Artist Signature

custom printed on fine art paper


"This unique piece of fine art is printed upon receiving your order Then I meticulously paint on top of it using soft pastels to add detail and vivid color, which also makes the print a stand-alone artwork, slightly different even from the original painting. In the enhanced print, also known as a remarque, I paint out my original signature so that the finished painting can be signed anew to indicate that it is a one-of-a-kind piece."


an archival acid-free ivory mat and acid-free foam board backing secure the remarque and make this elegant artwork simple to frame

the 12" x 18" art image is matted to outer dimensions of 18" x 24" so that it fits a ready made frame (frame not included)

a clear, resealable envelope protects the enhanced print until you frame it


PS. the ribbon-tied foam board case we package this painting in makes an elegant gift presentation!

As dawn light brushes across the ruins of Terlingua Ghost Town outside Big Bend National Park, the seemingly drab desert is backlit with color. On this winter dawn, pale yellow and gold rays gilded the softly crumbling ruins. Translucent pads of prickly pear soaked in the light, and even the creosote bushes glowed with the light of a new day.
