You can't hide if your message is on your back.

There's something about this protestor standing up and putting the message on her cloak that is just powerful. This was early in, when the police were lashing out at the protestors, so just standing there was an act of courage.

The painting is both small and big.

The actual image is only 14" x 10", but it feels much bigger. I print at three sizes: 14" x 10" with a 1" border (16" x 12") and at 11" x 8.5" and then at postcard size (5.5" x 4.25"). The collectors I've talked to find it really moving, the type of work you can look at for years and still see something new. 

This is my most popular print.

I think that it might be the clarity of the message or the way the colors and imagery work together, but something about the painting appeals to people. I really love this one, and I'm just excited that I've been able to share it with so many people.

Beautiful. Just as advertised.

The print itself is beautiful.

I printed this by hand on Hahnemühle German Etching 310 g/mA Paper using a top-of-the-line Epson printer with archival pigment inks that is rated for 200+years.

It's uncanny how accurately the print captures the original. I think most people expect a print to be more like a poster. In this case, it's a faithful representation of the art, with subtle layering of color. The paper itself has a soft texture, and the effect is stunning.

I am so excited to be able to offer this level of quality at a reasonable price. Everyone who has seen the prints is blown away. I want this to be a heirloom for you.

Oh, it is magnificent!!! I just stared at it. So much to see. The colors are bright and subdued at the same time. Much better in real life.

I am only signing and printing 100.

Each one is signed and numbered by me. You are purchasing directly from the artist. (The postcard size 5.5" x 4.25" is unsigned)

Limited edition prints of this quality typically cost $150 or much more.

Because I paint, scan, print, market, and ship these myself, I can keep the costs down. I'm not doing this to make money. My goal is to make great art and get it into the hands of collectors who will really appreciate it.

Great art, great memories

This particular rendering of Palm Court really brought back the spirit of Palm Court and New College, one of the most positive and formative periods of my entire life. Also it’s a beautiful work.

Dan and I love this print, because it's powerful and inspiring, plus it is beautiful. We are so pleased to have it in our home.

Beautiful print

This is a truly excellent print. The aestehtics and craftsmanship and truly top-notch. I'm delighted to have it in my home.

Gorgeous

Since this painting depicts an iconic area of where I went to college, I have a nostalgic draw to it. But beyond that, this is a gorgeous painting that looks realistic but also artistic and a bit surreal. Michael James Freedman is an extremely talented artist and I'm very glad to have one of his prints on my wall.
