Winter Wall Art “New York America Poster”
In this image, the American flag used to produce this print hung in front of this home on the tragic day of 9.11.01. I used the flag in number of thematic series calling up American hymns and verse that in my opinion have helped define who we are as Americans. So, at the time, I called the first series of seven posters the “Who We Are Collection.” Of these, the Star-Spangled Banner has been the most popular, and seen two printings, to date. “God Bless America” is the second most popular; very few of these remain, frankly. However, on my website here, you can order any of these images in digital, on-demand format. I am exceedingly pleased about this. Here is “New York America,” from the Americana Posters Gallery. Beneath the flag show in this image, note the verse from the hymn, “America.” You see here the print as it appears on Aluminum. I have to admit, this is a striking, even spanky image. It arrives ready to hang on the wall.
Below, you see an exciting prototype, a glass print, a Fracture, as it is named. It expresses an image that is a photo-collage. In the image, the utterly notorious Schumer and Pelosi ride an Ass, a donkey, carrying their own, branded video camera to record the action. The title of this work from 2019 is, “Nice Job on Border, Mr. President.” Given the passage of time, I think this little image carries a certain gravity about it I could not have foreseen. I’m sure I don’t have to rehash the details. The print is on the small size, about 14″ x 11.5″ inches. It, too, arrives ready to hang on the wall. From my Limited Edition Gallery.
Question for you: Have you ever purchased a graphic print? An art print? Maybe right now, with Spring a couple of weeks away– instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. Lift someone’s spirits! Giving art, giving prints can be a joyful experience…even in a dismal time such as now. When I give a print, it most assuredly is a joyful experience– most especially during the “Drearies” of early March.
Prints are all produced using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit often, as the new year moves into latter February. Buy a print every now and again, one that moves you. As the Pandemic may be now winding down, what better way to celebrate than…with a late-winter art print…a lighthouse print, perhaps, or a poster with a patriotic theme, not a bad gift choice for a friend or relative, post President’s Day.
Two unusual and decidedly helpful features on my art site: The first– WALL Preview, a capability that visualizes your art selection in your specifications as seen in different settings; living room, bedroom, sitting room, conference room, these sorts of things, as referenced, above. Secondly, the Live Augmented Reality feature that allows you to see your chosen art work on YOUR wall…in your setting. Pretty exciting stuff, an under-appreciated feature.
“Business Advice” for day: The siege of Ukraine continues. It is horrifying, is it not. What? 35 countries voted in the UN NOT to condemn Russia. Talk is, China coordinated this attack to come just AFTER the Olympics. Ominously, monstrous days appear to be just ahead as Russia encircles cities in Ukraine preparing to turn them into rubble, it is reported. People all over the world pray now for Ukraine. “We Are All Ukrainians,” is heard throughout the world, and it seems true and yet wholly inadequate to the moment. I have seen “Trending on Twitter, World War III,” in response to Russia’s threat to go Nuclear. Astonishing to read, much less to consider. We are in a time of peril. Prayers and actions from citizens all over the world unfold, thank goodness. Nations take stock. The course, the solution, the resolution, all unclear. We brace, and pray, again.
You may find my new NFT art interesting, seen here on Rarible. I will be offering new NFTs of original art as this year unfolds. Some videos of creative work are now on YouTube. Find a mixed-bag on Soundcloud. And, lastly, check out some art blogs (also in SOUND) on Anchor. Build your print collection this year. You can see all this on Linktr.ee.
A special thanks for your interest and support of my work.
