Mini Tree of Life
Here's a photo of the 12x12" reproduction of Tree of Life (1/4 the size of the original). A collector of prints of my work has purchased this reproduction and is interested in others once I have the originals scanned. The ability to have high quality reproductions made one at a time, as they're purchased, is wonderful because in the past artists have had to order traditional fine art prints in quantities of 250-500 or more, which is not only an expensive proposition, but also creates distribution and storage problems, not to mention more than a little anxiety about when and if the remaining 249+ will be sold and the cash outlay recovered. With this reproduction process, the copies are not only incredibly true in colour and clarity, and may be created on canvas, but they're also affordable to a wider audience of art appreciators.
Only time will tell if sales of my imagery increase due to this process; later this year the company producing reproductions will take the project on-line and in the meantime they're pursuing marketing opportunities - cross your fingers for me.
