Archival Paper SN limited editions are hand signed and edition numbered by the artist, Mark Lawrence in pencil directly underneath the artwork along the bottom border of the paper.  Mark will also frequently write in the title of the piece along the same bottom border area.

All archival paper editions include an additional two inch border or margin for matting and framing purposes. Learn more about our Archival Paper Limited Editions here.


Premium Canvas SN limited editions are signed with metallic ink by Mark on the front right corner of the canvas.  Mark’s signature is approximately two inches from the bottom and side edges of the canvas to accommodate traditional gallery wrapped framing. 

Canvas editions include an additional white three inch border or margin for stretching and framing purposes. To signify authenticity, Canvas SN limited editions are also signed by Mark and edition numbered with the letters S/N during the numbering process on the back side of the canvas.

ARCHIVAL QUALITY

UV PROTECTED

Archival Paper editions are hand coated with an archival UV clear acrylic coating. The special coating provides UV protection from harmful sun light and abrasion resistance to protect the artwork for generations if properly maintained.


ESN- Embellished Signed & Numbered Editions

Embellished Signed and Numbered limited editions are currently only offered on premium canvas artwork. Each Embellished Standard Numbered edition is designated by the letters ESN during the numbering process.

ESN editions are ultra-hand embellished by the artist, Mark Lawrence. Mark’s unique time intensive embellishing process adds brush strokes of texture and depth to the entire artwork. For this reason every ESN edition piece is a matchless work of art!

During the ultra-embellishing process Mark completely hand brushes the entire artwork using a clear and thick archival artist’s gel medium. As he repaints the canvas he follows the contour of the composition and builds rich textures reminiscent of an original oil painting.

All ESN edition pieces are signed with metallic ink by Mark on the front right corner of the canvas.  Mark’s signature is approximately two inches from the bottom and side edges of the canvas to accommodate traditional gallery wrapped framing.  Let us know if you would like your canvas signed in a different location to meet your specific framing needs.

ESN Limited Edition pieces are certified for color fidelity, media defects, embellishing textures and consistency.  Mark hand signs with a metallic pen on front right corner of artwork image and E/S/N edition numbers each piece on the back side only after the quality has been assured.
