Tony Fitzpatrick's Tokyo Series




Every time I see a new series of Tony Fitzpatrick's work I wish I had the funds to be a true collector of art. I am the proud owner of one of his prints "Flowers of Chance" thanks to my friend Susie, a master printer, who found the print at an art fair for an affordable price. She called, I ran to the bank. I say affordable, but I was eating spaghetti in for quite a while after proudly taking it home.

It's one of those rare indulgences that has never resulted in buyer's remorse. Sadly for me, Mr. Fitzpatrick's collage drawings are way out of my price range. So I will be admiring his Tokyo Series from a far and taking comfort in the fact that it is nice to see an artist I admire getting his due.
