For Beauty & Truth No. 02 / Limited Edition Print
For Beauty & Truth is an ongoing explorational series of limited edition, fine art botanical prints. Each print serves as a beautiful reminder that death is not the opposite of life, but the counterpart to birth. Everything must have its end, or there is no beginning. I wish to convey a sense of beauty, truth, and serenity through this botanical series.
“Death is the end of ephemeral life and the beginning of an infinite, eternal life” - Debasish Mridha
For Beauty & Truth No. 02 is printed on heavyweight (315gsm) museum-grade, archival Hahnemühle cotton rag photo paper with archival pigment inks that will resist fading for hundreds of years with proper care. The pure cotton paper features substantial thickness and a beautiful luster finish resulting in outstanding reproduction of color, detail, and deep blacks.
Each print is made-to-order, printed, hand-cut, and shipped from my studio on the coast of Maine. Limited Edition prints are signed and numbered, and include a Certificate of Authenticity. I recommend framing your print and placing the certificate in the back of the framed artwork in an envelope. Frame not included.

As the edition runs low, pricing may increase due to the limited nature of the print.
I highly encourage framing your artwork! The perfect frame will not only protect your art, but it will enhance the artwork, giving it an even more beautiful presence in your space. I recommend framing your print with a 2.5" mat or larger.
The photos used in this listing are for illustrative purposes only and may not be to scale. Cropping may occur depending on size. Please check the actual dimensions provided in this listing + keep in mind that the colors you see on your monitor may differ slightly from those on the artwork due to variations in monitor settings.
Print sizing refers to the paper size. Each print includes a 0.5"-1.5” white border, depending on print size.
Due to the delicate nature, please handle the print only by its edges and refrain from touching the surface when possible.
