“When listening at the canvas, I only ask of myself to take the space-time to dwell with the work in its such-ness, making every part of the process a trance inducing play, rather than racing to a foregone conclusion that I hold somewhere in my head.”  James e. Woody 1999

When Woody sells open edition prints, (through select online galleries and art platforms) there is no predetermined limit on how many prints will be available . This does not mean that an specific art work will be available indefinitely, so when you discover a painting you love, it’s always a good idea to act on it.  Most importantly, Woody’s limited edition prints are assigned to an exclusive master printer and sent directly to you by the Be Sensitive Studio.  Moreover, Woody’s limited edition prints are considered more valuable, and cost more than open edition prints.
