  Check out my paintings with the tabs above.  Your comments are always welcomed.

The paintings are priced framed:  usually with a metal frame or a thin, dark wood frame.  Of course price adjustments may be made if you prefer to purchase without a frame...then the paintings will be shipped matted & shrink wrapped.

All of the originals are also available as small prints (5 x 7 image size, 9 x 12 matted size) that look really good framed and hung in multiples.  These small prints are economically priced at $20 each matted and shrink wrapped.  You may contact me about larger sized prints availability and pricing.
