Where: The Vintage Painter on eBay
At the close of the auction the winning bidder chooses which one of the two canvas prints they want.
The Buck Ride
10″ x 12.5″ (13-1/4″ x 15-3/4″ framed), Limited Edition – #49 of 500
Two sisters riding a tricycle outside their barn. The painting is named after a regional Minnesota/Wisconsin slang term. The idea that you can take a ride on the back of “my bike for a buck”. Hence, the title of this print, “The Buck Ride.” This print is hand signed and numbered on the back frame.
The original painting is based on a 1940′s black and white image from my family’s photo albums and was purchased at the Cincinnati Summerfair on the grounds of the Coney Island Amusement Park.
At an art show and on my website I sell the custom framed, limited-edition archival prints for $95 each. If you don’t want to participate in the auction there are also 11″ x 14″ matted paper, unframed canvas prints and gift card packs of the The Buck Ride starting at $25.00 plus shipping and handling on my website.
Kittens in Black and White
10″ x 12.5″ (12-1/2″ x 15″ framed), Limited Edition – #42 of 500
The little girl hugs her kittens…or maybe keeps them in a death grip if you are looking from the kittens perspective. This print is hand signed and numbered on the back frame.
The original painting was based on a 1940′s black and white image from the my family’s photo albums and purchased at the Broad Ripple Art Fair in Indianapolis by a family visiting from Louisiana.
Ditto what I said earlier – at an art show and on my website I sell the custom framed, limited-edition archival prints for $95 each. And as I said earlier – there are also 11″ x 14″ matted paper, unframed canvas prints and gift card packs of the Kittens in Black and White starting at $25.00 plus shipping and handling on my website.
The frames are custom and handcrafted from woods recovered from old farms in Wisconsin and Minnesota. They are made specifically for me by a local master-craftsman that also builds vintage and rustic furniture.
The prints are limited-edition, hand signed and numbered on the back frame.
All of my canvas prints (aka giclees) are professionally printed with archival inks on stretched canvas. In the original paintings I invented the colors. All of paintings are done by hand in a traditional master’s method in an impressionism style. I do not use computers or trace the images.
