How this painting could look on your wall. Ships unframed so you can choose your own style for displaying it. It’s not a good idea to put original watercolor artwork in a bathroom that will get steamy or humid, but the color of this wall was incredible and I couldn’t resist the mock-up.

All of my prints are processed in house with a professional giclée art printer using archival inks. The paper is archival watercolor paper for high quality prints. 


Notecards are 4 x 5.5″ or 5 x 7″, blank inside, and printed on the same professional printer as my prints. Each are packaged in a clear bag with an envelope and the insert that tells the story of how I began my watercolor journey with Ozark pigments. All of my artwork is available on notecards, and you can mix and match to order a set of 5 for a discount. Sets are not individually packaged, but are attractively presented together in a box.
