SURRENDER

12" x 48" $350

People think these are high ticket items and I say they are priced at the same rate as all of my art. I price my work by my hourly rate of $100 an hour, which has not changed in 10 years. This sign took me 3 hours to make. There are 3 paint colors used here and each is layered with 2 or 3 coats of paint. I measure and carefully write the letters in pencil first and then paint them in carefully, these are paintings, requiring a steady hand to make each letter. and repairing if i miss the mark and my hand messes up. the shipping is $50, that includes me wrestling this into a big box, carefully wrapping with bubble wrap so it arrives in great shape. They are heavy so shipping is expensive, especially to the east coast. There are boards attached to the back to lift these signs about an inch from the wall. These signs were for sale at a group show in NYC, curated by world-renowned artist, Jack Pierson, and were priced at $1500 each. I love these signs, they are beautiful, well made and they are medicine.
