More About This Print

Olde Time Heartstrings is a portrait of a courageous little soul sitting by a campfire with his meager belongings. Despite a hard and lonely “life,” he manages to keep singing, even in death.

Inspired by the crackling recordings of American folk songs from the early part of the 20th century, much of the imagery of this painting is very rooted that period, from the vaudevillian backdrop of stars and clouds to the moonshine jug and depression-era bindle where the skeleton has laid his hand-stitched socks out to dry.

Professionally printed by Fidelis Art Prints of Vancouver, this limited edition print has been enlarged from the tiny original and slightly color-shifted by the artist to create a unique work of art in itself. Mellow monochromatic tones set the mood for this print, where the darker imagery of death contrasts with the subtle pink hues and overall soft feel of the work.

This limited edition print is signed and numbered by the artist and comes with a certificate of authenticity from Fidelis Art Prints signed by the artist and Fidelis color technician.
