THIS ART PIECE IS A STATEMENT. We can do better. We can choose reusable options over single-use plastic.
This listing is for one 5” x 7” signed original hand-drawn (inked) coffee & watercolor painting. The shark itself was painted using watercolors - the coffee rings were made using coffee. You can view part of the creation process (along with the coffee being spilled onto this piece) here: https://youtu.be/uRCKCuvX28A
Note: This is a 'one of a kind' painting with plastic embelishment. The plastic pieces were part of the beach clean-up I did on the shore of Lake Michigan. Each piece was cleaned and dried prior to being utilized in this art project. Prints will never be made available due to the 3-Dimensional aspect that the plastic has created.
This is an original painting (not a print*) - so there are going to be small imperfections that make it magical and wonderful in its own way. The plastic was a pain to place on the painting and might not be 100% perfect. Please review all photos. Any ink smudges, imperfections, love, and remaining marks are included free of charge. <3

Shipping within the USA:
- $4 for USPS 1st Class parcel - This includes all materials needed to ensure your artwork is well protected. I always toss in a sticker/card etc! Once your order shipped, ETA is approximately 3-7 days, depending upon your location.
- $7 for USPS Priority - This is slightly discounted from the actual Post Office rate. Artwork is well protected, and of course, I toss in a sticker/card etc! Once your order is shipped, ETA is approximately 2-3 days, depending upon your location. I do my best to ship all orders the next day, but if you need your order shipped out immediately, please contact me directly.
Shipping for International (outside of the USA):
- $13 for USPS International 1st Class Parcel - This is slightly discounted depending upon the weight of your order and your location (International orders are usually around $14-$15). Artwork is well protected and includes a sticker/card etc! Once your order is shipped, ETA is approximately 10-30 days depending upon your location. The ETA also depends entirely on how quickly Customs will process your package.
- Important: Customs Fees - Please note that I do NOT include any method of covering the cost of Customs fees. If your parcel arrives and you are notified of a fee, you must pay that fee. It's unfortunate that some countries charge higher rates, but this is something I can not predict. You might be charged a fee to acquire your parcel. You might not have to pay anything at all. This is beyond my control, and is 100% related to your local Government/Post Office/Customs Service, etc. and whatever they request from you.
