Card with print as pictured, fine quality. I didn't see the note about combining shipping, and the artist refunded me the shipping cost on one of the two cards I bought.
A lovely print, thank you!

Remembering How to Breathe
It was in Manchester, New Hampshire, while pursuing my longtime career in academic publications, that I returned to my studio art roots and began oil painting again with New England impressionist June Latti, at the Currier Museum of Art. It felt like remembering how to breathe.
A native of upstate New York with a BA in studio art, I've worked variously as graphic designer, illustrator, retail display designer, art director, writer, editor, communications coordinator, academic publications director, and drawing instructor.
Since returning to the Greater Binghamton area of New York as GreenBoat Design / GreenBoat Studio, I've been making award-winning freelance fine art and design, teaching oil painting at local libraries, and showing as an Exhibiting Member of Cooperative Gallery 213 in Binghamton. It's the life and career I always wanted.
My hope is that you'll see in my work a reflection, an exploration, of this re-found freedom to create. My heart is open to you in my work. Take my inspiration and make it yours.
Q. - I see a number of paintings of morris dance amongst your work. Are you a morris dancer?
A. - Not anymore, but in the past I have danced with Hearts of Oak Morris (mixed), Binghamton/Ithaca NY; Rose Mountain Morris (women), Montrose PA; and, briefly, BF Harridans Morris (women), Binghamton NY.
Q. - I know you make and sell earrings - where are they?
A. - They're at Old Barn Hollow, a locovore and artisan shop in Binghamton NY, and sometimes at Cooperative Gallery 213, also in Binghamton. I'm no longer selling earrings online, except by request.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator, Artist, Writer, Shipping
An in-house graphic designer, communications professional, and art/publications director for many years, in 2009 I returned to my studio-art roots and began painting again. It felt like remembering how to breathe.
My art work is available to you as signed limited-edition archival prints in various sizes, as well as blank-inside unsigned greeting cards.
In many cases, the original artworks themselves are also for sale.
Prints and cards will not include the watermark copyright notices.
PLEASE NOTE: As artist I retain all copyright and reproduction rights to these images, except by explicit contractual arrangements prior to use. You may not alter them or use them for other purposes in any way or medium.
I also sell earrings made from new and vintage parts, and sometimes other vintage this and that, at GreenBoat Earrings and Vintage: http://www.etsy.com/shop/GreenBoatVintage

Sales Tax: NEW YORK STATE BUYERS
By law, I must charge destination-based sales tax to all packages shipped within NYS. Since different localities add different rates to the standard state sales tax, there is no way for me to tell, until I have your address, what sales tax to charge you.
IF YOUR LOCAL COMBINED SALES TAX IS GREATER THAN 8%, please select "OTHER" as your payment method, and wait for a revised invoice. Then follow the instructions in the transaction notice you receive by email after checkout. (Really, it's not as complicated as it might sound! Just click "Other," and I'll take it from there.)
Thanks for your patience and understanding!
I accept payment through either Etsy or PayPal, or by US postal money order (US orders only).
Credit card customers: You don't need a PayPal account to use PayPal for payment.
Please pay at the time of purchase. If I don't receive payment or communication within 3 days of your order I will cancel the purchase and re-list the item.

Refunds and Exchanges
I photograph as true to color as I can, but different devices will show colors differently. If the artwork or print you buy seems radically different than what you thought you were getting, you can return it and I'll refund your money.
