My main interest is my original oil paintings that I have on my own website greenvanartusa.com named after the 1973 green Ford van I used as a traveling home and studio. Here I have mostly a cross section of my photography available as prints. I use a lot of my photos to work from when I am am doing my paintings but there are many that work better just as photos and there are many more than I could use as paintings. Prints are nice and it seems that is what most people want now but you lose the texture of the artwork-the brushstrokes, the canvas, and especially with impasto style work. And in the long run originals are much more likely to appreciate in value than prints. I grew up in a house with a number of Van Gogh prints and they were really nice but over the years I have been able to see most of VanGogh's original work and there is a big difference in the appearance and the value. I can't guarantee my originals will ever be as valuable as a Van Gogh but I would be pleased if you checked them out and saw more of the background of the greenvanartusa story there. that was the return address I used when I sent out postcards as I traveled around the USA.
