Sample COA for open edition canvas print

Soft Shell


“Soft Shell” – one of my paintings for “The Shape of Things To Come” the winter invitational group show at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York.  The original acrylic painting sold at the show, but we have prints & canvases & other merchandise available at – one of my personal favourites.  Similar composition to my animal-composite paintings like “Green Goddess” or “Arcimboldo Mermaid,” she is called “Soft Shell.” All of the creatures she is surrounded by are be animals that have hard shells – sea critters, nautilus, crabs, lobsters, barnacles, coral, etc. And then of course the girl herself does not have a shell, but hers is made up of the living animals.  Several of these items are pieces in my specimen collection displayed in my studio (the horseshoe crab shell shedding is one I collected myself on the beach and have mounted on my wall).  Astute viewers may notice the inclusion of the prehistoric arthropod Eurypterid (one of the oldest and largest arthropods that ever lived), the delicately beautiful peacock mantis shrimp, a coconut crab, an abalone & more!
Two different kinds of canvas prints are available!  The Masterpiece Limited Editions are limited to an edition of only FIVE canvases, hand embellished in acrylic paints by Jasmine herself, signed, dated, and numbered out of 5, measuring 20″x 30″ on thick gallery wrapped wooden stretcher bars (ready-to-hang).  We also have the Open Edition Canvases which are remarqued with the JBG initial on the front, measure 12″x 18″ (also wrapped & ready-to-hang) and come with a signed certificate of authenticity.

Additional Details

Glossy Photo Prints

All Glossy Photo Prints are printed on a glossy photo paper with Canon Lucia archival inks and signed ON THE BACK by ME, the artist. Small prints are printed on 8.5×11″ sheets and large prints on 13×19″ sheets, but the printed area will reflect the odd dimensions of the painting itself. When you select the print size and type that you want to purchase, the Printed Area Dimensions will appear below your selection. Please note the dimensions to make sure that the print you select is a size that will work for your needs. We cannot provide custom print sizes at this time. What you see offered is what is available.


We have TWO types of canvas prints available for this image. The Masterpiece Limited Edition Canvases (20″x 30″, hand embellished, signed & numbered out of 5 at $795 each) and the Open Edition Remarqued Canvases (12″x 18″ with a signed certificate at $125 each) are now available. All canvas prints are made on canvas with Canon Lucia archival inks. They are wrapped on boards and stretched over a frame and shipped ready-to-hang. The canvas sides are printed in black, creating a natural self-framing effect, so you don’t have to purchase an additional frame if you don’t want to. The entire piece is also painted with a UV varnish and then heat set for maximum protection and longevity. They are truly beautiful pieces and it is often difficult to tell them apart from the originals. Both types are on the deeper/thicker gallery wrapped boards than our earlier canvases have been, very sturdy and solid, and match the profile of those that are sold at Pop Gallery, etc. If you have any questions about the canvas prints or the differences between the Masterpiece Limited Editions and the Open Editions, please contact us!
