Still Life Study 8x10

This is a glaze painting of an olive green coffee mug on a magenta cloth. It's a study in how the glaze works. If you're interested in it, $85.00 is my asking price.

The Presidents

As far as The Presidents series goes, I am putting that to rest momentarily. The gentleman who I was working on the project with, has kind of put the book down. I was really hoping to have a great collection here. The idea behind the book was for me to do very high quality portraits in graphite of each U.S. President for a book about the presidents. Instead of having a bunch of stock pictures of each president, why not have one artist do all of the presidents in detail. Hopefully, the author will pick the book back up someday. If not, who knows, maybe I'll complete the series 'just because'. I learned a great deal about the presidents, and I hope to continue this journey someday.

Please Do Not Copy

It is sad when the owner of personal property has to remind others not to use his/her things without permission. You would be very upset if someone came into your house, or yard, or jumped into your car, and began to use it without your permission. Understand that this artwork is created by me. It takes anywhere from 18-32 hours per portrait. This is how I make my living. Please use my artwork for your desktop wallpaper. However, it is very unprofessional and unethical to take my artwork for your own personal use, to download it, and present it as your own. Nobody has the authority to alter my work.

Thank you,
John Price
