I am selling this large, rare and sparklingly luminous etching revealing the artist’s fascination with the effects of strong light and his romantic leaning towards natural scenery, for AU$212 (currently US$149.84/EUR132.51/GBP113.90 at the time of posting this print) including postage and handling to anywhere in the world (but not, of course, any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries).
If you are interested in purchasing this amazing etching that my eyes see as a rich tapestry of “woven” lines, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
