Why I Do It

A recent eBay customer complained about the quality of the Map "postcards" which he purchased and asked to return them. I will, of course, honor his request, but I feel compelled to explain a few things. These cards are not commercially printed glossy reproductions. They are color photocopies which I have hand mounted on recycled cardboard of varying thicknesses and quality. They have been hand-cut, dated, and signed by me. They are miniature works of art. I don't do this to make money or rip off the general public. As a matter of fact I lose money on every one I sell and ship. I do it because I want people to be able to own a little piece of this project without paying the $240 I get for every original 8 by 10-inch panel. Maybe I should explain more in my blog! I do it because the people who have them love them. They love them as simple little paintings. Or they love them because they imagine the stories behind them. Or they try to decipher the messages on the inscriptions, or like the colors....or...or.......
