Too funny, my wife was trying as well. I wonder how many of us got our partners up early on a Sunday morning to help out.


My wife helps sometimes on drops. She has scored some pretty good stuff, never really been able to double up though.

so my I just picked up my commission from my framer. I went with a mat black matt with a deep mat black frame, with the work floated to show off the deckled edges. The darker line you can see around the border of the mat is actually the depth of the frame (apologies for the dark photo). I'm very happy with it, it looks sharp.

Curiously still available. Price hike was a big deterrent huh?

Maybe her print at v1 next week will sell better. Everyone loves those screenprints.

All sold out now. Glad I managed to grab one as I forgot I had to get up a bit earlier!

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.

her originals are cheap too. She could, and should, charge more.
