A Hand-Tinted Original Stone Lithograph
From the Magic Fish Studio, the home of James Christensen, comes this sophisticated yet whimsical piece of fine art. It sprang to life as an unfinished verse in the artist’s sketchbook.
The magic of the initial muse carried over into the decision to create the work as an original stone lithograph. It is a stone lithograph because James actually drew the image on a 300 lb. limestone. This is all the more impressive considering the image is created in reverse onto the stone. The image is transferred from the stone onto a sheet of fine watercolor paper by hand on a lithographic press. The final stone lithograph is considered original because this image does not exist as we see it until the lithograph is produced.
Hand-tinting original stone lithographs predates color printing. That the color work on each is added by hand enhances the concept of each being an original; no two are exactly alike.

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
2. We apologize that there are some artists who do not allow on-line listings of their prices.
In either event, when you email for pricing, you must include your phone number and location. We'll get back to you quickly.
If you are having difficulty using our "email for price" or "bid" forms, please call us or switch to another internet browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc.)
