Artists have made reproductions of their work since the printing press came into wide use. Methods such as wood block, serigraph (screen printing), and intaglio are still done by artists. But they are very labor intensive and cost as much or more than some originals.
However, in recent years the giclee printing process has become affordable and widely available. A selected piece of artwork is computer scanned and reproductions are so true to the original color it is amazing. Not only can these be scanned onto flat surfaces such as paper and canvas, but they can be reproduced on curved surfaces such as mugs and steins, and onto cloth such as T-shirts and sweatshirts.
I now have 20 images available for reproduction. Some of these images are in my galleries on this site and are noted by the words REPRODUCTIONS AVAILABLE. So as you browse through my works, look for those words. I have listed each of these works below and the galleries on this site where the originals are shown.
Here are the prices for various sizes and forms of reproductions:
PRINTS ON CANVAS:
16×20, $110.00: 24×36, $210.00: 36×48, $420.00.

PRINTED TILES: 5X7, $14.95: 4X4, $9.95: (NOTE: smaller tiles have only a portion of the image on them due to size constraints).
ALL orders are shipped by the artist. It is possible to have orders drop-shipped but for individuals, I prefer to inspect every order myself. I also will sign and date every print on the back. Canvas reproductions will be signed and numbered on the front and back. Canvas reproductions are limited to 150 per edition unless otherwise noted. Reproductions on paper are neither limited nor numbered at this time. They are signed by myself after approval of the print.

All large prints are shipped without matting or backing, rolled in a tube. My friendly neighborhood postmistress will help me determine the charges and you will be contacted prior to sending so you know exactly what the charges are.
ALL SHIPMENTS ARE INSURED. I pay for insurance.
