Free Zen Print
Get a FREE 8 X10 inch, high resolution, 300 ppi (pixels per inch) print absolutely free. Download the .jpg file and print it as often as you like. Give prints away to your family and friends. Use it any way you like. I only ask three things.
1. Don't sell the prints.
2. Don't erase the signature. It's digital, not the actual pen signature you get on the prints I make. Don't erase the copyright or website url. Don't worry. Those both appear below the matt area for framing.
3. Pay it forward. Share this website and resources with others. Keep the good Karma flowing.
That's it. Simple. Other than those three things you can download the file and enjoy the print any way you like.
To dowload your free 8 X 10 inch high resolution file, simply enter your name and email address in the boxes to the right. You'll immediately receive an email with a link to the print file.
You'll also receive updates telling you about new paintings on the website, new workshops, new resources and links to the next free print (Yes, there will be more than one. I'll send at least two or three per year.)
I'm sure your email box is probably as full as mine. Don't worry, I only send updates out a few times a year.
