Purchasing Images: Most of the images shown in the galleries here are available for purchase, but sales happen most naturally when people see my work first hand, either in a gallery or my studio. Internet sales are fine for commodity products but are less suited for custom made artwork. That said, if you are interested in an image the best thing to do is start a conversation via email. Just write to SPR@sprimages.com or use the Contact link in the main menu. You can also fill out a Quotation Request by clicking on the button below. Better yet, come visit my studio in Santa Fe, NM.
About Editions: Most of my images are limited to editions of five or ten prints with two Artist's Proofs. This means that after an edition has sold out (at 5/5 or 10/10), the image will be retired and no longer offered for sale. I like this approach because it enhances the long-term value of the work and encourages me to do new work to replace sold-out editions. Like many artists, I usually raise the price of an image incrementally as it approaches retirement. Part of this is to offer value to buyers of first editions. If you have questions about this, let me know.
Image Sizes: Most of the images offered here have been exhibited in galleries. The sizes you see listed as you look through the site are what I felt to be most appropriate to the subject, composition and scale of the image. You will also note that I like to work with fairly small number of aspect ratios, mostly 1:1, 1:2 and 1:3. You will see a few that are in the classic 2:3 ratio which most camera sensors designed to record. Also, if the framed dimensions of an image seem confusing, here’s why: a finished image that is 24 x 68 inches is built from a print that is 22 x 66 inches (a 1:3 ratio). Add two inches to each dimension for the total.
Pricing: Prices typically reflect most recent gallery and sales pricing, usually adjusted as editions deplete. Here is a summary of current prices for first editions by typical framed sizes:
17 x 17 inches: $950
24 x 24 inches: $1,250
24 x 35 inches: $1,500
24 x 46 inches: $1,750
36 x 36 inches: $2,250
24 x 68 inches: $2,500
Satisfaction Guarantee: If you DO purchase an image via whatever process, I stand behind every sale with a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.
