We regret to inform you that due to a rise in the artist's personal and professional concerns, we've decided not to open the shop as we were planning. This decision was carefully considered by both the site administrator and the artist, and we came to the conclusion that we cannot provide an adequate e-commerce service at this time. However, artworks, both original and prints, are still offered as indicated in the News/Notes page through the links to Saatchi,Fine Art America, and Artblr sites. Thank you for your understanding and support.
