If you are interested in owning a print of this image , the paper size is 19x23 1/2" and the image measures 16x20". This is a limited edition of 500 signed and numbered prints. The cost, including priority mail shipping, has recently been reduced to $50. I made this decision because there are still almost half of the prints available.

The prints are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. They are consecutively numbered and sold in order of sale. . You may either purchase online using PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org, or send a check or money order to SPARRO Joe Maringo 142 Stark Drive Plum, PA 15239

God Bless. Debbie Stonebraker
