I Saw The Sign(-ing): A Levan Original

You have likely heard of artwork by Matisse, Picasso, Rembrandt, or Rockwell.

Those are all in the past.  Future generations will be talking about Levan, and I am now in possession of her first signed print.

Nancy Levan is a photographer and artist, who my wife and I have known thru the Chrysta Rae Photo Scavenger Hunt on Google Plus.  She recently started making these intricate abstracted drawings of women of various types, all having this great ethereal quality.

We decided to buy a print of her Ballerina to put up on Abigails room.

When I hit up Las Vegas, I hung out with her for the day (details to come in a later post), and I brought along the print for her to sign.  She signed her name on the front.
And a dedication on the back, including some much needed provenance (a word I learned from Pawn Stars - thanks boys!).

She ended up signing it at the famous Las Vegas sign - the symmetry is almost too good for words.

So now I have the first signed Levan.  I'll add it to my retirement fund (it pays to think about the future).

She sells her work on Fine Art America.  If you want to check out more, please visit her gallery
