This is one of my favorite pieces.  It's the first time I managed to capture a piece in photorealism, and it was made on aged paper that I inherited from my grandmother.  My grandmother, Frances, loved flowers, and I inherited my love of drawing from her, so it seemed only-fitting to name this one, "The Frances".  This original found a home with a lovely couple from out of town.  They bought it from a gallery show, and it never made it back home after its first showing.  Original: sold.  

  • Commonly Asked Questions

What will I receive?

Limited Edition Print Orders: A matted print that has been signed and numbered. It will arrive in a resealable plastic bag, supported by backer board, and will include a signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity. The print will be shipped flat between two pieces of cardboard for its protection.

Open Edition Print Orders: A standard print on lighter weight paper. It will arrive in a resealable plastic bag, supported by backer board, and will be shipped flat between two pieces of cardboard for its protection.

What is the difference between a Limited Edition and an Open Edition?

An Open Edition Print is a standard print, usually printed on standard archival paper. There are an unlimited number of these prints available.

A Limited Edition print is hand-signed and numbered by the artist, and is usually printed on heavier weight archival paper, specifically selected for each piece. Our Limited Edition Prints are only available in a run of 10.

If I order a Limited Edition print, how do I know what number I will receive?

If you click the 'pill' that says "Limited Edition" on it, it will turn black. All prints currently sold are shown as pills with a line through the title. The next available print is represented by the last pill in a line. When all 10 prints have been sold, the option to purchase Limited Edition prints will be removed entirely.

What is an Artist Proof? What is an Enhanced Edition?

An Artist's Proof is print test. It is ordered by an artist prior to finalizing a print run, and it may or may not contain errors. Like a penny that has been struck twice, sometimes an Artist Proof can be more valuable than a perfect print. Artist's usually reserve their proofs for friends and family.

An Enhanced Edition Print is a specialty item, created by coloring, or otherwise altering a print. Foiled prints, painted prints and prints touched in colored pencil are all examples of enhanced prints. We do not currently offer enhanced prints.
