Lithographs: literally "stone pictures"; prints produced by offset lithography employ a complicated process involving four metal plates; one for each colored ink. My lithographs are printed by the Fine Art division of Colson Printing Company in Valdosta, Ga. They are printed on acid-free paper with fade-resistant inks. They are all Limited Editions, signed and numbered by the artist.

The biggest advantage of purchasing a lithograph is getting to enjoy a reproduction of a work that the artist considers one of his/her best. Of the hundreds of paintings I have produced, I have selected only a few images to mass-reproduce. These are my favorites. Also, unlike oil paintings, watercolor originals don't rely on the physical texture of the media, so lithographs of watercolors are very true to the original painting.
