Prints!

I was asked by a young mother whether I could sell them something for their baby room. 

I told her how much I usually charge for commission, but then she asked why it was that I charged $50-100 bucks when she could get a drawing for $10-20.

I explained it is because while I make a commission piece - designed specifically for the person and no one else would have it in the world, while some pieces, they are mass produced, and drawn however the artist wishes.

My friend didn't think it was such a big deal to have the one and only picture - so it got me thinking... why not have some prints on my website?

I always loved NZ birds... they are so unique, and some of their colors are exquisite! 

So I'm starting a NZ bird collection for prints! :) 

First one was a Tui, but I assume the list will grow
