:wave: Print request

Richard ~ Is there anyway I can entice you to make this print available on DA. I would very much enjoy buying it in wrapped canvas 20 X 30 in. I purchased Arabian Coffee this way and it works so well ..I would love to get Coffee Awakes. Let me know.

Is there an asking price that would make it worthwhile for you ..?

Hi Lee and many thanks for your kind comments and contacting me again. I remember our earlier communications also. I was just so annoyed at DA for deleting my featured image and simply ignoring my communuications. After I followed their published complaints procedure too. It's not a money issue at all, as I don't contribute to DA for the money. I genuinely want people to have access to my artwork for the warm feeling inside when someone wants to own and display something that I have created.

OK - Please bear with me for a day or so while I get over a mad administrative panic and I'll temporarily upload a high resolution image and enable prints...

Take care, hoping that you had a great Xmas and wishing you a Happy, Prosperous New Year...

Richard ~ No hurries, I’m just glad you’re doing this for me. I’ll wait till it becomes available in the print shop. If DA hasn’t been responsive ..that’s their loss. You’re golden.

Best wishes for the New Year my friend ..!!!

Hi Lee, I've just submitted it as a print at 10,000 pixels on the longest dimension, which appears to be the highest resolution DA will allow me. I enabled a 20" x 30" wrapped canvas with a 5% matte. I hope this is OK and thank you for your interest in my artwork. Take care and I hope you have a Happy, Prosperous New Year... :bye:

I have added several of your pieces to my favorites today and while I wish I could comment on each one, I have a three year old who demands my attention. I wanted to let you know that I am moved and amazed at your ability to capture the emotion and the passion and movement that is in dance. I have absolutely no ability to dance at all, but watching it has always brought me great joy. My middle daughter is a natural ballerina and so lovely to watch.

You have done a wonderful job capturing the beauty of the form and the intense feeling that I know I always get whenever I watch someone who can dance with their whole heart and soul. Seing your gallery today was a great treat for my eyes and my heart. You have a wonderfl gift. Thank you for sharing it with all of us.

Lovely colors and pose. The only thing that bothers me is the length of her arms.. They seem a little short for the length of her entire body.
