'In any land what is there more glorious than sunlight! Even here in the desert where it falls fierce and hot like a rain of meteors, it is the one supreme beauty to which all things pay allegiance ... The chief glory of the desert is its broad blaze of omnipresent light.'

A New Year

First of all, my best wishes to all my friends and customers for the Year 2015!
I hope to see you all again at my shows.
For next spring I have added some venues that seem promising and open up new markets. I hope it works out! Please see my events schedule.

I also upgraded my giclee printer form a rather old Epson Stylus Pro 9800 to a brand new
 Canon iPF8400. It also prints up to 44 inches wide, but it uses 12 colors!
I also found that one set of chrome pigment inks sets me back by over $1250. Ouch!

The printer is 6 inches longer than the old one to accommodate the extra cartridges. Of course I measured whether it would fit into the place in my studio where the old one sat. But when it was delivered on a huge truck with a fork lift it turned out that it compared to the old one like a minivan to an upright piano. It did not fit through any doors or hallway.
 So it came in through the patio door into the bed room, and there it stayed. With its own designated PC.

But the great news is that new printing media and more colors are available and even my old trusted products like the 6x8 canvas blogs seem to shine in a new radiance. So I am very happy with the change and I have already sold many new prints at my 2 December shows.

The prices for prints will not change much. They are still somewhat lower at shows than over the internet to encourage sales at the booth. Please go to the page 'Prices for art-prints and printing services'  on this blog. It overrides all older prices anywhere on the internet.
