I thought I was ordering an 8x10 image not a 5x7 image on 8x10 paper. Poor labeling. Not Happy at all that this was smaller than I wanted.

I am very sorry that Carolyn was unhappy with the image size. I have sent her a larger print at no charge and revised my listing to better explain the image and paper sizes. Thank you!

About

The lake and shore are my inspiration!

Everyone calls me Barry. Over 45 years ago at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh I met great teachers like Fran Ford, Tom Helwig and John Johns. Then I had a career in advertising and the printing industry. For many years I worked for a greeting card company. Today my three kids are grown and on their own. I am now a husband, father, grandfather, artist, teacher, fisherman, gardener, friend, and a person who really cares about my faithful art customers.
Along with quality prints of my paintings, you will find ORIGINALS and fish rubbings or GYOTAKU as they are called.
. My studio is smoke and pet free. Thank you for visiting and good luck to you!
