    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg I've had these for awhile and I really like them. I've looked up this artist and I'm finding prints all over the place ranging from $25-$100+. I can't find any real information on the artist, other than he was born in 1963 I believe. He seems like he is well established as an artist.

    These two pieces are from 1993. I know they are prints but I'm having a hard time locating anything about the actual painting or any other prints that may have been made. One is tilted "Roma" and the other is "Athena". These are large, roughly 24x 36.

    Well, I found out more about the artist. Looks like he was part of the Phoenix Art Group when these two pieces were made.

    I contacted the artist and sent some images of these to him. I find it interesting that he worked at The Phoenix Art Group as a printmaker during the time that these were made. I hoping that he can confirm that he did these prints himself or not.

    That was odd...I called Jay B. Hall by the phone number that was listed on his resume that he has with above mentioned info. in it. When I stated that it mentions on his resume that he worked for the Phoenix Art Group, he quickly denied it and said I had the wrong person.

    Why would an artist do that? I'm pretty sure he gets this kind of thing all the time but he can politely decline to comment.

    Maybe it is the wrong person. I guess it's back to searching. It just bumfuzzles me that it states he worked at Phoenix Art Group but denied that fact.

    Could be the wrong person, but not all artists want to be tracked down and called at home or at work. People deserve some privacy.

    I understand privacy but this number was on a site for him, along with his email.
