October, 2019, and for the past several decades: Open Studios.  ArtSpan organizes art events throughout the year, and for decades has held its traditional, city-wide San Francisco OPEN STUDIOS, when they usually display examples by many participating artists at SomArts Main Gallery, annually in the autumn. Taking precautionary measures during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, ArtSpan successfully launched an online version of the event.

Gifts and such

Shop for "print-on-demand" items with my images at Zazzle --NEW: Woodpecker puzzle; Mouse in its own box puzzle (GREAT gift for quarantine); glass trinket tray, or square trinket tray; other stuff at Redbubble or Cafe Press. (Threadless and Printful claim they offer more sustainable sources, so I am looking into that. Here's a blog explaining such concerns, trends, etc.)

Most of the above is made to order. I also make hand-crafted inkjet copies of my original art, which I mount on wood panels (complete with hanging hardware), and cover with encaustic wax. These look a lot like their originals! Price range: $60 — $120

Many other versions of my art can be printed onto canvas, metal, wood, or archival papers (check P.O.D. sites for their pricing).

Orders, commissions, contact

Undecided? For a free inkjet postcard-sized copy of my artwork, to try out at home, postage paid, just e-mail (below).
