That’s what kept me away. Last one from them was $85 and $15 shipping, a few months later and now it’s $120 and $20. Nice image, love Vanessa, have no hangups with giclees, but don’t gouge me so obviously.



You say gouge, I say charging what she probably should be. Vanessa doesn't do many print runs and there are only so many originals one can do. Needs to make a living to keep making art. Also assume gallery takes half of that.

Well said Tim.

I don’t have any issue with her making more money. But there’s no reason to charge $20 for a tube that size. Which is why it smells more like gouging than Vanessa saying hey let’s raise the prices. I could be completely off base on that, it’s just how I feel. Still love her and can’t wait to try and get the Vacvvm print.

It was up at $675, but you'd have to ask Choke if it sold at that price.

There are certain times when a bird perfectly suits the medium, and working on this fellow in graphite was a match made in bird art heaven

The care taken to the secondary animals/insects in her work is just as good as the birds. Simply jaw dropping
