Suburban Home, Grass Valley, California

This was a commission from a local art dealer, to produce a lithograph drawing of his home for a greeting card and other applications, plus as an art gift to friends, family and corporate relations. The sheer ordinariness of the scene is a challenge. I used slanted light effects and sharp exploitation of shadows, highlights of white paper left unmarked, stone and wood effects on the house and garden shack, shadow effects under the foliage, and some scribble effects on the trees that tell us that it's a drawing, not a photo.

GRAPHITE LITHOGRAPHIC STYLE MINIATURE LANDSCAPES ó $25 each. Yes, that is the wholesale price, no discount for quantity, because thereís a lot of cost behind each print, and we donít control the printing costs, the printers do. The originals were created in graphite on Heavyweight 300 gram Arches Rives BFK etching paper, and were massaged into prints by Marvette, who matched the prints with the originals. In a frame, you canít tell the difference between the print and the original. My original graphite works are no longer for sale, prints only.
