Study of the Brass Queens
The Cold and Covid Couldn't Keep the Fun Out of Mardi Gras
For the last few years, my family and I have gone to New Orleans for Mardi Gras to see my son and the parades. I love it, but this year we couldn't go, so we did what we could.
We ate Po' Boys and listened to this cool all girl brass band in Brooklyn
The band previously had walked up to my pandemic birthday party (a gift from my wife) and so we've been following them. But this show, outside, 20 degrees, with masks and dancing in the middle of the day, this was a nice respite from quarantine and this time, I decided I wanted to create a keepsake. I took some pictures and made a sketch, and now it's available to all you music lovers.
It's a small painting with a lot of heart.
The painting is only 7" x 10", but it has a lot of energy. It's a quick study, completed in one day.
The prints are gorgeous.
I print this using a top-of-the-line Epson printer on archival Hahnemühle German Etching 310 g/mA Paper. I use pigment based inks that are certified to last over 200 years. It is uncanny how the print looks like the original.
The paper has a subtle texture on it that feels warm. Everyone who has seen these prints is amazed at how beautiful they are.
I am so excited to be able to provide something of such high quality at a reasonable price.
It fits in standard frames.
The original drawing is 7" x 10", but the print has a 1/4" border on the top, left and right and a 1" border on the bottom, so the print fits in a standard 11" x 8.5" frame.
I am only printing 10.
You will receive a signed and numbered print. I really think you'll like it (and it makes a great gift).
Limited edition prints of this quality typically cost $80 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.
