The Egg And I

Here are two lovely hand colored (on linen) prints with an image for the season.
They are huge, 30 inches by 36 inches, framed, and the scale is what makes them so distinctive. We have been using framed botanical and nature specimen prints for years as go-to staples. These are a little outside the box, and look fresh and updated.
Limited edition of 500 by artist John Moore, $950. each framed.
For those of us who don't have this money, and not to take anything away from the artist, because if I had it, I would buy this print, I think you could try something like this using a copy machine, and your local kinkos to make a poster size print. These old specimen type prints are copy right free in the public domain. You could hand color it, or not, depending on how it looks to you. Good looking poster size frames are available Target; Cost Plus; Wal Mart, etc.
But if you're flush, call Probst Decorators at 504 895-2094 - they have three of the prints left that you can see "in person" at 3000 Magazine Street, New Orleans.
