Cleaning out a drawer...

"Cut Glass"

Image: 15.5"x 11"
Edition: 425
Printed: 1989
Available: 5 prints  ~  #418, #419, #420, #421 &  #422
I think these were returned from a gallery at one time and
placed in the drawer for safe keeping.
Original Price: $60.00  This is a hard to find print and has
basically been sold out since 1999!
4 color offset lithographs ~ All in excellent condition
A beautiful print which can be framed country or very
contemporary.  Worth a second look!

We have had a busy week sharing vacation time with
friends.  We did some fun, very different day trips.

Monday: A trip to Philadelphia, starting the morning at

Eastern State Penitentiary.  We were there several hours
touring the old prison.  Very interesting, you use head
phones for your own tour.  Lunch at Jacks Firehouse,
excellent! Then the afternoon at Laurel Hill Cemetery.
Walking around looking at stones and sculpture.  Not
as exciting as the one we go to in Ohio but interesting.

Tuesday: Off to Harpers Ferry, WV.  We scheduled a
fantastic tour with Rick from O Be Joyful Tours.
Rick was in period costume and had a great sense of
humor.  He made every effort to keep us in the shade
while giving us the historical background of Harpers
Ferry the town, John Brown and then the towns role in
the Civil War.  I cannot say enough about this tour...
EXCELLENT.  So much better than walking around
the town reading plaques.

I spent every other free moment working on my commission.

Good luck with sales this weekend, Andy. I think I have a very similar bowl downstairs myself!

This is a beautiful painting- I love the way the cutglass shines in the sunlight!

Hi Andy, I just found the cut glass watercolor framed and signed by you in a thrift store in NJ and I bought it. I am now wondering what is worth, it is numbered 199/425 it has your signature hand written on the back. thank you, Joyce

Joyce, the current framed value is $375. It may need a fresh mat and frame to update it.
Sold for $100 framed originally.
Good find!
