Our current print sale ends in just a few hours.
I'd like to thank those who have ordered the print; given that you liked the picture well enough to order it from seeing the measly JPEG, you're going to love it once you see the print. The print is five times better. If not ten times. Let's say 11.27 times to be precise.
Maybe it's mainly that I like it so much. In the print it has a quiet, otherworldly presence. I love the pearly, ethereal, otherworldly light that seems to come from the center of it, and those wonderful spots of color emerging from the depths of the background: the wash of violet in the center and the wash of that wonderful blue in the lower right-hand corner. Maybe it's the purity of the colors that I find so seductive.
Meanwhile, John just got word that three of his prints have been chosen for the Boston Athenaeum's spring exhibition, "New England on Paper: Contemporary Art in the Boston Athenaeum's Prints & Photographs Collection" (April 6–September 10, 2017). The exhibition opening is on Wednesday April 5, 5:30–7:30. So if you'll be in or near the Boston area the Spring or Summer you can see a few more of John's originals.
There's still time to order, but at noon the price goes from from our sale price of $160 back to the usual $475. If you have no preference of your own (note that "if") between the two papers, my pick would be (well, is, since it's the one I bought) the Canson Etching. I'm not saying it's "better," but just in case you don't know which to choose.
Thanks again! Grateful thanks also to John.
