New in 2022! From now on my paintings will be based on participatory pricing. What this means is that the customer will set the value of the work. You pay what the work is worth to you. At checkout there will continue to be shipping and handling fees and a minimum base price to cover materials costs. Beyond that, you will choose whatever you would like to pay.
