The work was hand printed and published by the artist at The Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Please note that this etching is shipped to the collector without a frame or mat. This keeps the price low and allows the collector personal choice in mat selection and framing. A sturdy cardboard box is employed for shipping the work. The etching is first wrapped in two layers of acid free glassine and then placed between two archival boards. This is next placed into the shipping carton and securely packed with bubble wrap. The Absolute Arts Dot Com price includes all handling costs, shipment supplies, and the coast of the shipment box. Mailing costs are added. This work is also from my NEW ORLEANS series of 2013 and incorporates the traditional etching techniques of intaglio, aquatint, and drypoint. The print size is about 15 high by 11 wide. Nine acid baths were required for this work. I used a silver metallic oil-based ink, Charbonnel brand, mixed with organic powdered mother-of-pearl the black paper used was STONEHENGE brand from England.
