An original hand carved & printed 4" x 6" linoleum block printed on acid free heavy 6" x 9" Bristol board with Speedball Water-based ink, signed and numbered by eccentric artist Brian A. Bernhard.
This print comes pre-mounted in a 8" x 10" hand cut window matte (ready to be framed) with a hand-carved, hand printed, one-of-a-kind signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.
MY TACOMA ACOUSTIC BASS - is part of a series of musical instrument linocut portraits I was inspired to carve after a collection of my personal musical instruments was stolen from my storage unit in 2017.
Many musicians (including myself) develop special bonds with their instruments, almost as if they are an additional body part, when these creative extensions of our souls are ripped away, its often quite traumatic. My way of dealing with the loss has been to make art.
(If you need a portrait of your own stolen musical instrument, please feel free to reach out, I'm always open to commissions.)
Given the nature of block printing by hand, each print is unique, color tones within the black ink which intentionally shift from print to print, making each print one-of-a-kind.
Additionally, given the cost of investment, I will add the USPS insurance for FREE for each print shipped! Also, fulfillment of our original limited edition art prints is always done by me (Brian), in person to make sure it will get to you safely. I will literally package it by hand myself and walk it directly to the post office.
